It is ridiculous if people are thinking negatively about an upcoming flick of Shahrukh Khan. The ruckus about him being the protagonist is simply irrational.
If I remember it was public opinion way back when Baazigar topped ratings that it’s only Shahrukh who can play a lover and a Baazigar. It was people who said Abhishek Bachchan is not going to work out in the film industry because they compared him with his daddy. But we all know the current scenario.
Public opinion has always been too biased and that is what happening with Don as well.
Whether Don works or not but it should not be written off in this way. Devdas was made earlier but it clicked again when Sanjay Leela Bhansali created it again. So, a fair chance should be given to Don as well. No one can be Amitabh and no one can take the place of King Khan but if they want Khan to be versatile then why write him off even before seeing the film if he is trying to be different?
I think people should not give their opinions of anything on the basis of their personal likings.
