At the moment, it seems that there is more discussion about Bollywood in its boycott trend than in the movies. One after another the arguments come to light and all the established arguments are rejected in a jiffy by a variety of superstitions. Currently the target of the Boycott Bollywood trend is the release of Karan Johar’s ‘Brahmastra’ on September 9th. Directed by Ayan Mukerji, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt are in the lead roles. The story of Brahmastra is a science fiction mythological story based on a mystery related to Lord Shiva. Shahrukh Khan is also said to have a cameo in the film.
Shahrukh’s presence in film circles is considered Brahmastra’s greatest USP. However, the producers of the film are completely silent about Shahrukh and his face has not been officially shown in the promotion of any film. What is the work of Shahrukh in Brahmastra? It hasn’t been revealed, but discussions indicate that people are interested in it. Interest has both positive and negative reasons. The bad meaning of Shahrukh being in Karan Johar’s film can be seen in the negative campaign against the film.
Many people claim that the way the Boycott Bollywood campaign has seen protests in recent months, especially the stars of Khan, is working to change Shahrukh’s image before the release of Pathan. Some people on social media are saying that before the release of Pathan, King Khan will be seen making a cameo appearance in the second movie in a row. Previously, Shah Rukh also made a cameo appearance in the biopic of Nambi Narayan, the honest scientist from ISRO. He had a small role as a journalist in Rocketry: The Nambi Effect. The Nambi Effect became a movie made on a right-wing agenda by a section. It was said that like Brahmastra, the support of a film loaded with national sentiments like Nambi Effect is nothing more than changing the image of Shahrukh.
Shahrukh Khan is making a cameo appearance in Brahmastra.Shahrukh’s character in a mythological story like Brahmastra is amazing!
It is too early to make any claims about Shahrukh’s role in Brahmastra before its release. By the way, many videos have gone viral in recent weeks. On the basis of which discussions were held about the character of Shahrukh in Brahmastra. Some people claimed that Shahrukh is in the role of a scientist. In some claims, his character was said to be supernatural. Two such claims have also emerged in which the actor is said to be in the role of Lord Shiva or Lord Hanuman. In one video, he is seen descending from the air to the ground. Next to him is the figure of Hanuman ji. While in a video a panoramic image was seen as Shiva and it was said that he is none other than the King Khan.
Now how Brahmastra will change Shahrukh’s image: it may be a matter of debate. Can a cameo change someone’s image? King Khan has made cameo appearances in many movies so far. By the way, he was not seen in mythological characters. However, he played the role of one of India’s greatest warriors and emperors in the period drama Ashoka. By the way, King Khan is counted among the closest friends of Karan Johar. Their association is almost as old as King Khan’s career in Bollywood. In the box office hit Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, Karan also shared the screen as Shahrukh’s friend. Most of the big box office hits that Dharma Productions has delivered in recent years have been made with Shahrukh.
Try to fail Brahmastra or try to save Pathan
It may also be that Shahrukh is making the same cameo appearance that he has been making in all the movies so far. Since all the campaigns seen in opposition to Bollywood can certainly be said to be based on hatred of Muslims. Therefore, his name is used to increase the anger of the people regarding the Muslim hatred against Brahmastra. His old friendship with Karan Johar and being in the movie etc. is presented as evidence.
Pathan is going to be released next year and Boycott’s sword hangs on it as well. This is what the Pathan protests are saying months before the release. Pathan is a Yash Raj Films production. It is one of the biggest upcoming Bollywood movies. It also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in major roles along with Shahrukh.
Now it remains to be seen how Brahmastra will suffer because of Shahrukh. But for an artist of any origin, a character is just an act. Nothing more than that. The things of the world cannot be decided on the basis of arguments on social networks.
