Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Pathaan’ has created havoc at box office even before release in advance booking numbers. Film is shattering new records with each passing hour in India and overseas.
Legendary writer and lyricist Javed Akhtar said at an event, ‘When you go to Germany and say I’m Indian, first thing they’ll ask you ‘You Know Shah Rukh?’. He spoke briefly about soft power of Bollywood and compared SRK to biggest stars of Hollywood. He rated him higher in terms of recognition and appeal worldwide.
Veteran lyricist and poet Javed Akhtar on Friday, during a media interaction at a literature festival in Jaipur, raised the viral social media trend of ‘Boycott Bollywood’ and appealed to people to respect Indian films. “We love movies, whether it is from North, South, East or West. Stories are in our DNA. It’s in our DNA to listen and to tell stories. So we should respect Indian films,” Javed Akhtar said while backing Bollywood amid boycott trend.
