  1. His oratory skills also made him an international star something what likes of Salman/Aamir lack, the Only Indian Movie star i love to listen, very knowledgeable with wits and humors in between

  2. I, being a muslim and so are you expected to open your salutation with Islamic way by uttering "Assalamu alaiqum". Then, you could throw other ways of salutations like "Namaskar/Adab" in Hindi or "Good evening" in English. Dear Shah Rukh, your sky-high fame as a film actor has made you blind about Islam. I understand, maybe, you were afraid that your lslam-loving attitude might hinder your journey towards being present-day Shah Rukh Khan. please keep in mind Hindus or Christians alone are not your fans; Muslims love you, watch your movies, take pride in you as well.
