Actor Shah Rukh Khan gave out the message of secularism that we all need on the eve of Republic Day, while on a dance reality show on Saturday night. SRK was on the show Dance Plus and he spoke about how being ‘Indian’ is more important at his home than in understanding which religion one belongs to. “We never spoke about being Hindu-Muslim. My wife is Hindu, I am Muslim, my children are Hindustan,” said Shah Rukh Khan on the show.

The star went on to describe an incident where his daughter Suhana had to fill in her religion in a form at school and she asked him which religion they belonged to, and Shah Rukh’s answer to her was “we are all Indians, we do not have a religion”.
