After SRK's return from US, news were doing the rounds about Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh's strong reaction on Shahrukh Khan's detention, stating that King Khan had unnecessarily blown the matter out of proportion, so it would help him publicize his upcoming film MY NAME IS KHAN.
Singh had also further stated that when former President Abdul Kalam had not complained about his frisking why was SRK making a big hue and cry about it. In reply to that at the press conference held today at Shahrukh's villa Mannat's lawns, Bollywood Baadshah sarcastically said, ''I thought Amar Singhji is unwell. Is he back in Mumbai and has he got better now and making such statement? I think he is in Singapore and still not well and I am praying for his speedy recovery. I hope that he recovers soon with a healthy body and strong mind.''
SRK and Amar Singh's frictions go back a long way. SRK had once sarcastically joked about Amar Singh in his presence at a Film Award function night to which Singh's supporters had created a huge ruckus outside SRK's house Mannat.
At the press conference SRK also further stated that the detention issue wasn't a publicity stunt for MY NAME IS KHAN and he's SRK and doesn't need any publicity.
