TGIT for International Woman’s Day! Women Being Worshipped (lots of SRK)

I put this together for last year’s women’s day, and it was so good I had to repost and expand it.  My first thought for International Women’s Day was a “look at these pretty women!” post, but I already did that.  So, I’m going to go a little deeper. International Women’s Day is supposed to be about men respecting women.  Doesn’t always work, of course, but that’s the idea.  And so I want to put up some pictures of men being happily dominated by women

My first thought was some kind of standard rule for this.  Like, men kneeling before women or something.  Like Shahrukh and Rekha here:

But then I realized that those standard rules don’t work.  For instance, technically Aish is above Hrithik in this picture.  But it doesn’t feel like he is really properly worshiping her, it’s more like he is amused and waiting for his chance to conquer.

So instead of having some hard and fast rule, it’s just about a feeling.  When the mood of a photo is “You are a Goddess and I worship and obey you”.  Like this, with Madhuri and Salman.

There’s a lot of pictures like that from HAHK.  Which is justified, since Madhuri is super worship-worthy in it.

And speaking of Salman worshiping women, check out how he is even super sweet to a little girl co-star!  Who accepts it as her due.

Shahrukh basically always looks like that in his photos with Gauri.  This would be my favorite if his hair was a little better.  She looks great, of course.

Okay, this is half “I worship you” and half “I am trying to look down your cleavage”

On the other hand, this super early one has always struck me as being very “Ha!  Look at how this dorky boy worships and obeys me!  So stupid, with his little mustache.  But sweet, I will keep him around”

Surprisingly hard to find a good “worship” photo for Aamir.  Maybe something about his  height, makes him shy about appearing lower than female co-stars?  I went all through his filmography and finally landed on Raja Hindustani.  And even here, the first one is a little “I worship and respect you” and a little “I am feeling up your chest with my chin”

But this second one, this is totally “you are amazing and I just want to bask in your awesome”

Shahid gives great “you are so awesome” face

With Amrita too

On the slightly younger side, there’s Also Varun and Alia

And another one!

Now, so far, these have been mostly kind of PG13 versions of “worship”.  When I first came up with this idea, I asked my friend for help, and she said she had lots and lots of links, but said she couldn’t send them to me because none of them would be safe for work.  I think she was thinking of more something like this, with John Abraham and Bipasha.  But with less clothes.

Now, for something between John and Bips and Aamir and Karisma on the wholesome scale, let us end with Shahrukh and Mahira!  Really, almost all of Raees was just an orgy of female dominance. (I know this is a Shahrukh heavy post, but he is really really big on being dominated by his co-stars/wife)

The Dubai scenes were good, but it’s all about that “battery sala” moment.

So good it’s gif-able!

And of course Jab Harry Met Sejal was essentially all about Shahrukh worshipping the woman he loved.

Okay, final question!  As a woman on International Woman’s Day, which of these photos would you like insert yourself into and be the one being worshipped?

I think I gotta go with the JHMS forehead kiss.  Not so intimate as to be alarming, but wonderfully soothing and empowering.

  1. My goodness, you really get me. *heart eyes*

    As for inserting myself I’m going straight for Mahira and Shah Rukh in the bath. Second choice would be Anushka and Shah Rukh in the garden, because that is right before one of the best hugs in all of cinema history.

    I would love a gif of the moment just before the “Battery Sala” scene when Mahira plants her foot firmly on Shah Rukh’s chair right between his legs. He looks so incredibly turned on by that. My, my, my.


    • I love his little “slight delighted surprise face” that he always gives when his heroine’s take the lead. Like, Kajol flirting with him in K3G before he leaves for work, or the Mahira scene, or lots of moments with Anushka in JHMS, especially during Radha.

      • Oh yes–I listed out all my fave Shah Rukh expressions in comments during Shah Rukh week in October and I missed this one! Very nice. Also puts me in mind of the “naughty neighbor” scene from Chalte Chalte, except there Shah Rukh can’t decide if he’s more turned on or disturbed by Rani getting into/taking the lead in the role play. Heh.


        • Yes! I love how adorably confused he gets trying to defend her “husband” while also being the naughty neighbor taking advantage of her loneliness.

  2. No doubt that from the Hindi branch of Indian filmindustry it is ShahRukh who gives the strong part to women (I would go with battery sala because of the humour)…now I’m curious what others will tell me about the south-Indian branch 🙂


    • I just realized I forgot the South Indian options! Quickly adding some in now.

    • See, it’s too intense for me! I like the forehead kiss better, much less overwhelming.

  3. Shahrukh’ s worship of women on screen is probably why he has become such a god of the genre. No-one can do that ‘ I have just discovered there is such a thing as woman in the world, and you are the one and you are amazing and beautiful and precious and fill my world’ look quite like he can.

    • Yep! And it’s these feeling of total worship, not like “you are so sexy” or “you are so beautiful” but more “your soul is just the best”.

      • It is the way that he conveys a love of women as real, multi-faceted people that I find so appealing. The “worshipping” stuff is enjoyable, but I love how he can convey all of the above at once, along with–“How funny and smart you are!” and “I really enjoy hanging out with you!” Sigh.
