                Modi is a political person who had every right to criticize the govt of the day for its policies.SRK is NOT. And he can Also voice his opinion abt the wrongs ..but can't say India is Intolerant.. And he clearly meant religiously intolerant.if we were an intolerant country HE would not be a superstar in INDIA. Like him, worship him no problem but don't do it blindly

                            Dilwale. Second best grosser in gulf, Screens extended in Germany on public demand, still going houseful in trinidad, 7 days more extended in Austria on public demand. Looks like Dilwale is doing really well all over the world except in India. just one statement and haters get too emotional and sentimental. Looks like there is really lot of intolerance here.

                              No need to give any gyan. you need to be informed thats all. All big Islamic insutions have given fatwas against extremist views on Islam. they banned it as anti Islamic. Where Army jawans who are hindus are cheating India for money, nothing is said about them. We muslims live in India peacefully, we love this country even though we have to listen to the rants of people like u everyday. Because Muslims in India are not extremists, we are living peacefully. look at Syria and India.

                                To all the muslim haters here: What do you have to say about the Hindu intellectuals and writers who actually started the "Intolerance" issue while protesting against the killings of writers by right wing fanatics? Will you call these hindu intellectuals as anti-nationals? will you ask them to go to stan? stop ur blind hate campaign man. clean ur mind.

                                  Where will you send the writers and intellectuals who are protesting against intolerance? those hindu people who actually started the intolerance debate in the first place? where should they go? come out of ur blind hatred man. Criticizing an issue in the country is not unpatriotic. if that is the case then ramdev and modi are also unpatriotic because they told the entire world that india is corrrupt.

                                      lol the box office results shown in box office capsule come from ticket returns. not from Red chillies. lol if giving numbers from production houses was to be trusted, every movie would be a 300 crore movie lol

                                        looks like you dont know history. Extreme form of religion is terrorism. extreme form of patriotism is fascism. Fascism starts when one set of people think they are more patriotic than others and any form of dissent against them is considered anti-national. go study history. this is how fascism starts.

                                          joke of the millinium. Dilwale is still far ahead of Bajirao mastani in worldwide market. Just criticizing current issue in the country is not anti national. if that is the case the modi and ramdev are biggest antinationals because they time and again said India is corrupt. and all those writers protesting for the killings of writers are also traitors. dont become fascist. come back to ur senses. Moreover this is nothing new to SRK. He always comes back. No one can dethrone him. dream on

                                            Only fools compare SRK with other actors. He is brilliant , unique and unstoppable. After a long gap we got a romantic hero after Rajesh khanna.
