Mumbai: Actor Shah Rukh Khan faced severe criticisms for celebrating Hindu festival Ganesh Chaturthi with his family as he is a Muslim.
The actor on Sunday posted a monochromatic photo of him with a teeka on his forehead on Instagram with a caption that read, ” Prayers and visarjan done… This #GaneshChaturthi, may Lord Ganesha bestow upon you and your loved ones, blessings and happiness… Ganpati Bappa Morya!”
The post had many hateful messages questioning his faith while some commenters countered it saying, “He celebrates all festivals, he is a true Indian.”
The 54-year-old actor is married to Gauri Khan who is a Hindu and they with their three children Aryan, Suhana and AbRam celebrate all festivals including Diwali, Eid and Holi. And this is not the first time that Khan celebrated Ganesh Chaturthi.
