Shahrukh Khan believes in publicity more than Abhishek Bacchan

Shahrukh Khan believes in publicity more than Abhishek Bacchan.

Shahrukh Khan believes in publicity more than Abhishek Bacchan. The debate did arise considering the fact that both the films of Abhishek Bacchan and Shahrukh Khan had been released very recently. Shahrukh Khan has banked his assets on Billu Barber while Abhishek Bacchan tried his fortunes with Dilli 6.

If the publicity stand of both the actors are compared everyone will agree that Shahrukh Khan had left no stones unturned to reach the message of his film to every corner of the country. Not only that he had brought all the leading actresses for his film including Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone, he had also interviewed stars who had acted in the film in the different private channels all across this week.

Shahrukh Khan interviewed Irfan Khan about his experience of working in Billu Barber. He asked him questions about his feelings on the director Priyadarshan. Lara Dutta was interviewed in the same program by Shahrukh Khan. She was asked about her feelings in respect of acting in such a deglamourized role. She played the role of the wife of Irfan Khan who had rural background.

If Abhishek Bacchan is taken on the other hand, he had talked about the film Dilli 6 to many persons and shared his experience of working with giant performers like Om Puri, Wahida Rehman, Rishi Kapoor in the film. But he had not publicized the film the way Shahrukh Khan has done for the last few days. According to Abhidhek Bacchan if the film has substance the viewers will automatically see it.

Where as, according to Shahrukh Khan he has the noble duty of informing his viewers about the story and casting of the film before they go to cinema halls to watch the movie. Last year he did the same in respect of the film Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. He and his choreographer spoke about the reasons why Preeti Zinta did a dance sequence imitating Sharmila Tagore, Bipasha Basu imitated Sadhna and Nutan, Rani Mukherjee imitated Neetu Singh and Kajol imitated Nargis.

Whether the film Billu Barber or Dilli 6 becomes a greater hit is a question to be answered within a short period of time. For the time being the viewers are more informed about Shahrukh Khan’s Billu Barber than Abhishek Bacchan’s Dilli 6 due to the publicity campaign of King Khan. Let’s hope both the film do well and entertain the viewers.
