BOOM found that the statement had been made from a fake Twitter handle. Shah Rukh Khan had refuted the claim in 2014.

(Original Text in Hindi: यदि मोदी प्रधानमंत्री बने तो मैं सिर्फ़ ट्वीटर ही नहीं बल्कि देश भी छोड़ दूँगा -शाहरुख़ खान)

Fact

BOOM has debunked the viral claim earlier and found that the statement had been made from a fake Twitter handle - @jamsrk - being operated in the name of Shahrukh Khan.
