Bollywood actor Shahrukh Khan is known for respecting all religions equally and celebrating all festivals with great joy. He has spoken in interviews many times how he dislikes a narrow-minded and rigid attitude when it comes to religion. He has emphasized it that religion is a totally personal matter and there is no place for any bigotry or prejudicial feelings. He has also given complete liberty to his children regarding religion and the superstar believes that all hatred and divisiveness should be shunned.
Shahrukh Khan said that he has been reading the epic Mahabharata for past one-and-half years.
Mahabharat is the biggest epic in the world. War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy and Iliad and Odyssey by Homer come at second and third places respectively.
After Eid festivity, he told the media that he narrates stories of Mahabharat to his son Abram (it is often said that Abram is a shortened name of Abraham and Ram) the same way that he narrates stories of Islam. He said he hopes his children will also respect all religions equally.
Shahrukh represents Indian ethos of peaceful coexistence and pluralism. He also focused on the need of a good education and said he expects all three of his children to finish graduation first and then think about other options.
