SRK admits that his female co-stars work harder than him, yet remain known as nothing more than ‘Shahrukh’s heroines’

An old clip from 2018 is making rounds on the social media platforms, in which Shah Rukh Khan is speaking at the World Economic Forum. At the event, he was awarded the 24th Annual Crystal Award in Davos for his advocacy for the rights of children and women in India.

King Khan begins with talking about victims of acid attacks that his organization Meer Foundation provides relief to. “They are very brave on their own, they didn’t need any charity. They just want a certain sense of solidarity.”

With regard to gender stereotypes, the actor said, “They (women) do not need another definition which we are only too eager as a society to keep giving women, one after the other.”

 “Categorizing people according to their biological differences is perhaps the oldest and the most primitive form of oppression," he added.




SRK acknowledged how women are taught from a young age ‘to be kinder, sweeter, not sit with their legs open’ so as to remain ‘subservient to the other gender.’

The actor talked at length about his own privilege in the film industry. He admitted, his female costars have to make more efforts than him. ‘They work harder than I do, they come four five hours before I even land on the sets.’

“They are considered secondary in the scheme of things of this film world. It’s a man’s world. They work harder at everything and at the end of it all, I become the biggest superstar in the world, and they don’t get anything out of it. They are just Shahrukh Khan’s heroines,” the actor reflected on the painful reality.
