King Khan’s changing image
He was the quintessential loverboy – sometimes Raj, sometimes Rahul, but always wooing his audiences with his to-die-for romeo-like image onscreen and perfect ‘family material’ traits offscreen. But off late, the superstar has been caught in the eye of the storm – sometimes for his brawls, sometimes for beauties and recently, for crossing ‘boundaries’. Media is calling him the latest action (super)hero, off-screen and on-field. Will controversies affect SRK’s popularity and brand image? This week, Bollywood Big Story debates the alleged debacle of the baadshah of B-town.
Javed Akhtar, Writer “The punishment given to SRK is unnecessarily harsh.”
Anurag Kashyap, Filmmaker “Whatever happened was unpleasant, but I wasn’t present there. I’m often misquoted and I know how it feels to be misunderstood.”
Shah Rukh Khan, Actor “It’s fashionable to blame a celebrity’s brawl on alcohol, but I wasn’t drunk at the time of the incident. I know what ‘good public behaviour’ is, and the other guards on the stadium were extremely arrogant and unpleasant.”
