In a recent advertisement, we saw Shahrukh Khan saying that from now on, his leading lady’s name will be before his in movie titles. And this move of his has won many hearts and a few girls were so impressed on hearing the news that they sent a bouquet of red roses to him.
“I would request to all those who I am working with, starting with Chennai Express (to do it). I don’t know whether this is going to bring a change but the point needs to be raised,” said Shahrukh recently.
It was on the occasion of International Women’s Day that King Khan pledged to follow this in all his movies henceforth. “With the mark of 100 years of Indian cinema and Women’s Day coming up, it would be a nice combination. In Chennai Express, Deepika Padukone’s name will appear first,” he added.
Shahrukh’s decision has definitely made Deepika Padukone happy. But she does not seem to be the only person in the industry impressed by the decision though. The female cast of Anubhav Sinha’s next film Gulaab Gang, we hear, had sent a large bouquet of red roses to Shahrukh at Wai, where the actor and Deepika were busy shooting for Chennai Express.
“Mahie Gill, Tanishtha Chatterjee and the others are very gung-ho about the actor’s decision. Since their film too is based on a group of women, who took up arms to protest against domestic and social violence towards the fairer sex, they wanted to say thanks to SRK,” said a source.
Gulab Gang is an upcoming movie starring Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla. The film is based on a group of women vigilantes in Uttar Pradesh with same name. This women group which is generally dressed in pink, fights against social injustice and violence against women in Bundelkhand, UP.
Its definitely a change that has never been brought to light before and we like it! For the first time in 100 years of Indian cinema, this is something worth addressing. What say people?
