Mumbai: Bollywood badshah Shah Rukh Khan was at his wittiest best when he hosted the Screen Awards 2011, yet, our controversy stricken actor inadvertently made some unsavoury remarks on a few aging Bollywood beauties.

Buzz has it that when Asha Parekh and Zeenat Aman came on the stage, SRK made highly inappropriate remarks on their anatomy, which offended the senior actresses.

However, talking to a daily, Ms Parekh said, “We were not upset at all. We were told before the awards what he was to say and we were happy. There was nothing derogatory in Shah Rukh`s remarks.”

While Zeenat Aman added, “It was all done in good humour and jest. Shah Rukh was telling me to teach Shahid Kapur how to pout. There was no animosity or malice behind his comments -- just clean fun. In life, one should be able to laugh at oneself and not take everything so seriously. There were no personal digs or making fun of anybody.”

Well folks, SRK is safe this time!
