Shah Rukh Khan is really going through some bad phase in his career and some of his recent films have really turned flop at the box office. However, that is different but no one will disagree that Shah Rukh is always a star and will always be. Even after his some of the films flopped, people started asking is this end of Shah Rukh Khan's era? Is Shah Rukh losing his charm?

These are the question that not only coming out in the tabloids but also in the social media several times, that just not hurt the hard work of the actor but also the sentiments of his fans. Shah Rukh Khan's last few films like Jab Harry Met Sejal, Zero and others tanked at the box office and the big reason why his films didn't do well because of the critic's ratings.

His both films were totally disastrous when it comes to critics ratings, especially with the case of Zero, the bad reviews of the films really made a strong impact on the audience. Last night, Shah Rukh Khan made a surprising entry at Critics Film Choice Awards 2019 and here he came out with full preparation and slammed all critics for rating films with stars.


What would be the best place to criticizing the critics in their own platform? Shah Rukh said, "We filmmakers have fought along to give more credit to constructive and jaded ideas. We search for art, we search for form without the essence of the stories. We find logic and disregard the free-spirit of storytelling. We have to remind ourselves that truth is formless, only untruths are formed. We as film fraternity have to be truer to ourselves, to the stories we set out to tell."


So I request all my critics friends here, please don't be like us Bollywood film stars, and get carried away by what Bollywood succumbed to many years ago - the star system. The star system cannot be the only way of summing up films by our critics. 3 stars, 3.5 stars, 3 and a quarter stars, 5 stars....It's a film, not a hotel for God sake. With critics sprouting all over, film critic is becoming an endangered species. Please let it not get replaced by consumer service..."SRK added in his speech.

Let us tell you that after the failure of Zero, Shah Rukh even has moved out of his next expected venture Saare Jahaan Se Achcha because the film was also on the same line-up of Zero. Recently, Shah Rukh also talks about his upcoming projects and said that he has not received any story that excites him to work. Meanwhile, he clearly said that his next film will be as sexy as the fans want him to be.
