Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan feels the after-effects of demonetisation will subside and things will get back to normal. Speaking in the context of the business of films getting affected owing to the ban on Rs 500 and 1000 notes, SRK said, “I think things will generally get better as the execution of the system takes time and it should because it wouldn’t have happened overnight and we all accept that. So I think intially there must have been choices made by the people that entertainment can take a backseat. Certain luxuries would take a backseat when there is a cash crunch. But as we have been assured things will ease off. I think January and even a few days from now would be a good time. I have been made to understand with Dear Zindagi that there is a difference in terms of positivity to come and spend money for entertainment.”

Demonetisation, which came into effect from November 9, caused huge losses to films that were released in the subsequent days. Rock On 2 suffered the most with people queuing up outside banks rather than cinema halls. Subsequent films which released too suffered and the jinx was somewhat broken with Dear Zindagi.

Team Raees also addressed the controversy relating to Pakistani actors and said  Mahira Khan would be called to India of need arises as there is no restriction from the government on working with Pakistani actors.
