New Delhi: Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who recently appeared as a guest on reality show 'Dance India Dance', shared details about a conversation he had with daughter Suhana when she asked about their religion and his response has bowled over Twitter. In a video clip going viral from the show, SRK said that he has taught his children - Aryan, Suhana and AbRam - that they are 'Hindustan' and that's their only religion.
The 54-year-old actor said, "Humne kabhi Hindu-Musalman ki baat hi nahi ki. Meri biwi Hindu hain, main Musalman hu aur mere jo bachche hai woh Hindustan hain. Genuine baat hai ye (We have never spoken about being a Hindu or a Muslim. My wife is Hindu and I'm Muslim and my children are Hindustan. It's a genuine fact)."
Revealing details about his and Suhana's conversation, he added, "Kai baar school main woh bharna padta hai ki religion kya hai. Jab meri beti chhoti thi toh usne aake pucha bhi mujhse ek baar ki 'papa hum kaunse religion ke hai?' Toh maine usme ye likha ki hum Indian hi hain yaar. Koi religion nahi hai. Aur hona bhi nahi chahiye. (In school, we have to fill in the religion section. My daughter asked me once 'Papa, what is our religion?' and I wrote we are Indian, we have no religion and shouldn't have one either)."
