SRK's liberal India
Shah Rukh Khan speaks out in favour of the government ban on smoking in films. He says:
Actually, the more liberal a society becomes, the more stringent the laws are bound to be. In the US, you can buy a gun off the shelf, and then someone starts shooting down kids in a school. So they need strict laws to make guns accessible to people. With air travel being so easy now -- you can book tickets by e-mail -- airport security is tougher. In a banana republic, nothing is allowed. In our society, everything is allowed. Therefore we need to check the flow of liberal ideas.Sigh. It would take a constipated bull, eating continuously, an entire week to build up reserves of this much you-know-what. And this guy is one of India's biggest role models. I tell you.
