Mumbai, Mar 9 (IBNS) On the occasion of Woman's Day, Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan gave a pleasant surprise to his leading lady Deepika Padukone.
King Khan announced that starting from ´Chennai Express´, all his films will have the leading ladies' names appearing before his in the credit titles.
In Chennai Express, Deepika will be sharing screen space with Shah Rukh for the second time after her big debut against the superstar in ´Om Shanti Om´.
She gladly acknowledged the senior actor's chivalrous gesture.
"Small thoughts bring about big changes. It´s a wonderful initiative not to prove that women are more powerful than men but to create awareness that men and women are equal in all fields and professions," said Deepika.
"Shah Rukh has always believed woman are equal...not only in the way he interacts with us but also in his films. I´ve experienced that first hand with ´Om Shanti Om´ and now on ´Chennai Express´, and I believe this gesture of his is an extension on that. Thank you Shah," she said.
