Entertainment is the best way to spread social message, says Akshay Kumar

Mumbai: He started his career with action-oriented roles, but in the recent years Akshay Kumar has made a point to pick films which convey a social message as the actor believes cinema has the power to create awareness.

The actor, whose “Toilet: Ek Prem Katha” focused on importance of sanitation, hopes to create awareness about menstrual hygiene with his latest release “Padman”.

“Nobody is interested in listening to speeches or watching documentaries. They are more interested in knowing about a subject through films.

“People have watched ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ and the have understood the importance of toilets and not defecating in the open. Entertainment is the best way to spread social message,” Akshay says in a media interaction here.

After ‘PadMan’, Akshay Kumar and KriArj Entertainment join hands again
The 50-year-old actor says education also plays an important role in creating awareness. “Menstrual hygiene should be part of educational system.

There is never a thing on menstruation. Even if there is something on the subject, it is only for girls. That is the worst part. Even boys should be included in this conversation on menstruation,” he says.

“Padman” hit the cinemas on February 9 but Akshay says for this film, he wants to continue the promotions as he wants to keep the conversation on menstrual hygiene alive. The actor recently installed a sanitary pad vending machine at ST bus depot in Mumbai Central.

Akshay says he decided to do the R Balki-directed film as he wanted to break the taboo attached with periods.

“The idea was to break the taboo and there is nothing wrong in it. There is nothing wrong in talking about menstruation and I just want people to come and watch the film,” he adds.

The actor says that the World Bank is set to screen the film in 6,42,000 villages across India free of cost.

“Padman”, which is based on the life of Tamil Nadu-based social activist Arunachalam Muruganantham, also features Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor.

Is King Khan Shah Rukh’s Golden Era coming to an end?

Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan entered in the film industry around the same time and have rewritten the rules of Bollywood. The Khan trio have ruled Bollywood for the best part of last 30 years. They gave hits after hits and showed no signs of slowing down.

Aamir Khan’s last film Dangal broke the ceiling and earned over Rs 2,000 crore worldwide, and once again proved that class and panache are unbeatable. Salman Khan, on the other hand, just suffered a minor setback when his last film Tubelight fared averagely and couldn’t set box office on fire. This brings us to the King of romance and ultimate show stopper Shah Rukh Khan. And, believe it or not, he has been struggling for a long period of time and his box office collections have been consistently poor and below par.

Rough patch?
Is King Khan going through a rough patch or it is just a temporary phase? Shah Rukh rewrote the rules of Hindi film industry with his impeccable acting, adapting to different situations and proving his worth day in day out. But, something has been amiss and last 24 months have been disastrous and shocking to the audience. Shah Rukh prides himself on knowing the audience’s pulse and reinventing himself over different periods of time. Shah Rukh’s latest films such as Happy New Year, Dilwale, Fan, Raees and now Jab Harry Met Sejal have done rather mediocre business at the box office and received mostly negative reviews across the board. Even King Khan is allowed to have couple of flops, but this has been happening for a period of time and despite being a very shrewd actor he is repeating the same mistakes again and again.

Bollywood’s Tendulkar
Sachin Tendulkar was the ultimate champion, but late in his career he just couldn’t decide when to retire and dragged his career for far too long. Nobody is saying that SRK is over the hill or past his prime but there comes a time, when one has to take stock of situation and decide his next moves very smartly. SRK will turn 52 on November 2 and as they say time and tide waits for none and SRK is no exception.

Looking forward
Shah Rukh Khan has to very calmly decide on his next move and assess why his films are not earning as films of other Khans. Dangal’s record will be very hard to break and even Aamir Khan will struggle to topple it, but King Khan deep down must be knowing that he is losing his charisma and the elusive magic is disappearing. People should ask why are you leaving rather than when are you leaving and Shah Rukh Khan is smart enough to make decision on his career and hopefully he leaves a legacy of excellence rather than that of mediocrity.
