Shahrukh Khan: Not a single scene in Chennai Express shows Tamilians in poor light

The Bollywood superstar says there are no jibes against South Indians in his upcoming movie and that he admires them a lot

Amid reports that he is seen taking potshots at South Indians, especially Tamilians, in his forthcoming film Chennai Express, Shahrukh Khan has cleared the air by saying that he admires the Tamil people a lot.

“Because they are immensely talented. They are way ahead in technology and they are ready to work hard. And they are very friendly too,” said the Bollywood Baadshah.

He added, “There is not even a single scene in Chennai Express which will show Tamilians in poor light. How can I do that when I admire them a lot?”

Deepika Padukone is the heroine of the movie, which was shot mostly in Tamil Nadu. Veteran Sathyaraj has played a crucial role in this Rohit Shetty romcom.
