Women are the backbone in Bollywood says Shahrukh Khan

Submitted by on Thursday, 7 March 2013No Comment

Bollywood News: Bollywood Superstar Shahrukh Khan has starred in a short film aimed at changing attitudes to women in society. The actor has collaborated with filmmaker R Balki for the short, which is part of TATA Tea’s Women First campaign.

Speaking to PTI, Shahrukh Khan said: “When Balki asked me about it I readily agreed as I liked the concept. I jumped at the idea and shot for it soon.”

The Jab Tak Hain Jaan star also commented on the status of women in Bollywood, says “Women are the backbone in my field of work. But they don’t get due credit. “I have worked with Hemaji, Madhuri, Sridevi, Juhi, Deepika, Anushka and several others. They all work hard and are better. Also, be it women directors, producers, choreographers and other women in my field, I am inspired by all.”

Shah Rukh Khan added that women should be given priority in film, and in an attempt to redress the balance he would give his Chennai Express co-star the first credit in the film’s titles.

“I would like to request to all that the name of heroines should appear first while giving credits,” said Shahrukh Khan. “We would start this with Chennai Express. Deepika’s name comes first. She is quite excited about it. “I would request others also to do it. I know this will not make a huge difference but maybe a change in mindset will happen… I am looking to make a point.” At a recent press event, the actor said it was important to acknowledge the contribution of women in society.

The short film, which was shot in Panchgani, will be broadcast on International Women’s Day on March 8.
