Assam CM has now given clarification on this whole conversation again. Himanta Biswa Sarma has said that Shahrukh Khan first introduced himself to him by sending a message and said that he wanted to talk to him.
Assam CM said that he was busy when the message came to him, later at 2 in the night he spoke to Shahrukh Khan.
Let us tell you that Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma had tweeted on Sunday that Bollywood actor Shahrukh Khan called me and we both had a talk. According to the Assam CM, during this conversation, Shahrukh Khan expressed concern about the protests during the screening of his film Pathan in Guwahati. The Assam CM said that he assured Shahrukh Khan that maintaining law and order is the responsibility of the state government. We will look into the matter and ensure that no untoward incident takes place.
This statement of the Assam CM came in the headlines because a day earlier during a press conference he had said that he does not know Shahrukh Khan. Even after being repeatedly asked by journalists, Himanta had said that he does not know Shahrukh nor does he know about his film Pathan.
Controversy related to the film Pathan
Earlier on Friday, some people of Bajrang Dal shouted slogans outside a hall in Guwahati and burnt posters of the film Pathan. When asked a question related to this, CM Himanta had said that he does not know Shahrukh. Although Himanta had said that actor Shah Rukh Khan has not called me, but many Bollywood people have called him in case of any problem. Himanta had said that if Shahrukh calls him, he will look into the matter seriously.
After this actor Shah Rukh Khan called him.
On answering Shahrukh Khan’s call, many people had asked CM Himanta that just a few hours ago he was saying that he did not know Shahrukh, then how was he talking to him at 2 o’clock in the night.
I know the stars of my era, not Shah Rukh
CM Himanta Biswa Sarma answered this question on Monday. Apart from this, he also clarified about not knowing about Shahrukh Khan. Himanta Biswa Sarma said, “I know the stars of my era, I don’t know about Shahrukh.”
Shahrukh introduced by sending a message
Regarding the call at 2 o’clock in the night, Himanta Biswa Sarma said that he sent me a message and introduced himself and said – “I am Shahrukh Khan and want to talk to you.” Himanta Biswa Sarma said that I did not have time at that time. That’s why later at 2 o’clock in the night we both talked and I told him that there will be no problem in Assam regarding Pathan cinema. CM Himanta did not tell when Shahrukh’s message came to him.
Please tell that Pathan movie is going to release on 25th January. Many Hindu organizations are opposing this film. In this sense, the state government is giving security to the cinema hall.
