Did you notice: SRK hasn't posted anything online for 3-months?
Shah Rukh Khan is one of the biggest actors in India with a massive social media following. His witty comments, reactions to other celebrity posts, and banter with trolls often charm netizens. But all of this has been missing for the past few months with Khan not being active online. Following his son Aryan's arrest in a drug case, he has been completely silent.
Coming to the details, Khan's last Instagram update, still accessible, was made on September 19, where he wished his fans on Ganesh Chaturthi. He posted one other post on Twitter on September 23, where he was promoting Disney+ Hotstar for their latest ad campaign. We haven't heard from him since, not when Aryan was arrested, nor when he was granted bail on October 28.
The superstar never once attended Aryan's court proceedings, although he did go to meet his oldest son at Arthur Road Jail briefly. Usually, artists release online statements to clarify their stand on such issues but no statement came from his side. Even when the entire film industry was celebrating his child's bail, we had received a reaction only from his daughter, Suhana.
Last month certain outlets reported that the Zero actor had been approached by various foreign media houses to give a tell-all interview on the entire Aryan-NCB saga. But apparently, the superstar had turned them down, deciding to maintain a stoic silence on the subject.
Apart from personal posts, all actors engage in professional/promotional posts too. But Khan has not been doing those either. Earlier, he used to post congratulatory messages for co-actors on their upcoming launches and even his review. Yet, he didn't share any post even when his good friend-colleague Salman Khan's latest film Antim hit the screens. Salman had visited Khan's Mumbai home following Aryan's arrest.
This radio silence extends to the 56-year-old's shooting schedules too. Earlier, reports had suggested he had taken a break from filming Pathan and an Atlee-directorial owing to his son's arrest. Khan reported having resumed work in November. But we lack any confirmation. Fans have been missing the Don star's online presence and not to mention his #AskSRK sessions. Hoping he comes back soon.
