great video, i just luv this video. I will watch it again and again. It is so touching!!!
It was a pleasure posting my photos and reports of the Chak De shooting. I hope you all enjoyed them and I am also sending Wafa some photos of the last day of the Melbourne shooting which shows the stretches and treatment that Shahrukh was getting on his leg or ankle. Hope you all enjoy them and I cant wait to see the Sydney posts. How exciting for you all and please go with a positive attitude and just enjoy the experience. I noticed on the days that I went to the shoot (5 times) that the more aggressive and demanding the fans were becoming the less chance that anybody had to meet him. On speaking to the film company I was told that fans had tried to break into the locker room where Shahrukh was. There were also some very abusive fans taking their frustration out on the security staff and they then proceeded to make a call and ask that Shahrukh be escorted out another way. We must respect his privacy and realise that his security people were getting quite worried as the days progressed as people seemed to get more desperate and were willing to take extra risks. These are but a few examples of what I saw and heard - there were many more. GO SYDNEY
Thanks to you all for your encouragement of our accounts of the shoot, no matter how small. It has made me, and I'm sure all the others, be able to relive it again and again.
I was one of the lucky ones who had a small encounter with our darling, but even if that hadn't happened, I felt throughout the whole day that I was so priviledged to be just breathing the same air, standing on the same ground as him. When you worship someone as much as I (we) do, that is a gift.
And imagine if I make it into the movie! we'll be linked on film forever!!!
Good point Chris
I cant wait until the film comes out and will watch it frame by frame to see if we can be seen in it. How exciting!
It was an absolute pleasure meeting you in Melbourne. I feel I've made a friend. I'm so pleased you had a good experience of all this. I'm sure we'll remember it for the rest of our lives.
You definitely have made a friend and we will share this wonderful experience forever. Please keep on calling me anytime you wish as I enjoy our conversations. Thanks
aaw thats unfair i didnt meet anyone from the forum, oh well i found this site and thats more the id ever ask for. lol
That´ts nice that some of you had the chance to meet each others. We did the same during the KANK premiere in Germany.
It seems that some of you are don´t live very far away from each others. So why not organizing a little Australian planetsrk. member meeting from time to time ? Its always great to speak together about SRK not only on the forum but personal too.
yea sounds good
thanks for helping us understand what happened there. Was there anybody who spoke to the fans, to say them that their behaviour would consequently alienate SHahRukh from them and if they would let him work he would be more inclined to come to them after the shooting. Did nobody tried to explain to the respective fans how tiring it was for ShahRukh to concentrate with all the shouts for him? I wonder.
i know wht u mean claudia, there were people shouting so loud and i guess if i was in his place i would get really annoyed and just try to be as polite as possible. thats why when i was there i only shouted when he was close lol well u know wht happens when someone u love is close lol
Many times the film company had to approach fans. The very abusive female fans on one Sunday night were asked to leave. They were told that if they continue their behaviour or put Shahrukh at risk then the police would be called. These fans kept abusing the security people and film people until they realised that Shahrukh definitely wasnt coming out. They then spat at the poor girl who was working for the film crew and left.
The security people approached a group who were being very noisy and asked them to keep it down as it was disrupting the shooting. They repeatedly had to ask fans to be quiet because as soon as they saw Shahrukh they would scream (I can understand how they feel but they didnt need to be so vocal).
I heard the film people telling so many fans that we should be grateful that we were a part of a film with Shahrukh and that he came out and danced with a few fans which is more than anyone else can say. These film people were amazed at how fanatical some fans were and I dont think they could understand it.
Shahrukh must be a very patient man and I respect him even more now.
Laura, I really appreciate your report. It is always good to know the cause. The behaviour of those fans is deplorable but it's not the first time that persons responsable for the organisation aren't aware about the impact ShahRukh has and lack manpower to keep the things under control. With trained people amongst the fans it would have been easier to get a more relaxed atmosphere.
I don't think it was lack of trained staff that was the issue - as Laura noted, it was the fans behaviour. The staff were really patient and tried to keep everyone settled and happy. While some of them were surprised by the reactions to SRK, the biggest crowd of extras an spectators they ever had at one time was about 600 - so pretty manageable. The problem was the absolute stupidity of small groups of mostly teenage fans (boys and girls) that came very close to ruining the experience for everyone. It doesn't take much of a brain to realise that if the camera is rolling, and you scream "Shah Ruuuuuuuukh" constantly when that is not the name of any character in the film, there is going to be a problem. I was more annoyed by that attitude of some fans that SRK owed them something - a photo, an autograph, a handshake, deep and meaningful talks, whatever - and their griping all day every day. I enjoyed being able to watch one of my favourite actors atwork, pretty relaxed, and enjoying himself when the shooting schedule allowed. He was here to shoot a movie after all - not to do individual meet and greets These whingers should sit back and realise that they got to do something thousands of people around the world can only dream about. Incidentally - to give you an example of one reason some of the crew, including the ADs got a bit impatient with the crowds was that a few Indian boys were taunting the Indian hockey players during a shot for goal that was being filmed and the girls were very upset with the names they were being called. So most of the boys were told to move away from the fence and went up into the stands and made fools of themselves up there as well.
Thanks Muhammad for this awesome video. Have fun.
That's what I was talking about! (With trained people I meant sort of security). If there are fans/spectators with a behaviour like that, they have to leave if they don't stop after being prewarned.
When I saw the video I also had a question about behaviour of some fans??? I saw that SRK was so calm and patient but I thought that in spite of it -it was very difficult to work and concentrate in such conditions! And I complitely agree that if fans behaviour themselves like that they must be moved away! Such way of behaviour is simply contempt of SRK and everybody who is working there at that moment!
I admire SRK's self-mastery and I respect him very much!
i know i man like srk is hard to find, he has so much patience and thts not seen in all actors. thts wht is really admirable about srk and thts why he is called the king, not just becuse he is the best, its also beacuse he has patience which is real gift.
I would have thrown them out, but the crowds were surprisingly small and the production assistants were under a lot of pressure to get crowd scene extras so I think they felt trapped into leaving these annoying people around.
I understand, they had to choose the lesser of two evils... Thanks for information. All this helps a lot to understand what was going on.
