Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh’s had criticised Shahrukh Khan’s reaction to his detention in US claiming SRK had blown it out of proportion. He said that Shahrukh was doing this to promote his upcoming movie My Name Is Khan. He added that it former President Abdul Kalam hadn’t complained about the treatment meted out him in India why was Shahrukh making a big issue out of it.
When quizzed about Singh’s comments during a press conference, King Khan sarcastically said that he thought Amar Singh was unwell and taking treatment in Singapore. Adding more to his sarcasm SRK asked if Singh was back in Mumbai and in a physical condition to make such statements. He stressed on the fact that SRK and My Name Is Khan need no cheap publicity. He added that he wished Singh recovers soon with a healthy body and a strong mind
Shahrukh and Amar Singh’s tu tu mein mein goes a long way back. Shahrukh had made fun of him during an award function some years back which hadn’t gone down well too well with the UP strongman. Amar Singh’s closeness with the Bachchan family means Shahrukh always has to be in his firing line. Well a politician even in a hospital doesn’t refrain himself from making controversial statements.
