New Delhi, Oct 2 : Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan says he is proud of the maturity of the countrymen in supporting the Ayodhya verdict, and hopes that the judgment will unite the nation.
“Equal distribution of land hopefully will lead to equal acceptance of each other’s beliefs. Happy at maturity and patience countrymen have shown,” Shah Rukh posted on his Twitter page late Friday.
He said: “1/3 of heart for family. 1/3 to work. 1/3 for pumping blood. All get passing marks and heart still beats for my country. All good knock on wood.”
The actor, a devout Muslim who married Hindu heartthrob Gauri Chhibber almost 20 years ago, was the point of debate as an icon of religious unity at a three-day conference which ended Saturday at a Vienna University.
“There was a conference on me in Vienna. Was humbled and proud that Indian cinema is becoming a global platform for discussion,” he said.
While he has been shooting for his home production “Ra.One” for some time, he is now preparing to shoot for “Don 2”.
“Looking forward to just being a star on sets. Being a producer doesn’t allow u (you) that on ‘Ra.One’,” he tweeted.
