Ever since the Shiv Sena’s battle with actor Shah Rukh Khan started, Bollywood has come under the scanner for keeping unceremoniously mum on the issue. As if to refute that accusation, big names from the film industry have now started coming forward in support of SRK, whose film

My Name Is Khan

is in trouble.

While actor Salman Khan was quoted as saying, “Shah Rukh doesn’t owe an apology to Shiv Sena,” actor Abhishek Bachchan posted on

Actor Kunal Kapoor tweeted, “I’m glad SRK has not given in to unreasonable arm twisting and stood by what he said. My respect for him has grown.” Actress Gul Panag wrote, “SRK has the right to freedom of expression — guaranteed by our Constitution.”

Actress Sophie Choudry posted, “We all luv u and we are all with u (sic).” Actor Farhan Akhtar suggested, “The best way to show support for


and cock a snoot at the madness is go watch it fearlessly.” Said actress Bipasha Basu, “We are all behind him and he has got love and support of zillions of people.”
