Shahrukh Khan: Anyone who bets or encourages people to fix matches is utterly disgusting… It is haram ka paisa!

The actor reacted to Rajasthan Royals’ owner Raj Kundra’s involvement in betting in the IPL games

Kolkata Knight Riders’ co-owner Shahrukh Khan spoke straight from the heart when he was asked to react to the recent developments in the IPL 2013 (Indian Premier League) betting and spot-fixing case, in which his good friend Shilpa Shetty’s husband and Rajasthan Royals’ co-owner Raj Kundra’s involvement in betting has come to light.

“As a team owner, I don’t appreciate what’s happening. As a proud person and a sports lover, I think if you are on the game, apni film ki ticket black nahin karna chaiye. Hum toh nahi bechenge, kisi aur ko karna hai toh karne de. I think as a team owner one should not indulge in all these practices even if you are a betting person by nature,” said Shahrukh.

Though SRK said that bookies’ claims of Kundra’s involvement needed to be verified, he also admitted in an interview to a daily that the owners are completely aware of the rules and should not misuse them. “If you’re an owner, you’re aware of all the rules and the loopholes and it’s undignified to misuse them.”

The actor also said that he has never been approached by a bookie, and he thinks whatever the enticement, it is after all “haram ka paisa.” “I’m Islamic about a few things. I’ve never taken illegal money or interest, or as we call it haram ka paisa. I have never loaned out money as a business. I am very clear about it. Anyone who bets or encourages people to fix matches whether from Bollywood or anywhere else is utterly disgusting! It’s wrong,” said SRK.Subscribe to me on YouTube
