New Delhi: Shah Rukh Khan is currently grabbing the limelight for all the good reasons. Following the massive success of his Blockbuster Pathan earlier this year, the megastar is slamming the box office once again with his recently released actioner Jawan which is writing history by breaking record after record at the box office.
Meanwhile, a video of the superstar getting mobbed by his female fans has gone viral on social media. The viral clip has not only divided the internet but is also raising questions about the concept of consent in the case of male celebrities.
Check out the video here:
In the viral video, Shah Rukh is seen encircled by a considerable amount of crazy female fans who are holding the actor’s face and forcing kisses on him one by one while being completely unbothered about making him uncomfortable.
The video was dropped by a Reddit user named DreamBeliveActAchive who dropped it along with a question that reads “This happened with SRK many times. But What will happen if the same thing is done to any female actor with a bunch of male fans? Male fans will be in jail! Do you think SRK really need female bodyguards, which he said on a lighter note in one of the interviews? Any other male actor from Bollywood gets such a treatment, that too overseas.”
Now, fans are reacting to the controversial video and questioning society’s silence on such kind of behaviour by Shah Rukh’s female fans. Commenting on the same, one user highlighted how one woman almost kissed the actor’s lips and if it was not for him keeping his lips tightly closed, her tongue would have landed right down his throat
Another user commented, “This is embarrassing. Have they heard of the word consent? This is only 2 years after covid, unbelievable. ”
“What the f**k?? And then these people call celebs rude when they react”, wrote a third user.
