He is the one who never shies away from any question. But it seems that avatar of Shah Rukh Khan is out of vogue. The new avatar says he won't answer any question on political and religious matters.

"Unfortunately because of the reactions I get when I answer something political or religious, I don't think I will answer this question," Khan told reporters here when asked to comment on cancellation of Pakistani ghazal maestro Ghulam Ali's concert in Mumbai.

Ali is scheduled to perform in Kolkata and Kerala.

Khan had earlier said there is "extreme intolerance" in India, creating a furore. He had later apologised.

He had said the controversy also affected the collections of his latest film 'Dilwale'.

During a programme to launch the 'Shades of Bengal' book by Nerolac Paints, he also avoided answering the question related to reduction of his security cover by the Mumbai Police.

Khan quipped saying he missed the constables as they used to bring food for him.

"I miss them. Sometimes I give them a call to ask about their well-being. They used to take food for me and we used to eat 'puri' and rice together," he added.
