Women are the leaders of India: Shahrukh Khan

Shahrukh KhanSuperstar Shah Rukh Khan has said women are the future and that “one needs to have women to have men”, so they must be respected.

“It is important to talk about women who are making progress, taking our country forward and it is time to celebrate a little bit of brightness and positivity. You need to have women to have men,” the 47-year-old said here Thursday night at the launch of the Link Lady collection of watch brand Tag Heuer.

The evening also celebrated the power of women by felicitating four Indian women achievers, who have excelled and contributed tremendously to their respective fields.

Among those commemorated were Sara Pilot, for her contribution to charitable causes through her organisation Cequin; Pia Singh, for her work in the country’s luxury retail sector; Ritu Beri for being the pioneer of Indian fashion; and Olympic Bronze medallist Saina Nehwal for excellence in the field of sports.

Shah Rukh, looking dapper in a black suit, said it’s time to celebrate the women “who are the leaders of India”.

“It has been a few months now that we are witnessing all the news against women in India. Now everyone wants to come out and vehemently oppose the atrocity that happens with women in our country and around the globe.

“I think these are the negative feelings that are happening, so it becomes more important to have few sparks of brightness, beauty and goodness,” said the actor, who kept to his late-coming tradition, and turned up two hours later than the scheduled time.

The evening started with aerial and ground ballet performances, followed by the unveiling of the watch collection by Shah Rukh and TAG Heuer president and CEO, Jean-Christophe Babin.

Those who attended the event included Omar Abdullah, Farooq Abdullah, Shashi and Sunanda Tharoor, Sachin Pilot, Manav Gangwani, Anupama Dayal, Varun Bahl, Rohit Gandhi and Sanjay Kapoor.

SRK respects women. Was this statement even worth all the hassle and media attention? I suppose any news on SRK will keep ‘xzone’ intrigued and ‘star’ satisfied.

He’ll yeah, he is right.. But there are some people who have no respect for women..
For example..umm I actually I don’t want his name here coz I feel disgusting while typing that fool’s first letter of his name but maybe u can take a Gues’s or probably u know that guy, who abused women’s, slapped them and even threatened to do harmful stuff to a celebrity named ayishwariya..
Seriously that guy suxxx not “roxXx”

srk can go at any extreme to show people that how good he is from inside but people know what the truth is. recently he wrote an article being a khan and tried to gain peoples sympthy but it back fired on him now more people hate for that. he trying to gain sympathy because he knows that people in india started disliking him and his movies. specially now you guys will get to see srk saying lot of good stuff to be in good book but there is one thing that common hate most is fake personality, wether it politician,actor or cricketer

@Navin…definitely not…this news doesn’t deserve such media attention and hype…instead of it…news like a goon threatened aishwarya, a junkie crushed 5 beggars at footpath, a menace to society..who is soon suppose to be behind the bars…these news deserve much attention…
indicine…plz satisfy our ignoramus “navin”..plz publish an article related to these topics…

@ahmed: do you think he gives a $hit about of what you think of him? He’s already on his own league now, so he don’t need to prove anything, yet again, to people. He’s already achieved enough success, fame and money that one could ever able to achieve in their entire life time. So your opinion is of least concern to him.

@hrithik, yeah everyone knows U R A LOOSER!!! U know how, just looking by ur name and comment u fake dude…. I remember those guys u mentioned but I haven’t seen ur name at those times when those guys were present, so tell me how the hell do u know those guys fake dude??
A real looser is the one who can’t fight with his/her own identity fake dude…
Which means u r one those guys u have mentioned or its possible that u had been present in those days where those guys were present and that u probably had some other name and this fake I’d “hrithik”….
U call srk a self proclaimed king because u don’t understand the feelings of a common, normal man-
Well that’s how every common people think when he/she get huge success in their life, they feel like they r on top…but too bad u never understood his feelings…and one more thing, I have never heard him say that he is the king in reality, he never said those stuff I front if media..But media calls him the badshah of Bollywood and his fans call him king khan but he only said that scentence in the movie called “DON”.
Man U r soo lame :p

@xzone Take it easy dude, we all know that news on SRK makes you a happy bunny but dont go overboard with it. You have a tendency not to listen to anyones comments despite the many replies you get to your half baked idiotic comments. You take great solace in reading only complimentary comments made by that clown called ‘star’, who we now know to be one of your many aliases after Indicine yesterday checked all our ip addresses… (shame on you for having double standards)
Dude you need to face reality and admit to yourself that you have a problem. Everytime you wake up in the morning you dont know who you are just like srk in jthj!!! I think you just choose any identity at hand and go along with it for the rest of the day!!
I pity you and wish you take my advise and get admitted to an asylum for psychiatric assessment.
PS for Star:- ghanta winner srk roxXx

@Navin..hahaha..u r such a maladroit that ur comment doesn’t deserve anyone’s attention but it’s my highness that i am replying u…u shud be thankful to me…:P.
it is not confirmed yet that who had commented with the id “star king” (u or nvs), but u started yelping that me and “star” seems to same person…now..i only want to say that immideately get a treatment (which u used to refer others) or ask indicine abt it..got it??
and if u r talking abt a problem, then i think u have a lot more than me…thats y u arrive at each page of srk like a demented d0g…u r a pixilated,mindless and impudent salman fan (as usual)…so i won’t give u an “advise”, instead of it ..i ll give u a “warning”, that keep ur moronic comments out of any srk page…othetwise, each time u ll have to face sturdy srk fans like me…
