Shabana Azmi wants Shahrukh Khan to play second lead in a women-oriented film

The veteran actor, extremely pleased with the superstar’s move to let his leading ladies take first place in the credit list, now wants SRK to play the second lead in a women-centric movie

Shahrukh Khan has always been a ladies’ man, and we mean that in the best way. The actor has repeatedly said that he enjoys the company of his gal pals more. So it was not at all surprising when the superstar committed that henceforth he would make sure that the credit list of his movies had the leading ladies’ names before his name. Shabana Azmi, who has been a strong supporter of women’s rights, and a feminist herself, liked SRK’s gesture so much that she immediately took to Twitter to congratulate the actor. Not only that, Shabana also requested SRK to play the second lead in a women oriented film.

“SRK glad u r giving heroines credit above your title pls also do few heroine oriented films in which u play 2ndry role 2 make it more viable,” Shabana tweeted. Well, though we think it’s a great idea, it seems a bit unlikely that SRK, or any other Bollywood hero, would do that.

However, the point to be noted here is, many of Shahrukh’s films – be it Pardes, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge or Kuch Kuch Hota Hai – have had women essaying important characters.

And we hope Shahrukh doesn’t miss out on the request considering the star is off Twitter for now! We wish he shows his magnanimity and fulfills Mrs Azmi’s wishes. We sure wouldn’t mind seeing him in one. What say BollywoodLifers?Subscribe to me on YouTube

    Pardes,DDLJ and KKHH had irrelevant roles for women to portray. Those movies are just love stories where obviously it needed a man and a woman. So you have SRK and another heroine, but all they do is dance around the bush in some corny love story. Pardes and DDLJ had the same elements. I don’t think an actress like Shabana would have said this if she wasn’t aware of SRK’s films. She knows majority of SRK movies, woman didn’t have a solid role except for playing his lover. I think Dil Se had a good role for Manisha to portray and the movie was unlike other SRK’s romantic drama films. Only two films, Chak De India and Dil Se had good roles for women to portray and the women were the core of these two movies.

    Yeh like we wanna see more gay type of movies like what she did in that film ‘fire’. SRK movies always have a top piorty for womens.

  • surily

    She is not pleased you fools. She is pointing out at shahrukh’s hypocrisy and saying things for effect. She is actually challenging him and saying that if he is ready to play second fiddle to women, why only in credits? Do a secondary role. That’s what she means and it is actually a verbal slap for srk.
