Shahrukh Khan beard

Shahrukh Khan is quite a supporter of women empowerment and this is a sign of a man who is quite confident and does not feel threatened by women gaining the upper hand .

SRK earlier had ensured that the actress’s name should precede the actors name in credits, this he had done in Chennai Express where Deepika Padukone’s name had preceded him.  And now he has gone a step further as he will be doing the same in award shows next year.


As per sources SRK said, “I am hosting an award show next year and I will ensure that the best actress award should be saved for the last. It is a nice thing. Hindi films, and films at large, are a little patriarchal. But don’t worry. It will change in the next ten years. Women will rule.”

Shahrukh Khan was motivated by good friend R Balki’s ‘Tata Tea ad’ to take this step, “Balki had made that ad for Tata Tea and I got the idea. Since Chennai Express is our film, I could take the call. We will do the same thing with Farah’s Happy New Year,” he added.

Good to see the celebrities taking this step  in giving women their due.
