Shah Rukh Khan was bullied during the 80s and 90s
Shah Rukh Khan is not back with a bang instead the superstar has brought in an entire thunderstorm with his last two mega-blockbusters Pathaan and Jawan. To say that his era is blossoming again will be an understatement. Now, amidst this, a video has been going viral wherein a veteran journalist can be seen saying in an interaction with a channel how the actor was bullied and abused in almost all of the Bollywood parties during the 80s and the 90s.
Talking about the same, the journalist recalled that there was not a single party wherein Shah Rukh Khan was not abused or bullied because many big Bollywood families and the then-reigning superstars had become insecure about the actor. He was heard saying, “80s me kaise Shah Rukh Khan ko, Matlab, almost everybody in Bollywood used to hate. Matlab koi Bollywood party nhi thi ke Shah Rukh ko gaali diye bina khatam hote the. Agar SRK ko pull down nahi kiya uske absence me, me naam nahi lunga, bohat bade top actors the, 2-4 actor the us waqt, jinke jhade bade mazboot thi, filmy families se they. Unlog ko ek jalan thi ke, ek ladka aya, aur woh Bandra me Makaan, Mannat kharid ke bait gaya hai. Aur uske har saal 3 blockbusters aati hai, aur suddenly saare power centre shift hogaya tha. Toh Shah Rukh ne woh sab jhela." Take a look at the video which was shared by Bollywood Shaadis’ Instagram page.
The same video also went viral on Reddit wherein some fans also tried to guess who these Bollywood families and the actors were who belittled Shah Rukh Khan. Names like Sunny Deol, Anil Kapoor, Govinda, and Aamir Khan came up from the netizens who were allegedly insecure about Shah Rukh. A user added that despite their once-rivalry, Salman Khan and his family instead gave a lot of love and support to Shah Rukh.
Meanwhile, Shah Rukh Khan’s latest film Jawan like a raging bull at the box office. It has earned a mammoth Rs 287 crore within just 4 days of its release. The movie also became the fastest Hindi film to enter the Rs 200 crore mark.
