Urmila Matondkar REACTS to Shah Rukh Khan being bashed over spitting controversy at Lata Mangeshkar’s funeral
Shah Rukh Khan found himself in the middle of a controversy after he attended the funeral of Lata Mangeshkar. SRK was seen with his manager when he read a dua for the mortal remains of Lata Mangeshkar when he was trolled for spitting on the body. But he was in fact blowing air which is a ritual of the dua in Muslims. Many came to the defence of Shah Rukh Khan and one of them was Urmila Matondkar who said ‘Politics has reached such low levels’
The state in charge of BJP Haryana, Arun Yadav had shared a tweet on his Twitter which showed a video of SRK reading his dua, the tweet read, “Kya isne thuka hai (Did he spit)?”

Reacting to the news, Urmila told India Today, “As a society, we have deteriorated so much that we think praying is spitting. You are talking about an actor who has represented the country on various international platforms. Politics has reached such low levels and it’s really sad.”
Meanwhile, many fans came to the defence of SRK in the tweets.
Srk did not spit, he blew to ward off evil for Lataji as per his religion & if people read more like I did, they would understand. As for can Hindus pray at funeral of someone from a Muslim faith, then the answer is Yes.
Because, I have & no one had a problem with it.
