Refusing to give his side of what happened during Sunday night’s altercation, Shah Rukh Khan on Wednesday said he did not want to give “two versions” of the incident.
The 46-year-old actor made the comments on the margins of a function a day after the patch up with Shirish Kunder, husband of director Farah Khan. Kunder had accused SRK of slapping him at the party hosted by Sanjay Dutt. “My children think of her as Farah aunty and it has been difficult for them to understand this whole issue. I do not want to give two versions of the incident. This is an entirely personal issue. My children will get confused if they hear one thing from me inside the house and another thing in public. That is why I don’t comment on my personal life,” the actor said.
It is for the first time that SRK, who kept mum as the incident snowballed into a major controversy two days back, has spoken about it in public. “It is very embarrassing for me to talk about this incident in front of my children. My son is 14 and girl is 11 and half years. It is difficult to explain it in the family,” he said.
Farah and Shah Rukh, whose friendship had soured few years ago, also sorted out their issues at the patch up meet initiated by director Sajid Khan. “Farah is a very old friend. A lot about us has been written in the past two years. It has been very difficult for me to sit with that. It is nice to have friends back home. I am happy about it,” SRK said. “Outsiders think that whatever people in Bollywood do is fun, even if it is personal,” he added.
