Superstar Shah Rukh Khan has started the shooting of his next movie “Pathan” which is being directed by Siddharth Anand and also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in important roles. Last time SRK was seen playing the main lead in “Zero” that got released in 2018. The film was directed by Aanand L Rai and starred Katrina Kaif and Anuskha Sharma as well. The flick bombed at the box-office and after this, the King of romance decided to take a break from work. SRK has not been able to deliver a hit movie on the box-office for quite some time now so his fans are keeping fingers crossed for “Pathan”.
In “Zero”, Shah Rukh played the role of a dwarf and while his fans are of the opinion that he did a great job, the actor Lilliput is not quite happy with the manner in which SRK played the character. The senior actor who has worked in many TV serials was seen recently in the web series Mirzapur 2.
Lilliput stated that even when he was not aware of the story of the flick, at that time also he felt that Shah Rukh should not play the character of a dwarf because there is nothing different to act for a normal person when he plays the role of a dwarf. He adds that a dwarf is a normal person who thinks, walks and talks like other people, it is just that his hands and legs are short or his body is a little distorted.
As per Lilliput, acting is required when a person has to play blind, deaf, mute or a character which doesn’t have a leg or hand because then he has to convince the public with his acting but convincing people that you are a dwarf is difficult, especially when you are very popular or a superstar.
Lilliput is not pleased with Shah Rukh Khan as he didn’t show the emotional effect that dwarfism has on a person. In addition, he also didn’t show the social and psychological problems that are faced by a dwarf in his life. He says that SRK didn’t show the trauma and tragedy that a dwarf goes through, in fact he was jumping and dancing like a normal person.
During the release of the movie “Zero”, Lilliput gave an interview in which he said that SRK doesn’t seem like a dwarf as the body structure of a dwarf is different while the “Fan” actor looked like a short-heighted normal person.
Do you agree with Lilliput? What are your thoughts about it?
