Ever since the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) arrested Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan in the Mumbai drug bust case on October 3, social media has got divided into two groups – anti-SRK and pro-SRK. Even as the actor and his family were trolled incessentally, hashtags like ‘I Stand With SRK’, ‘I am with Aryan Khan’, ‘With SRK’ and others are constantly trending on social media. Fans and contemporaries of SRK are expressing their solidarity with the actor.
Earlier this week, writer Akhil Katyal wrote a poem on Shah Rukh Khan. Referring to the characters SRK has played over the years, Akhil expressed that the actor has the whole of India in him. As soon as he posted the poem on his Instagram account, it went viral and received immense support and love from the actor’s fans.
Read the poem here:
Wo Kabhi Rahul hai, kabhi Raj
Kabhi Charlie toh kabhi Max
Surinder bhi wo, Harry bhi wo
Devdas bhi aur Veer bhi
Ram, Mohan, Kabir bhi
Wo Amar hai, Samar hai
Rizwan, Raees, Jehangir bhi
Shayad isliye kuch logon ke halak mein fasta hai
Ki ek Shahrukh mein pura hindustan basta hai

He quoted few lines from Dil Se’s title track. “Bandhan Hai Rishton Mein, Kaaton Ki Taarein Hain, Patthar Ke Darwaaze Deewaarein, Belein Phir Bhi Ugti Hain, Aur Guchchhe Bhi Khilte Hain, Aur Chalte Hain Afsaane, Kirdaar Bhi Milte Hain, Vo Rishtey Dil Dil Dil Thay,” he wrote and ended his post with ‘Love you @iamsrk! Dil se’.
