So why do women like Shahrukh Khan?

Thanks for linking this post Blogbharti!! Blog Bharti

Amongst a million zillion other reasons…

In an interview with Simi Garewal she asks him. (Writing from memory, there are sure to be many errors).

You are sensitive. You respect women. You love your wife! You understand how women feel (etc) … do you think that makes you a little like a woman in some ways? …Effeminate? ”

I have no doubts that even the coolest JKGs would have been unhappy to hear this last line. We know what this question can imply. And how it can label a man in India!

(If a man is described as a woman it means, he is weak, he gossips, he quarrels, he has no muscles, he is a bad driver, he loves to make gajar ka halwa for his spouse, women do not think he is attractive, he pouts if he does not get enough attention from his spouse, he puts his family before his career, he cries easily… etc ).

So what does Shahrukh Khan say? He couldn’t possibly have started a tirade against stereotypes, (which would have been great, though!), so he takes a short cut. He gets his famous look on his face and says,

“.… to be compared to a woman is an honor. I have a lot of a woman in me.

There was more and it got Simi Garewal her famous ‘awww’ look on her face.

Simi Garewal like many of us believes that Mamta Banerji, Kiran Bedi, my maid who dragged her neighbour off the water tanker with his hair, my other maid who has been thrown out of her house, Mayawati, my grandmother who read Ramayana every morning, Sushma Swaraj, Sonia Gandhi, Pooja Chopra’s mother can all be described very simply in one word, ‘sensitive’. And if a man is sensitive he is being ‘like a woman’.

Most people are wary of labels, because labels put an official stamp on stereotypes, but in India the biggest insult for a man is to tell him he is like a woman. Shahrukh Khan made a compliment of it. Here’s a man who shamelessly flaunts his sensitivity. Dares to show he cares. Loves his family, loves even the daughter. What’s amazing, he talks about his wife with ease, how they met, how they fell in love, and since he is sincere he epitomizes the kind of guy many Indian girls can take home to their mothers.

So how can I object to his using my blog name for a book on his life?

Edited To Add: The book is called “The Life and Times Of Shah Rukh Khan”  😉

Solilo sent me this picture 😉 Thank You Solilo, I know it must have been hard sharing an SRK pic!

    I cant stand the man so here is my take on it. That statement “I have a lot of a woman in me” was supposed to be – “I have been in a lot of women”. Kidding. But take what he says with a pinch of salt…he is an actor after all.

  11. ahhh. very well said indeed….i think i had watched that show.

    i have immense respect for SRK coz i have seen him from his “Fauji” days to DDLJ…without godfathers in the industry. he has sweat it out, played street-smart, but worked hard too. u can trace his evolution in all departments – right from looks to acting to popularity to quality of directors (he’s somehow managed to be with the best most of the times! 🙂 )

    he’s come a long way, and that to me is commendable!

    also as mandy said, the way he leads his family life.

    so many rumors / facts (?) of him associated to Karan Johar, being gay, being a bi-sexual, i fail to understand how his sexual preference can take away from him his years of hard earned success??
    or respect n love in ppl’s hearts? 😐

    many come n tell me that Kishore Kumar was not a “good” person and he illtreated his wives, etc…

    to me, Kishore is a voice who touches me deep in my heart, so much that he’s sacred in all walks of life, whatever be my mood. He evokes pain, joy, humor, laughter, and introspection. he’s a part of my life, everyday. he’s made it better. all this without an ounce of formal training in music. to me that is genius. he’s my god of emotions. would it be fair to take that away on basis of personal life?? after all, he’s not my role model….i don’t aspire to be him…

    but with srk being a public figure, he sure is role model and much more to many. this is why i have lost a bit of patience with him when i’v seen him smoke in public, propogate about how he loves his aerated drinks and doesn’t care about consequences, been arrogant with a fan on stage…

    i may not be blindly in love like i was in school with him (had a pic in my wallet !!! ) i may not rave that he is the best human alive…

    i don’t find him worth my money anymore 😦

    but his respect is well earned. it will always remain.. 🙂

    I agree Crafty Shines, his respect is well earned… 🙂

  29. Ah and here is the perspective of someone who, until about two years ago, thought SRK was just a bad boy who smoked in public! 😉

    I read a lot of comments about SRK’s acting abilities and while I tend to like Amir Khan as an actor just a little bit more than SRK, I do have to say that SRK IS a good actor. His ability to be quirky, dorky, charming, super cool, super jerk, or just plain everyday guy is what makes him a good actor. Most actor’s wouldn’t want to even try pulling off being quirky or dorky. Those kind of actors don’t always garner that much respect. But I have more respect for them than I do serious actors. It’s not everyone that can make a person sincerely laugh.

