His actions were wise and whatever he did was justified, say Shah Rukh Khan's friends and colleagues from the film industry after the superstar was banned from the Wankhede Stadium for five years following a scuffle with the security guards.
Shah Rukh, co-owner of Indian Premier League (IPL) team Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), had allegedly misbehaved with security personnel and MCA officials Wednesday night. The actor said that he lost his cool when he saw MCA officials manhandling his daughter.
B-town took Twitter to share their thoughts. This is what they have to say:
Anurag Basu: SRK's behaviour is completely justified, I'd have smashed their heads if it was my daughter.
Ronit Roy: I've got first hand reports of the fracas with@iamsrk. His daughter was touched and shoved. He protected. Well done Dad!! At Wankhede, SRK was a father, not just an actor... Please don't expect a father to apologise for protecting his baby.. Satyamev Jayate.
Karan Johar: SRK is one of the best fathers i know...and protective about every child...he was being just that...a protective parent!!! Why blame a man who was just reacting as a father...who wouldn't have done the same in his place???
Celina Jaitly: Speaking even as a new mother of twins, when it comes to one's children a parent will go to any length to protect them, SRK is a good dad. When it comes to my children i would go to any lengths to protect them , he was being a dad at that moment ..are stars not human?
