Kolkata: Bollywood superstars Shah Rukh and Kajol visited Kolkata on Tuesday evening for the promotion of their currently released film ‘Dilwale’. The entire team of Dilwale is also present with Shah Rukh in the city.
Joining a event at the East Bengal Club tonight, Shah Rukh said, my comment on Intolerance has been misconstrued. It has explained and submitted in a wrong way. It’s my failure for not being able to explain well.
Where his new release Dilwale is riding high in the global market, many obstructions are hitting the film in his own country. Post release this is the first press conference he is attending and he opened up about the intolerance issue.
Appearing with Kajol with their ‘Raj Simran’ naughtiness, he jokingly put the blame on kajol for being late. He said “ I was ready but women take a lot of time to wear saree.”
As the DDLJ Jodi was smoothly promoting Dilwale, arose the heated question of Intolerance. Screenings of his movie has been stopped at many places. Shahrukh said, that he feels sad. The age and position he is in right now he doesn’t have to worry about the money. Whether it affects the film’s business or not, it doesn’t affect him. As people from every corner of the country has loved me for the last 25 years. People despite of caste religion and place have loved me immensely. I can return them their love by doing good work. But when my work doesn’t reach audiences then I feel sad. A film is made with lot of people’s hard work and when due to one man every several people’s hard work get wasted then I feel sad. I wish that those who want to see the film let them see it.
Speaking about his magical chemistry with kajol, shahrukh said, “we both are good friends and have been working together for the last 22 years. We worked in 7 films together. It’s our goodluck that people have accepted our onscreen Jodi. There’s nothing like perfect love story in real. Whatever love people get in their personal love is more real and satisfactory.
Kajol said, whenever Shahrukh comes, he brings in a bit of dadagiri with him, fans here call him khan dada. Shahrukh replied he never thought that one day he will become the brand ambassador of one state. He thanks Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for that, and also mentioned that Mamata Banerjee always sends him fried fish whenever he comes to Kolkata.
Kajol said to her fans, that she can’t speak good Bengali but understands well. Each time she visits Kolkata she has to meet up with a lot of guest. Her mom, Tanuja said ‘hi’ to people of Kolkata.
After the event Shahrukh Khan tweets, “Such a beautifully organised function at the East Bengal Club. Thank u Kolkata for so much lov for Dilwale me and Kajol. Really u rock!!!”
