I am an Indian at heart, declares Shah Rukh Khan
Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, whose patriotic films ‘Swades’ and ‘Chak De’ have been widely lauded, never refrains from expressing his sentiments for the country in real-life also. The sharp-witted ‘Baazigar’ Khan has been lying low for quite sometime now as compared to the other two Khans (Aamir and Salman) in terms of work but he is very active on social networking sites like Twitter. His recent Twitter post underscores his nationalistic thoughts.
Describing his nationality, Shah Rukh tweeted: "I am half Hyderabadi (mom) half Pathan (Dad), some Kashmiri (grandmom). Born in Delhi, live in Mumbai. Have a Punjabi wife and own Kolkata (India Premier League) team. Indian at heart (sic)."
"Flew into Ramoji Rao in Hyderabad... last I shot here was `Badshaah`, some 12 years ago... time flies... and how nice to be here," he posted.
The 44-year-old actor is currently shooting in Hyderabad and feels nostalgic with his visit to the city after 12 years.
Shiv Sena had hit out at the actor, who is also the co-owner of IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders, for his comments on Pakistani cricketers.
