From giving witty answers during Ask SRK sessions to stealing hearts with his remarkable statements during press conferences, King Khan has made a warm space in the hearts of his millions of fans over so many years. There have been several instances where the actor stole our hearts with his one-liners.
And now, another old video of his is doing the rounds where the actor was asked a ‘political’ question and had an on-point response.
Rahul Gandhi, the politician, asked the actor for one piece of advice that he would want to give to all politicians across the world. The actor, who first laughed at the question, dropped his iconic witty answer.
“I’m glad it’s such a simple question. One piece of advice all the politicians will follow and we will have a wonderful country, and look who you asked!”
He went on to say that as an actor, he cheats and lies for a living, but he respects the selfless politicians who run the nation.
“I lie and cheat and do deceit for a living. I’m an actor. I’m all show, nothing concrete inside me. I’d like to say I have a huge amount of respect for the people who run the country, who have it in their hearts to run the country. It’s a very selfless service.”
The actor also shared his advice that one shouldn’t do wrong things like taking bribes. We can all make money by being true to our nation.
“Let’s not take money under the table, you know, let’s not do shady stuff. If we do it right we’re all gonna make money, we’re all gonna be happy, we’ll all be a great and very proud nation.”
He concluded by saying that all politicians should be honest. The audience, including former PM Manmohan Singh, applauded the actor.
“So my advice to all the politicians is, please be as honest as realistically possible.”
The social media users couldn’t help but admire the actor’s response. Take a look:

No other actor in the Indian film industry has this much courage to unmask the bitter truth of politics. Look everyone is enjoying. What a time that was !. I really miss this kind of healthy conversation at this time. @iamsrk @RahulGandhi
