Distinction between men, women `silly`, says Shah Rukh Khan
Mumbai: Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who was seen dancing with a women police officer in Kolkata, Monday said it was not about the uniform but about a lady in a uniform and such distinction between men and women was "silly".
"It`s strange... 4-5 years back, I was shooting for `Veer Zaara`. At that time, I had danced with jawans in uniform. In the 60s and 70s, many actors performed in the border for the jawans to encourage them. For the first time, it`s not about the uniform, it`s about a lady inspector in uniform. This distinction between men and women is rubbish and silly. It should not be even talked about," Shah Rukh said at an event here.
Politicians criticised the woman police officer alongside the Bollywood actor at an event in Kolkata.
Sub-Inspector Sampa Haldar danced to a popular number from Shah Rukh-starrer ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ as a host of top police officers and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee watched from the gallery at ‘Jai Ho’, the Kolkata Police`s annual cultural programme at the Netaji Indoor Stadium Saturday.
