In his address, Shah Rukh Khan spoke about the negativity on social media and highlighted the role of theatre in society.
“Social media shape the communal narratives of our times. Dissident of the idea that the spread of social media will impact films negatively, the theatre has an even more significant role to play now. Social media is usually driven by a certain narrowness of view that defines human nature to its baser self.”
“And it’s somewhere that negativity grows social media consumption and thereby increases its commercial value. Such plans have the collective narrative making it divisive and dangerous,” he said.
He said that films allowed people to understand each other better and said, “In a way, it is best to set to sustain a collective counter-narrative that talks to the larger spirit of humankind- a narrative that gets to the fore humanity’s enormous ability for compassion, unity, and brotherhood.”
