I thought this episode was good, despite there was no entertainment but the good part was that we got to see the real SRK other then his witty sense of humour and entertaining the audience with his general jokes for the first time shahrukh was his normal self and opened up his feelings and general thinking towards people. We actually got to know what his like as a person
I think in this season's episode he looked disapointed by people and also a bit sad. His jokes didnt have that spark they always do, and its probably because of the amount of rubbish said about him, it felt he finally came to conclusion of understanding what the real people around him are like and his fame is what gets the attention to him, but with emerging people like Salman, Aamir and Akshay's movies things went to a spilt for him
There were things which showed him as a genuine person but some things i dont agree with.
1) Karan kind of annoyed me when he claimed that all of a sudden these other actors claiming the fame are trying to compare themselves with the king of bollywood. Justify how they are comparing themselves, the media is and success is not only owned by shahrukh everyone can be successful I mean say something like "But they're not Shahrukh Khan... I have the luxury to own Shahrukh? Khan"... like seriously??????
2) Agree that it may be hard for SRK to keep freinds because of his lack of communication and attention towards them, but that is not the only reason why these fall outs happen, and it is no excuse to say oh i have no time for anyone....it sounds a bit like " I am too superior and busy to get in touch with you, if you want to be freinds with me, please come and talk to us and be my little puppy the same way Karan Johar is". I didnt like this part, and despite the times he said sorry and said it was his fault, it felt like he was trying to make himself look like the bigger person by asking forgivness and showing they' are all right, its my fault, i take responsibility, so indirectly he was showing they were the ones who were really wrong and his the mature guy out here
3) I sympathise with him about his parents, that was really touching, and I am sure they're proud of his success, but that was no reason for him to compare his relationships with others in the industry, yes you can be cut off with people when your cutt off from loved ones but it still doesnt make sense for him to say "i dont know how to keep freinds", accept if he said " i am too scared to lose my freinds" its more believeble
Please dont bash me for this post, its my opinion and sorry its so long. Overall it was a great episode, I am glad we got to see the human side of SRK, and what he feels as a person, I dont think things are going down the drain for him, the old freinds he loses the new he will make :) Maybe i am wrong but i feel that relationships going down the drain for SRK who had alot of connections has only Karan standing by him today along with his family, and with the success of movies and stars like Akshay, Salman and Amir he feels a little shocked that they've come up so suddenly, having said that, I agree with him that his 45 and doesnt need these kiddish fights, what i dont agree on is that he doesnt know how to keep freinds, because there should be no excuse to not try and give your hand first instead wait for others to come round.
I will give this episode a 8.5 out 10 and possible 3.5 stars out of 5
