Resurfaced video of SRK offering his watch to Lady Gaga sparks criticism from netizenstext_fields
Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, known for his chivalrous demeanour and gracious conduct, has been facing online backlash due to an old video from 2011 that has resurfaced on the internet.
The video captures an interaction between SRK and Lady Gaga, wherein the "Pathaan" actor can be seen leaning over her and persistently offering his watch as a gift.
The clip from the interview was shared on Reddit by a user, triggering a negative response from viewers.
During their light-hearted conversation, Shah Rukh presents his "expensive" watch to Lady Gaga as a gesture of goodwill, but she declines the offer.
He leans closer, insisting that she accept the watch, while she maintains a downward gaze and continues to refuse.
Eventually, she suggests giving the watch to a fan, but he suggests she can give it away if she wishes.
The Reddit post garnered critical comments from internet users, who called out SRK for his behaviour.
One user wrote, "It's funny how in movies they all be like ‘No means No’, but they themselves don't follow what they preach."
Another pointed out, “If Ranveer Singh/Varun did this, people in this sub would have burned them to death.”
Another comment read: “She was so uncomfortable of his closeness (sic)."
“He was almost over her... that was bad,” said another person.
