Shahrukh Khan has said he is not big enough to attract people to Kashmir but he is hopeful that more B-Town filmmakers will return to the picturesque destination in future. The Baadshah of Bollywood is confident that people from South Asia and South East Asia will visit the valley when they watch the movie, which has been extensively shot in Kashmir.
Shahrukh Khan has completed his nine-day shooting schedule in the Valley for Yash Chopra's untitled project. In an interview with PTI, the King Khan said, "I am not so big but when people see the film made by a big banner with big names associated with it, people will come. I am hopeful of that. I am hopeful that more filmmakers will come to Kashmir. They have been coming before (militancy) on a larger scale."
When asked about the negative portrayal of Kashmir in Bollywood films, Shahrukh Khan said, "Any aspect that is geographical, ideological or political, the reason I won't comment on it in depth is that my knowledge is lacking. The biggest issue we have is that when people talk about things they don't know."
However, Shahrukh Khan feels that it is the filmmaker, who finally decides the story to be conveyed through his movie. The actor said, "In Indian film industry, the storytelling is always going to be dependent on the storyteller and they will decide what story to tell. I do understand that lot of people have issues. This kind of cinema should be made, that kind of cinema."
