SRK Wishes Freedom for Women on I-Day

Mumbai, Aug 16 (PTI): Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan has wished freedom for women in the country on the occasion of the 66th Independence Day on Wednesday.

"Freedom to me means to have own thoughts and belief. From the world of news I hear every day about women not being treated properly. I want women to be

free and given equal opportunity like men, even in terms of education," Shahrukh told reporters in Mumbai on Tuesday evening at an event.
"I think people should start thinking big...women should be given more freedom without harming the culture and ideologies. I wish a happy and free life for women," the actor said.

Talking about being secular, Shahrukh said, "India is the most diverse country so I feel it should be free from non-secular thoughts. I want people to have a secular approach."

"Also I wish the country should prosper in sports, economy and every other aspect," he added.

Meanwhile, when asked to comment on friend-turned-foe Salman Khan's most talked about film Ek Tha Tiger, Shahrukh seemed a little irritated. "I wish the film all the best," he said adding that "are you happy and satisfied now with my answer?"
