BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya had hit out at Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan over his “extreme intolerance” comment, saying his “soul” is in Pakistan though he lives in India.
He later retracted his statements on the Bollywood superstar.
Hema Malini speaking at an event here said that the actor was targeted by the party for no reason.
“Shah Rukh has not said that he is going to return the award or anything. I feel that he has been targeted. I personally feel that it is not right”, Malini said.
“He is an actor from our country; he has brought good name to the country; he has been liked by millions of people all over the world. We are proud of him,” she added.
