SRK’s controversial remarks on KBC gets him into trouble
Shahrukh Khan has been hosting the game show Kaun Banega Crorepati since a few weeks now and initially people were excited to see his anchoring skills. During the first few episodes when SRK began to host KBC, there was a rise in the TRP’s, but now it seems there is a dip in the TRP’s for KBC. However the contestants who come on to the show are definitely charmed by SRK. But recently a controversial remark made by Shahrukh on Kaun Banega Crorepati has led to some controversy for him and the producers of the show too.
Recently on an episode of KBC, Shahrukh passed some remarks on Maharishi Balmiki which has angered a few devotees of the Maharishi and since then a few activists from the Bhartiya Balmiki Dharam Samaj have begun to burn effigies of SRK and the director of KBC. The devotees have not taken the remark in good spirit and are now protesting against SRK’s remarks. Some members of this community claim Shahrukh’s remarks are ‘derogatory’ and ‘have also hurt their religious sentiments’. The activists now want a written apology from SRK and the channel.
Shahrukh has replaced Amitabh as the host of KBC and many people keep comparing SRK to Amitabh and are even saying that he has not been able to live up to the image created by Amitabh on the show. However SRK seems content with his performance as host of KBC, he says “I think I am doing good and the reason that I know that I am doing good is because I get to hear it from a lot of people.” Many fans of SRK come on the sets of KBC in the hope that they will be able to catch a glimpse of him. Also many contestants of KBC gift Shahrukh several memorable gifts when they come on to the show.
