Mumbai: Megastar Shah Rukh Khan on Sunday shared Diwali wish with his fans. The actor along with the message posted a family picture featuring wife Gauri Khan and son AbRam.

Going by the snap, they seem to have celebrated the festivals of light in a religious way. All three of them can be seen adorning a ‘tika’ in the monochromatic picture that Shah Rukh Khan posted taking to twitter. “#HappyDiwali to everyone. May your lives be lit up and happy,” he wrote alongside the photo.

Reacting to the post, a few netizens trolled him. One of them termed him ‘munafiq’ and said, “Eid bhee wish krdia kro munafiq”.  

Although Shah Rukh Khan decided to ignore such persons, Ms. Shabana Azmi defended the actor and tweeted, ” Appalled to read that @iamsrk Diwali greeting invites wrath of rabid Islamists, gets called a “False Muslim” for sporting a tilak!”FUNDOS get a life! Islam is not so weak that it stands threatened by what is a beautiful Indian custom.Indias beauty is in her GangaJamuni tehzeeb”.
