Shiv Sena might be ethically wrong in protesting against Mr.Khan for his so called Anti-Indian stance but Mr. Shah Rukh Khan is also not innocent et al. The point is Mr.Khan himself is the co-owner of the IPL franchisee and just by giving a miss to the event auction doesn’t really evade him from his own comments. Why Mr.Khan or his co-owners did not buy any Pakistani Cricketer for their IPL team? Why Mr.Khan missed the IPL Auction? Why would Mr.Khan criticize other IPL franchisees when his own franchisee did not buy any Pakistani player?
Ok, let’s try to connect the dots here.
SRK is seriously waiting for a hit movie for long time now. It’s been almost a couple of years since Mr.Khan had any big hit. His market value and brand value was on a decline during these couple of years and the uglier face of tinsel town was pretty much visible when his so called close friends like Farah Khan started parting ways from him. As a result, it became utmost essential this time to turn the grass into gold with the release of “My Name Is Khan”. SRK understood the importance of this movie for his career and planned it accordingly. He decided not to leave even a single stone unturned this time. Hence, he decided to miss the IPL auction so that he can call the shot on all the IPL franchisees after the auction regarding the exclusion of Pakistani cricketers. The picture for Pakistani players was already gloomy because of the tensions between the
India and the , and practically there wasn’t any business sense for picking up the Pakistani cricketers for such a large amount because of the uncertainty of their presence for the complete IPL season. Pakistan
As soon as, the IPL auction was over and the expected happened, SRK saw this as big opportunity to get into the news just before the release of his new movie- My Name Is Khan. Though, he might not have thought that he will be caught by Shiv Sena on the wrong foot but that situation itself turned into a blessing in disguise for him. He became the national subject, “the King Khan of Controversies was all over in news again”, but he got all the very important attention everywhere, thanks to tiff between the Congress and the Shiv Sena that he remained in news for good half a month before the release of his so very important release. Now the release day came and Mr.Khan decided to fly away to
for the premier of his movie instead of giving any further air to the fire of rebellion lit by Shiv Sena. Why would Mr.Khan want more controversy now? After all his purpose was served, the movie already got the perfect hype and marketing, there was no requirement of any such stunts anymore but to play it safe now. So, he fled away to Dubai . Dubai
Wow, such are the great gimmicks we have in our country. These people can do hundreds of advertisements of products of common man but cannot even use a single one at their homes. Hippocrates and self centered great gimmicks of
P.S. I’m sorry if you are a SRK fan but your counter views are invited. I saw “MY NAME IS KHAN” I loved the movie and the message it had, nothing against SRK’s acting skills, he is a great actor but why such publicity stunts?
