    It is quite obvious that SRK is trying to avoid any new controversy. He is probably trying to avoid another hatemongering campaign by the hindutva brigade. He is no Aamir. Aamir Khan is a "method actor" known for his integrity and backing of social causes and themes even in his films, and it would be statesmanlike to acknowledge his comments during the intolerance debate as an extension of his social role as b ambador of Incredible India, aimed towards educating and strengthening the social fabric.

        I am surprised SRK put his nose in the Incredible debate. Did he think his name might be proposed for the selection? If he did then he must have been dreaming. SRK lost his chance when he made that Intolerant comment on TV channel just before Bihar elections. Media pla a big role by inviting all the stars and authors to speak about Intolerance in India just before Bihar election. They all had grudge against PM Modi big win elections and nothing else. Any way India need a female face and not a beast face like SRK or Aamir Khan. I think the government should ask people to send their choice and select from them. May be more than one person should represent India as ambadors.

          SRK is a business man and that is why he is not fit to be selected for Incredible India. He wants to make money and that is fine but not ambador of India

                            If his Hindu wife does not find him intolerant and she is practicing her religion and happily married to Shahrukh khan then who are u talk in this matter. U don't even know this man.

                              This world extremely extremely a sad and disappointing place. Reading these comments about king Khan is shocking and at the same time irrational. First of all, King khan has been face of India for so many years around the world. He has Hindu wife. He loves and respect his wife to this date and they are together. How many rich famous actors stay faithful with wife for this many years. He speaks with his hard work and represent inda very well around the world. what u guys do for India? u guys don't have any idea that like me many people love and learn Indian culture through this incredible talent. He is secular has Hindu wife and kids. He does both Islam in and Hindu prayers at home. His religion is humanity. You have no knowledge of what ur talking about. Hatred is in ur voice but he always spread love and peace through his work. None of u guys are that perfect human without flaws get over it please. I'm so sick of hearing such disrespectful comments about a man I respect and adore not only through his hard work and career struggles but also the person he is. With the life he had few ppl can make it to where he made that's not easy, trust me. I hope u do some research about him and his life before u judge him blindly. I hate when ppl blindly follow the crowed instead of using their brain. Shahrukh khan is the man of dignity and integrity. Nothing can change it.

                                Its sad to cone across such negativity you guys have against Shahrukh khan. He worked all his life hard to make a name for India around the globe. Yes whatever he did but ppl around the world including me in US know him as incridable actor of India. Its so disappointing that just one comment and everyone act in such manner disrespecting a great person. This world is a sad place.

                                    Ya he is intalorent that's why he has Hindu wife and his Hindu kids. He celebrate divali and holly at home and he does Hindu prayers with his family and kids. You guys are so close minded and ignorant that u don't even think before you speak. First learn about him and his family his activities and his hobbies then judge. Based on one comment you guys made a decision of categorizing him. Your neither god and nor the perfect human you think you are. Blindly hating and accusing a humble, kind and respected person shows our ugly mind and heart. He is a person with dignity and integrity. Just because he is secular u can't and don't have the right to judge
