Shahrukh hits out at Slumdog Millionaire critics

Shahrukh Khan continues to defend Slumdog Millionaire, the movie which he didn't do. He rejected the quiz master's role that has been played by Anil Kapoor.
The multi award-winning film has been slammed by many B-Town biggies. Danny Boyle has also been accused of under paying the Indian child artistes despite the director denying it vehemently. Now, Shahrukh has gotten busy hitting out at critics of Danny Boyle's Oscar nominated rags to riches drama and says that it shows India in a 'visually appealing way'.
Shahrukh said, "I think it's really nice that the film will open doors for people to understand that there is a lot of visual appeal to India. I hear a lot of people saying that India has been shown in bad light. But then my logic to everyone is that why is it that somebody comes from outside and makes a film like Gandhi and Slumdog Millionaire and it becomes internationally acceptable. All we can say about it is that it is showing India in a poor light."
Well, if Shahrukh loves the movie so much, he should have done it. His defending ways would have suited him so much then.
