Firstly, I don't care whether the actors or actresses I like are gay, straight, bi or whatever...as long as they please me with their onscreen performances - I'll appreciate them. Secondly, as far as SRK being gay is concerned, I've been hearing about SRK being gay for such a long time that I've never really looked too much into it. Yes, if there's anyone in bollywood who I'm biased towards then it's most probably SRK but this gay talk at times is beyond me. I don't know what others have seen, or heard but from mere logic it doesn't make much sense to me. If SRK is gay then shouldn't majority of bollywood know about it? you have actresses drooling over him time after time. Here, fans feel upset and cheated about SRK being gay when he's portrayed as the best lover on earth, best husband on this planet etc etc lol, yet there are these actresses who'd die to work with SRK, and I'd think it wouldn't be all the same had SRK been "gay."
I speak for myself when I say this, but if I was one of those bollywood actresses and if SRK being gay was true even by an ounce, I would not go around blushing, drooling, speaking about how I'm dying to work with SRK because he's so this/that etc. If we the people are intelligent enough to come to conclusions and infer things while sitting outside of this entire bollywood fraternity then I'm sure the people actually within bollywood know probably much much more.
Like I said before, I judge these people based on their skills and the potential they posses...but this SRK being gay thing just goes over my head every time.
Let me tell you people are drawn to his power, not necessarely his physique. They all want a taste of that power. We all know he's not the most beautiful man in the world. It's all about power and image. Best husband, best lover etc... it's all an image these actors build. There is a whole team working behind the scene to maintain that image. It's marketing and people go to school for that. Wake up people, Tiger Woods anyone??? I love SRK, really, but I'm not blind nor gullible. He's not perfect and I accept that. I'm not perfect either, but I definitely and categorically do not buy into his image. I live in NY and I've met tons of celebs like Robert De Niro, Sandra Bullock, etc... Believe me we all have dirty secrets!!
I never said SRK's perfect. Yes, we all have dirty secrets, things that no one but we know..but, like I said, if we, the people, know all these dirty secrets of bw celebs, then I'm prettyy sure that celebs residing within bollywood know much more....This is just my way of thinking, you or anyone else for that matter does not have to agree, but... if many people on I-F blatantly know that SRK's gay and find it disturbing, then these actresses who go gaga over him mostly for his loverboy image should know such news w/in a heartbeat..they're the ones who live in the world of dirty little secrets - bollywood. And, once again...if that is true, I speak for myself when I say this..I would not drool/blush over SRK if that were the case - if I were one of those actresses. Although, I'd still like SRK - the actor. In terms of star power, well SRK isn't the only guy in bollywood with star power.....and being gay should change that entire SRK image with these actresses, at least to some extent, imo. It has with so many fans...Just go through these 90+ pages and its pretty clear.
Apart from that, I don't care whether SRK's gay or not...I've never drooled over SRK like a fangirl, it's merely his onscreen presence that I've loved.. but I really could care less about his sexuality. It has nothing to do with being blind or gullible, it's merely about I could care less what SRK is, what dirty little secret he has, what he does, who he really is..as long as he pleases me with his performances like he has for the most part for all these years. The only thing I pinpointed at was, from what I think, I doubt SRK's gay..if everyone else thinks he is, that's fine by me. .. his life, he can do whatever he likes..even if he were to come out and say he was gay, it wouldn't bother me..He doesn't owe me or any of part of his audience any apology whatsoever..
...bottom line is, I just don't THINK he's gay, just my perception really.
Call it being naive, me being gullible or whatever you'd like..that's just how I see it.
I apologize, I didn't mean to say that everyone was blind and gullible here. Bad phrasing!!
Truth be told ...even if we were, it would not be our fault because actors spend money for us to be.
Meaning that they fight to protect their image and their dirty secrets.
You're absolutely entitled to have your opinion and I respect it.
I also love SRK by the way, a lot...
He has this magnetism that is rare and that make people gravitate towards him.
And I still watch his movies too but now for some reason when I see him in a scene with a woman,
I'm no longer convince and it sort of ruins the experience for me.
And I agree, it's all based on perception.
Just like you feel that he's not gay, I feel that he is.
And we might never know.
And that's why these actors protect their image fiercely, because they know that once a doubt is planted into people's mind-- I speak for me---the damage might be irreparable.
And by the way, in their own bollywood circle, I bet you that everybody knows everything,
but they will never tell because it's a fraternity and they have to protect their own.
I will do the same if I were in their shoes.
