This small piece of writing is my feelings for movies and stardom.
I was a kid personally when I started watching movies and it was because of SRK that I started liking movies. Watching Deewana, I felt the love for the first time in school. Watching Anjaam, I found a crazier lover inside me in my school days. DDLJ was next level of craze, for the first time, I was dating a girl.
My marriage was during Chalte Chalte or Hum Tumhare hai Sanam and had similar moments in life too.
Watching Devdas, I loved my wife more. Watching Swades, I decided to never ever leave my country except for visiting while other friends of mine are at Microsoft and Apple now, and staying in my country, I haven't failed either; instead have done few things remarkable for my country even if not big.
SRK movies for me has been a journey of life. I have been real busy the last decade when his movies started failing or succeeding to the level I wanted. I never watched Zero completely. My Name is Khan, Don 1&2, RNBDJ were the last movies of SRK I liked. After that, I stopped watching movies in general.
Now that Pathaan is here, I can celebrate movies. I am happy that the movie worked; the aura and stardom of SRK worked. Personally, I didn't so much love the movie, it was so so... Albeit, I can now dream that SRK will be the one I like in both the upcoming movies, I can hope that Jawaan will be as good a masala entertainer as south movies like KGF and Dunki can be a good social entertainer.
People my age here might have their own favorites and no offense to them, but for me, movies is SRK and SRK is movies. I will stop enjoying movies after SRK and hope he does movies for two more decades.
Long live the Khan era, and hope the other two Khans also bring entertainment in the future. I don't celebrate them like SRK but surely enjoy a Wanted of Salman and Rang de Basanti of Aamir. No new kid can ever take place of these legends at least for me. HR, Akki and Ajay and the Khans will be the era of movies for me, always...
Just a small write-up from my side when the forum has restarted after Pathaan. Let's keep the forum clean and let's discuss cinema as a whole. I wrote my point of view and love for SRK, let's here from my readers too...
