Salman Khan may have embraced Shah Rukh Khan on the latter’s birthday on November 2. But he won’t speak up on the issue of Shah Rukh’s run-in with radicals regarding the growing intolerance in the country.
When asked to comment on the issue Salman Khan shrugged and said the platform to comment on the issue was not right.
Sources close to Salman say he has been advised to steer clear of all political comment.
A close friend of the superstar reveals that Salman is angry and upset over the way Shah Rukh was targeted by radical elements.
“But he can’t speak because of his pending legal cases. These cases are weighing him down and taking away from his happiness and his freedom to speak his mind. The lawyers have advised him to steer clear of all political comment. So if Salman Khan is not speaking up it is not because he is a fence-sitter like another Khan superstar who likes to sheds tears only when there is a camera watching. Salman needs to maintain peace for the sake of his parents who can’t bear the thought of the legal repercussions that may be waiting for their son,” says the star’s buddy.
