Swara Bhasker criticises Shah Rukh Khan’s character ‘Raj’ from ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’: It makes stalking seem romantic

Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol starrer ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’ completed 25 glorious years on October 20. The film commands a cult following even today across the world. While wishes have been pouring in from all sides for the team, Swara criticised Shah Rukh Khan’s character in the film. According to her, the movie makes stalking seem romantic.

A Twitter user listed down a few problematic behaviour of ‘Raj’ aka Shah Rukh Khan in DDLJ. Listing them down, he asked why women love creeps?

Check out the tweet here:

Raj does the following to Simran:

1. Lie that he raped her as a joke

2. Tears her clothes in public (accidentally, but who pulls a woman by the back of her dress anyway?)

3. Forces her to dance, and in the process gropes her and feels up her bare back

Why do women love creeps?

Replying to the tweet, Swara too criticised Shah Rukh Khan’s character in the film which glorifies stalking. She also emphasized on the fact that we all need to learn and change.

Sadly u r are right.. I mean abt what all Raj does.. This is precisely the power of #Bollywood right? It makes stalking seem romantic. And we all are influenced by it – sometimes in the form of nostalgia & sometimes despite our own best intent. We all need to learn & change 🙂 🙂
