Shah Rukh Khan along with wife Gauri Khan were brutally trolled for dancing at Mukesh Ambani and Nita Ambani's daughter Isha Ambani's sangeet ceremony which took place at the Oberoi Udaivilas hotel in Udaipur on December 9.
People flooded the social media with "Paisa Pheko Tamasha Dekho" comments to troll SRK including a slew of Bollywood actors like Salman Khan, Aamir Khan with wife Kiran Rao, Abhishek Bachchan with mother Jaya, wife Aishwarya and daughter Aaradhya, Karan Johar, Parineeti Chopra, Anil Kapoor and wife Sunita, Boney Kapoor with daughters Janhvi and Khushi, Siddharth Roy Kapur with wife Vidya Balan, John Abraham with wife Priya Runchal, Ronnie Screwvala with wife Zarine, Karisma Kapoor, Varun Dhawan and Karan Tacker who joined the business tycoons at the party.
However, Shah Rukh Khan says he doesn't take criticism received on social media too seriously and feels that there's no need for him to clarify to anybody for what he is doing in his private life.
"I do what I feel like doing and it's made me the person I am. I have never worked for an image. If someone does something mischievous and others are stupid enough to believe this is the asli song, God bless them. We're in the nascent stage of social media and there are many who don't know that such things can be done. There's a need for video literacy not just in India but in the US too," Shah Rukh Khan told Mumbai Mirror in an interview.
He further added, "You can feel bad about it, but you have to accept that social media is a virtual social reality. What I don't get is people trying to be socially relevant by saying you shouldn't say this or that. You have to retain your sense of humour and not take such criticism too seriously. In the end, it's each to their own. If someone gets a kick out of doing this, you have to live with it. I'm not going to reply to a message on it or clarify because I know which song I danced to. And my knowledge is more important than someone else's take. I have a system in place. If I go to a party and there are three groups, one gossiping, a second abusing people and a third discussing films, I'll join the third group. On social media too, I alienate myself from the gossips and gaalis, block trolls, and express myself the way I wish."
