Khans Making Me Smile! Salman’s Music Video, SRK’s AskSRK

I feel bad, Salman made a deeply felt sincere music video, and here I am sitting in my PJs giggling at it. But really! Sincerity is funny!

Oh Salman! A song about unity and togetherness and India as one, which he is singing himself and managing to make during isolation, it’s all a lovely thing to do. But somehow it also makes me laugh and laugh and laugh.

Maybe that was his intention? Maybe he knows sincerity and emotional acting straight at the camera in arty black and white make certain cynical people giggle and he just wants me to be happy?

And Shahrukh did an AskSRK!!! If I am doing this right, I am going to embed all the best questions and answers:

Tweet everyone thinks is confirming that he is making a movie with Hirani, but which I think is confirming that he enjoys teasing us with the possibility he is making a movie with Hirani without actually confirming it:

Also, a “hmm” tweet

This one makes me feel better, good life advice for all SRK fans!

This makes me think maybe Aryan and Suhana did make it home?

And Aamir is doing for his fans…..nothing. You know why, right? He’s sitting at home, watching Salman’s video and reading SRK’s tweets, thinking “I have something great to cheer up my fans too, but it has to be PERFECT! I’ve done 5 tries now and thrown each away because it wasn’t just right. If it isn’t perfect, it’s GARBAGE! I will just keep working on this obsessively and then finally release it, stop sleeping for 3 days as I watch the response, and then finally relax.”

(I can’t resist, I have to post Salman’s previous music video which makes me giggle even more)

  1. I don’t know if you remember that interview maybe during Zero promotions…two young reporters interviewed him at Mannat and they were being kind of harsh then AbRam walked into the frame and they had such an adorable interaction, the reporters melted. In that interview they asked him about the black toothbrush which in fact had been made for him.
    I love AskSRK even though I always miss it because it is early in the morning here. Google translate gets a work out from me!

    • It’s just so FUNNY! This is also why I can’t watch personal story theater productions, I just get the giggles when people are very very sincere and important.

  2. And last comment: now we know that Aryan is home. Though Shah sometimes says things like that that aren’t accurate as well.

    • Well, a lot of American schools I know about just didn’t re-open after spring break. So they could have been home for that and just stayed. Or, since America was slightly ahead of the curve from India, maybe they came home before the quarantine came down.

  3. I am giggling because picturing Aamir doing those things just fits! I am happy smiling at Salman videos, maybe since it’s been so long I’ve watched him in a movie. He should do these song videos instead of stupid action movies, look how happy he is in the Hero song!

  4. This #AskSRK is sort of heartbreaking to me. Not because of Shah Rukh, but on his behalf. I often forget that he DOES read all those mean/barely straddling the mean comment disguised as a compliment tweets. Things like “decline is inevitable” or “when will you make a good movie” or “how long have you gone without signing a film” – this must be genuinely upsetting. While he seems like he has grown a thick skin over the years, he hasn’t had a slump this BAD in ages. If it were me, I would be watching very carefully to see which allies stand by me, and which ones slowly slip away.

    But yeah, good that he is taking a bit of a break, spending time with kids! I guess he did award shows/weddings last year to keep up an income stream? I don’t know, I Just wish him the very best, and I will be in queue buying tickets to the premiere show whenever his Next comes out.

    Also Aamir – I liked what you said! Is it okay for me to still be a regular on your blog/site and just loathe Aamir? I don’t like him. I think he’s gotten holier-than-thou pompous over the years, and that he tries too hard to be different and comes across as fake. (I will admit that I disliked what he said about Karan on Koffee: that he didn’t know him well, and what little he knew, he didn’t like. People who have issues with Karan need to stop going on Koffee with Karan, as simple as that.)

    Anyway, another great post from you! I hope the views/comments keep growing.

    • Yeah, SRK on social media is generally heartbreaking I think. So much hate coming his way! But also some love, which is why I like the AskSRKs, because he tends to pick out nice loving messages I wouldn’t otherwise see. As for what he was doing during his down time, Red Chillies is a beast. Their VFX branch alone is probably turning enough profit to keep SRK comfortable. Sure, weddings and stuff help, but I think he has reached the point where the company is supporting him instead of the other way around. Sad for SRK fans since he doesn’t have to work for money any more, but happy for SRK the person.

      You can definitely not like Aamir! We even have some people here who don’t like SRK, and they haven’t been publicly shamed and driven away. Well, only a little bit. Believe it or not, we also have SRK fans here who don’t like KKHH and DDLJ! And I myself don’t like Zero. A whole variety of opinions are possible.

      I like your rule for Koffee. just, why? You are allowed to say no if you don’t want to go on.
