New Delhi: Actor Salman Khan said that he always has to explain whenever his colleague Shah Rukh Khan gets involved in a controversy.

Shah Rukh Khan was criticised by BJP leaders Kailash Vijayvargiya and Yogi Adityanath and Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Sadhvi Prachi for his comment on religious intolerance in India.

"Shah Rukh says something and leaves. Then I come into the picture. He says something and then I have to come (and explain)," said Salman.

Salman initially tried to evade the question about the political furore, as he said that he was not "aware" of Shah Rukh's remarks on intolerance.

"We hugged each other, but I don't know what he has said," said Salman, referring to a photograph that Shah Rukh shared after his 50th birthday.(Also Read: Shah Rukh Khan Gets a Sultan-Style Birthday Hug From Salman)
