In the middle of the controversy that’s been brewing around an old interview of Mahira Khan’s, Shah Rukh — Bollywood’s savviest businessman — released the newest poster of ‘Raees’.

In show business “all publicity is good publicity”. And by releasing this poster today, Shah Rukh literally, and figuratively, stands with Mahira while the Indo-Pak controversy swells to tidal proportions.
It’s a brilliant move. And even more importantly, it’s a subtle statement — that sooner or later, we must all stand for something, stand with our own. One actor stands by another. Nicely done, Mr. Khan!
