The security personnel were increased at Indian actor Shahrukh Khan’s house ‘Mannat’ in Mumbai on Thursday after his controversial and unnecessary statement on ‘Intolerance’ in India.

25 police were added to the safety of his house which was already guarded by 50 police officers.

Security at his Mumbai residence was tightened in 2010 after the Shiv Sena targeted him after he said that the IPL must have Pakistani cricketers.

But this time, surprisingly, the Shivsena backed him for his comments.

Shahrukh Khan on his 50th birthday on Nov 2, had said in an interview: “Religious intolerance, or intolerance of any kind, is the worst thing and will take us to the dark ages.

“Nobody has more right to live in this country than me, and I am not going to leave. So shut up.”

SRK’s angry tweet came after BJP MP Yogi Adityanath compared him to Pakistani terrorist Hafiz.

Another BJP leader, Kailash Vijayvargiya had tweeted; “Shah Rukh Khan lives in India, but his heart is in Pakistan. His films make crores here, but he finds India intolerant.”

But the BJP leader deleted his tweet after severe criticism from all across India including his party members.
