Mumbai, Feb 1, 2017: Superstar Shah Rukh Khanis working with new age directors who tackle sensitive subjects — like “Dear Zindagi” on mental health — but he says he sometimes fails to understand the beauty of such projects.

The 51-year-old actor was lauded for his film “Dear Zindagi” with Alia Bhatt. Shah Rukh says he is happy to get associated with such issues even though he doesn’t completely understand it.

NewsGram brings to you latest new stories in India.

 

“I may not be able to convince you with my love story at my age and stage, but I come from a different world. I work with new directors but I don’t understand the beauty of it,” Shah Rukh told IANS.

He added: “To be honest, I understand the essence, I understand the empowerment of women, I understand the issues about young girl. For instance, I didn’t understand ‘Dear Zindagi’. But they (makers) knew it. This is very essential.

“But I was out of touch with that part. For me also to participate in films like this even if I don’t understand it… At least I am part of it.”

The actor, who is currently riding high on the success of “Raees”, feels nowadays mostly people are just out the rightness in everything including cinema, and turning everything into a big debate.

He says one should debate a little less and converse more.

“I keep telling people that it’s a time to have conversations. Let’s not take a side… Don’t just be ‘I think, what do you think?’ For a moment, can we all have a conversations without thinking?

“If I was to look back at ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’ or ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Haiin’ in today’s time, then you guys might just be picking out the rightness in everything… People might say ‘He is just a sneaky guy. He just lied to all the family. Will you marry a lair like Raj?'”

Shah Rukh also emphasised that all the debates are a sign of changing times.

“I think the next step is going to be once we have debated everything, is to accept what it is. I think the reason for debate mainly is because there are debatable issues. We curbed ourselves for a very long time, now it’s time to come out in open,” said the actor, who is known as Bollywood’s ‘Badshah’ and ‘King Khan’.

Now, the actor will next be seen in Imtiaz Ali’s next project with Anushka Sharma. (IANS)

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan has said that we need to have video literacy in our country.

Shah Rukh Khan was addressing the media at the “Mumbai 2.0” event here on Saturday. It was organised by the Government of Maharashtra along with Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.

Shah Rukh said that he wants to work towards growing video literacy in India, he said, “Now I have got the opportunity to do something at least in my field from which our younger generation can learn something. I think with social media, media itself has become a larger platform than it was just with television and films whether it was Indian films or even international television,”

“Social media is making everybody media savvy and I feel we still don’t have video literacy in our country. Cinema is an audio-visual medium and our culture is mainly based on talking. We are the people who listen to music and we talk a lot in our country but we don’t give importance to visual medium. We have poets, writers and singers but visual medium is growing so fast all over the world.”

Shah Rukh added that one has to learn to differentiate between good and bad content, he said, “When we earlier used to listen to ‘Twinkle twinkle little stars’ poem then we used to imagine stars in front of our eyes but now everything is available on internet so, one has to learn to differentiate between good and bad content and for that, we need to have video literacy.”

Shah Rukh said it is important to make sure the younger generation is aware about the glorious culture of the country.

“I believe in archival and I feel things should be archived. We have film division in Mumbai so, I know that people are making their effort on that front but I wanted to establish an archival centre and that archival centre can develop digital content for children also.”

On work front, Shah Rukh will be seen in Anand L. Rai’s “Zero” followed by Mahesh Mathai’s “Saare Jahaan Se Achha” playing role of an Indian astronaut Rakesh Sharma. (IANS)
