Not cool to abuse or deride other films and colleagues: Shah Rukh Khan

Not cool to abuse or deride other films and colleagues: Shah Rukh Khan

The actor is upset with fans who are abusive towards other members of the Bollywood fraternity
Updated 24 Jan, 2017

Oh boy! Shah Rukh Khan's a tad miffed at fans, whose tendency to troll celebrities sometimes gets out of hand. He recently took to Twitter to express his displeasure about abusive remarks about other Bollywood celebrities and their films.

The reigning Khan of B-town, Shah Rukh said on Twitter that although social media allows for freedom of speech, it wasn't acceptable to bash Bollywood actors and their films.

But it seems that his views didn't go down well with his fans. The actor soon posted another tweet saying that he wasn't there to teach manners, hinting at those who have no qualms about openly being abusive:

Setting an example for how Twitter can be positively used, the actor showed his full support toward badminton player Saina Nehwal who said that she wanted to be the SRK of badminton. The actor in turn said that he wanted to be the Saina Nehwal of B-town!

Even though SRK said he wasn't there to teach anyone manners, he is setting a good example for people who want to learn from him!

Khans brought a lot of professionalism and finesse to Bollywood... which was erstwhile missing...

Some Indian fans get extremely emotional about their stars. If a Salman film is being released, Shah Rukh's fans create a firestorm on social media, and vice versa. Not all fans are like this, but there are many who behave like complete idiots. Its good that both Salman and SRK are speaking out about this online abuse. Its worse down South. If a Rajnikanth film is releasing, its like mass hysteria on the roads. I was in Chennai when Robot was being released. It was sheer madness on the road - like Diwali, Eid, Holi and all Indina festivals being celebrated on a single day.

SRK is right. With freedom comes respect for others, as well as healthy criticism and NOT to project personal dislikes and/or being obnoxious.

Totally 100% agree with SRK. It is NOT cool to degrade others, you never know you may be the next in line for degrade. SRK rocks.

Any day I prefer Hrithik Roshan.So bored of seeing Khans again and again in the media as if there is a dearth of talents.
