Shahrukh Khan wants to be 'educated' to join politics?

Shahrukh Khan
Mumbai, April 29: Will Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan join politics in near future? Speaking to a daily, the star did not clarify his stand, however, he said, "I can't become a politician all of a sudden. It's a professional field and you have to educate yourself for that."

The daily also quoted him as saying, "I don't I look down on politics. Asking me whether I have thought of entering politics is as good as asking me if I have given a thought to becoming an astronaut."

"It's what I've done all my life. I think I should try and do what I do best, which is also questionable at times. Honestly, I have no inclination towards politics," added Shahrukh.

The star earlier had announced that he would not comment on any "serious issues". He had said, "I'm an actor. You speak to me about my films. You want to speak about serious issues, you get some serious people - not actor and actresses."

Shahrukh was upset after courting unwanted criticism over his article in a magazine where he had expressed what it is like to be a Muslim in post 9/11 world.

Shahrukh faced the heat when his article had become an instrument to trigger political war between Indian and Pakistan. Indian leaders were enraged when Hafiz Saeed and Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik invited Shahrukh to Pakistan and asked Indian government to provide security to the star respectively.

Clarifying his stand on the issue, Shahrukh later issued a press note where he stated, "I would like to tell all those who are offering me unsolicited advice that we in India are extremely safe and happy. We have an amazing democratic, free and secular way of life. In the environs that we live here in my country India, we have no safety issues regarding life or material."
