First the iconic David Letterman , and now BBC America’s legendary Tom Brook , they both came to interview none other than Shah Rukh Khan.
What’s with the uni-focused fascination with one Bollywood legend? Not that we are implying that SRK is undeserving of the honour. He is in many ways the archetypal Bollywood hero representative of all that is desirable in Indian cinema. But there actors in Hindi cinema(we arenpt even going into non-Hindi Indian cinema) who have achieved far more than SRK.Amitabh Bachchan, for one. Irrfan Khan, Aamir Khan and Dharmendra are other actors who come to mind.
Surely they too deserve a global voice.
We know SRK has the best PR machinery working for him. But can that machinery influence the international media? It looks like it can
We hear Salman ,Aamir and Akshay Kumar are looking for ways to enhance their global impact and image .Maybe the next popular American talkshow host would pop in for the other movers and shakers of Bollywood .
How about a female Bollywood icon, like Madhuri Dixit or Deepika Padukone?
