Shahrukh Post: Let Us Look at a Sanjay Gupta/Mika Singh Song in Honor of them Speaking Out

Brief update: there is now an accusation that a witness saw Sameer Wankhede demand a bribe not to arrest people, which possibly answers the “why the heck would a bunch of cops raid a rich kid party?”. And Sanjay Gupta, the moderately successful director, has come out loudly in support of SRK and in anger against the rest of the industry who isn’t standing up for him. And Mika Singh then posted in agreement.

Forget all of that, I freakin’ LOVE this song!!!! And I am so glad these two people being decent humans gave me an excuse to post it.

“Ganpat”

  1. It doesn’t seem to me like the rest of the industry doesn’t support him. From the global news I read the only film star who doesn’t support SRK is Kangana. Am I wrong?

    • They aren’t speaking up. Which I don’t blame them for, but it is also a valid point to make. Why is Pooja Bhatt his only co-star to speak in support, for example?

      • Salman Khan went to his house. But is that show of support less than a tweet? That is actually a real question. In my mind it isn’t, but then, I don’t do twitter. So…I might be wrong.

        • I think it is far more than a tweet. But I think there is an interesting line with this community of private versus public support. You can choose to offer private support but not want to damage your public image. Or you can say “I care about you so much, I’m not even thinking about my image” (Salman). Or you can say “I am so generally fearless, I will say whatever I think is right even if I don’t care as much as a private person” (Pooja Bhatt, nice woman but not a close family friend). It sounds like loads of people are offering private support in a “I love about you, I care about you, I’m thinking of you” kind of way (rumors are basically every co-star and friend has offered that). And that’s lovely. But it’s true, very few people are brave enough to stand up publicly and make themselves a target.

          With Salman, I think he didn’t even thinks about the public image. He truly cared so much as just a human person, that he went to their house to offer support like any human would. Not for one second did it occur to him “hey, there are bound to be photographers everywhere who will photograph my arrival and make it a public story”. He just did what he did. He hasn’t tweeted because I don’t think the family has asked for tweets, and Salman is fairly uninterested in offering unasked for opinions about things. He has made big political tweets before, but only because he got a personal request, if you see what I mean. On the other hand, Sanjay Gupta and Mika Singh clearly care about this as a public issue, a moral wrong, and as something that affects their community and therefore want to make it a public issue. Even if privately they are only casual acquaintances with the family.

          I can see both sides. Yes, you can be fearless and stand up for what you believe in. But right now, this family is probably more grateful for private loving support that leaves them alone.