    My first experience with SRK was in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and while it was some time ago…I remember thinking that he was a good young actor that had a ways to go. Then Dewaana and I enjoyed seeing him take the absolute obsession for the Heroine to such extremes. I saw him in a few others that are a haze of Hindi watching but at the time I was such a Amir Khan enthusiast, that I didn’t pay too much attention. Finally, I watched Om Shanti Om and was enchanted. He is so many things in that movie, charming, dashing, heartbroken, quirky, dorky, silly, heroic, cool, and macho. I loved watching this only because of the force of the character that SRK was breathing into life before me.

    Ok Ok Ok the whole “music video” with water and his bulging chest muscles were ok to watch too. 🙂

  31. Oops…my copy and paste didn’t work so well…here is the end portion of what I wanted to say….

    I believe the same carries over into his personal life…or vice versa. Here is a Muslim man who married a Hindu lady and they both respect and worship their own faith…teaching their children both. He is obviously a man who is not afraid to be who he is, love whom he wants and live his life as he believes is best.

    Being sensitive is a gift. What are you worth if you are insensitive towards another human? I think Simi’s question was stupid and the answer was like a slap.

    Absolutely Amit! You said it! I was also taken aback by the question. I have no idea what she meant to ask by that remark, but SRK handled it really well. And seeing how many people remember that old interview shows he was successful in turning the question to his advantage.

    • Well, first I must tell you that I discovered Bollywood and SRK last spring. Till then, the only Indian films I had seen were S. Ray’s, a long time ago and Mother India, which I had found too melodramatic. In my country, no Indian films are ever screened, we are totally devoted to Hollywood and European cinema…
      The first films I happened to watch were Fanaa and D.T.P.H. They fascinated me in different ways but the scripts lacked something. I liked Madhuri and Kajol very much, Aamir, too but SRK was something else … So I googled and googled, read about Bollywood cinema, its cliches etc started watching films on Youtube, ordering dvds at Amazon, reading books on India, the latter I had been doing as a uni. student but stopped later. So, after the “cultural shock” of these past months, I declare myself first as an admirer of India, its history and culture and second as an ardent fan of SRK. His acting in many films reminds me of Gary Grant’s. Of course, George Clouney is considered as his successor, but think of SRK in most of his films. Intelligent, charming, the knight every woman would like at her side, always present and caring, sometimes sarcastic and ironical, but mostly tender and caring. There is the other SRK, too, of Chak De and Swades, for me his best performances, followed by D.D.L.J., K.H.K.N., Dil Se, Devdas and K. Johar’ s films, K.A.N.K. especially. I suppose his personality helps him a lot, but he is good, he can play. Even in Paheli, a fairytale I like immensely, he supports both roles wonderfully, of course, I am for the ghost…Watching the trailers of My Name is Khan, I think I find the real actor, who can be versatile and really act.
      A friend of mine spent two weeks in Delhi, last December. She told me about SRK’s presence in TV and on the billboards. Maybe his will to succeed in many fields, earn as much money as possible etc doesn’t permit him to devote himself to art, but this is unfortunately the problem of out times . On the other hand, as far as I can see with my limited access to a far away country, talking to the media, Shah Rukh Khan is sincere about his aims, his beliefs, his loves and friendships, his ambitions. He knows how to communicate with the fans, the TV watchers, the Interntet users, the journalists. It seems that he has the courage, the strength, the heart and the brains to work hard and take advantage of any given opportunity. But he has got talent, too. In one word, unique, he is.
      Long and tiring text, I could write much more, but I have to think of you, reading, too.
      P.S. I wonder why he has not played in any G. Chada’s, M. Nair’s, or D. Mehta’s films.
      So, good night. Hope to be in touch again… in the future…

      Me – You are as much an SRK fan as so many of us are 🙂 I think he deserves it 🙂 What he says, how he treats his wife and women in general is followed by Indian men and he is the first one on our industry to talk with affection and pride about his wife 🙂 Thanks for this lovely, informative comment!! You have seen some of his movies which I have missed, and I have to say Sonia you know more about him as as actor 🙂

  50. I came across this blog today by sheer chance. Please add me to the list of SRK’s fan base.I also am totally floored by his quick wit, his sense of humor and his total devotion to his wife and family. He and my SIL went to the same college in Delhi (Hansraj) where he was an economics(Hons) major and she remembers how girls used to ogle him because of his charm but always kept a distance because of his love for Gauri. She says that he was even, in those days a perfect gentlemen opening doors for her etc.,.I also dont care about his sexual preferences. I would say lucky for Karan.
