"Unfortunately because of the reactions I get when I answer something political or religious, I don't think I will answer this question," said Shah Rukh. He also avoided answering the question related to reduction of his security cover by the Mumbai Police and said the controversy also affected the collections of his latest film Dilwale

Following controversies over his comment on intolerance, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan said that he won't answer any questions on political and religious matters.

"Unfortunately because of the reactions I get when I answer something political or religious, I don't think I will answer this question," Shah Rukh told reporters when asked to comment on the cancellation of Pakistani ghazal singer, Ghulam Ali's concert in Mumbai. Ghulam Ali is now scheduled to perform in Kolkata. (Also Read: My Remarks on Intolerance Have Been Misconstrued, Says Shah Rukh Khan)

Shah Rukh had earlier said there is "extreme intolerance" in India, which created furor. He had later apologized for the comments. He said the controversy also affected the collections of his latest film Dilwale.

During a programme to launch the Shades of Bengal book by Nerolac Paints, he also avoided answering the question related to reduction of his security cover by the Mumbai Police.

SRK said he missed the constables as they used to bring food for him. "I miss them. Sometimes I give them a call to ask about their well-being. They used to take food for me and we used to eat 'puri' and rice together," he added.
