The King of Bollywood Shahrukh Khan has said that his bad look in the upcoming flick ‘Don 2’ has no justifications, and he does not rate himself a role model for the Indians.
His action movie has been released in Dubai, but it will hit big screens in India on December 23, 2011. Following his negative role in the movie, the King Khan has been collecting a lot of criticism.
The critics argued that since the youngsters consider him a role model, SRK should have not played such negative role, as it might make a bad impact.
On the other hand, the veteran actor clarified that despite his controversial smoking scenes, he tried his best to make his look as better as he could.
"When I am good, I am good but when I am bad, I am better. I have a dark soul and I am very proud of the film because I could be as bad as I wanted and there is no justification. Of course, we are not glorifying the bad things but in my 70 films odd career
I have never enjoyed playing a part like I do in Don 2," said Shah Rukh.
"I don’t consider myself a role model. I have little kids of my own and I make movies for them. But honestly I think they should be exposed to all kind of stories so they can give vent to whatever there is in their system and grow up to be cool like me.
We are not justifying anything here," the 46-year-old superstar stated of Don 2, directed by Farhan Akhtar and produced by Ritesh Sidhwani.
Furthermore, he backed the idea of making 3D movies in India, saying that the country has many three dimensional theaters and thus, the filmmakers need to come up with more 3D pictures.
"The film has been converted into 3D. I think the audience is ready for new technology and there will soon be a time when 3D would be the norm not the exception. There are now 600 to 800 3D theatres in India. There is a 30 percent hike in the tickets but
it will come down,” added the legendary artist whose recent 3D picture Ra One made a lot of money.
