Rehman Malik has created controversy when he requested the Indian Government to provide security to Shah Rukh Khan.

Talking to reporters at a reception organized by Indian High Commissioner Sharat Sabharwal to mark Republic Day, Malik said that Shah Rukh was born Indian and he would like to remain the same.

Malik said: "He (Shah Rukh) is born Indian and he would like to remain Indian, but I will request the government of India (to) please provide him security. I would like to request all Indian brothers and sisters and all those who are talking in a negative way about Shah Rukh, they should know he is a movie star.

"I am sure all those who are talking against him or are trying to threaten him, they will withdraw their threat with this hope that the stars are loved, the stars provide love and they are like a symbol of unity." (ANI)
