New Delhi, Nov 3 (IBNS): Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Sadhvi Prachi has triggered a controversy as she hit out at Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan for his remarks on 'intolerance' and called him a 'Pakistani agent'.

She was quoted as saying to media that Khan has committed 'treason' by talking about returning awards and should be 'punished' for his comments.

Meanwhile, filmmaker Aparna Sen came out in support of Khan and said people like Sadhvi Prachi want to break the country apart.

She said legal action should be taken against the VHP leader.

"Can't believe Sadhvi's reaction to SRK on tv! They're ones who want to break the country apart! There should be legal action against her!" Sen tweeted.

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who turned 50 on Monday, called 'intolerance of any kind' as the worst thing faced by the society.

"Religious intolerance, or intolerance of any kind, is the worst thing. Indians lose face over the questions that are asked," Khan told NDTV.

Several recipients of awards given by the Centre returned their awards in recent times.

Speaking on the issue, Khan told the news channel: "I think it's very brave of those returning their awards. I am on their side. If they tell me to join them on a march or a press conference, I would...Personally, it's too much of symbolism to return my awards. Just returning something, I am not a believer in that."
