It’s been only 2 days for the release of Pathan and the hysteria is simply building big with each passing day. I don’t know if the controversies surrounding the film have benefitted or dented it, but I think that people have now started speaking up against all the nonsense they were earlier simply ignoring or not giving a hoot. For each vocal hateful person, I believe we have many well-minded people who were earlier silent. I just believe the good people have now become more vocal and have taken charge for good. I think SRK is going to become the No.1 star again for the following reasons:
SRK represents all things good
We very well know that the controversies around his movies are nothing but the manifestation of hatred towards him. We know how he has been deliberately targeted. Any sane minded person (fan or otherwise) can look through the designs of such hate campaigns. However, the problem with hate is that it is not intelligent. It is often plain stupid and self-destructive. I believe now we are entering a stage where the negativity is being exposed for what it is. Positivity will take over. And is taking over.
SRK is not just an actor. Pathan is not just a movie
SRK represents an ideology. He is the definition of success. He is all things good. So, consequently, he is the only one (or I would say most qualified) who can fight this hate. If what I believe is correct (that people are becoming smart and are seeing through hate and are fed up with it and are willing to stand with good) then there is no one better than SRK to place their bets on. A success of Pathan will be viewed as the defeat of negativity that has apparently engulfed Bollywood.
Only SRK can save Bollywood
With all the right credentials, I believe SRK is very well placed to resurrect himself as the biggest superstar of Bollywood. His haters have only reinvigorated his fanbase. I think the more he is targeted, the bigger he will become. Compared to all the other actors (no offence meant), he seems to be the one who can ride the Bollywood out of this storm. And most of us so dearly want him to be successful in that.
