Salman Khan is nowadays busy promoting his upcoming film Tubelight. The film is reportedly set against the backdrop of 1962 India-China war. In one of the promotional interactions, Salman Khan maintained that the Kabir Khan directed flick is not based on war but highlights how families are affected on both sides of the war. “So, it’s basically that whenever there is a war both the sides get hurt. Families lose their sons, brothers, fathers. They have to spend entire life without them…” he said.

His brother Sohail Khan who plays an army officer in the film, added that war is never the solution to any problem, it rather creates negativity but the irony is it is used everywhere in the world as an answer to the problems. “Everyone will say it is a bad decision…But it happens a lot, nobody knows why. Things can only be solved by sitting across the table.”

Then Salman Khan spoke his mind rather bluntly. He said, if people who order war are sent on borders, they will realise the seriousness and negativity of it and will then come back to the path of discussion and dialogue “People who order war should be asked to go on war themselves. Take this gun and go to war. And it will get over in a day. They will tremble and shake and they will eventually take the route of dialogues and discussions.”

Shah Rukh Khan was at it again- at his wittiest. After charming his audience and fans world over with his TED Talk, he conducted Ask Me Anything (AMA) session on Twitter after almost a year and he was at his charming best.

It was on Tuesday only that the Forbes list of a hundred highest paid entertainers included his name at the 65th place much above Salman and Akshay. So, it turned out to be his lucky day. When asked about which industry he would prefer- Hollywood or Bollywood, he promptly asked- Are you selling (any one of them)?

When a fan asked playfully how he would feel if he could be invisible, he quipped that he worked hard for 25 years to be visible, he would not like to be invisible.

If he meets a genie, who would grant him three wishes what would SRK ask for? To this he very poignantly replied- peace, love and kindness, but then immediately made fun of his own comment.

Someone requested him to quote some Urdu Poetry, which was an entirely out of place request, he immediately retorted- Shall I deliver a pizza too at your home!

After Yale University lecture, TED Talk and many such interesting interviews, he proved once again, his films may fail, but King Khan’s wit will never.
