Shah Rukh Khan’s opinions on things are intelligent and makes you think deeply for a moment. The man is a superstar, but sadly, all of it comes with a price!
Recently, his daughter’s, Suhana’s bikini pictures had gone viral. Publications had headlines along the lines of “Suhana flaunts her bikini body”.
The doting father that SRK is, one would believe that it must have been disturbing for him. Dousing the flames around that incident, SRK hit back.
Here’s what he said:
SRK’s daughter flaunts her body.” Is it a little cheap? Maybe I felt it was.
I reached out nicely and said, dude, your website is not going to run on my daughter’s bikini body, can you please take it out? People saw where I was coming from.
In today’s times, publications earn money through cheap headlines like these, without realizing the repercussions it leaves on the readers, and most importantly the person it is targetted to.
Continuing on that note, SRK said:
MY DAUGHTER WAS A LITTLE AWKWARD ABOUT IT. SHE’S 16, YAAR. AND THE HEADLINES SOME SITES USE ARE… WOW. WE’RE VERY LIBERAL PEOPLE AND EVEN HAD A LAUGH ABOUT IT. BUT IT’S STILL AWKWARD.
Talking along the same lines, the superstar made a point – the price one has to pay for stardom.
He said, “When my daughter’s pictures were splashed everywhere online and when I jumped to get it contained, I wasn’t protecting her from the media — I was protecting her from me. It’s my stardom that was the reason that picture made it to the news — it wouldn’t have if she wasn’t SRK’s daughter. There could be someone running naked and that wouldn’t be news”.
Well, like always, he has spoken the truth.
But, being oblivious to things like these, we are only lending a helping hand. As far as media is concerned, they need to have a certain regard for someone’s feelings and think at least once before posting stuff like this, as it can have insane repercussions.
