Shah Rukh Khan has confessed a lot of times that he has immense respect for women. At the launch of author Gunjan Jain's book She Walks, She Leads, he talked about the women in his life who have been his inspirations. He said his life has been shaped up by the women in his life, including his grandmother, wife, daughter and those with whom he has worked in the film industry. "They have helped me achieve 100 per cent of what I am today. I wouldn't be half a man without these women. I owe my life to them," said Shah Rukh Khan. SRK then read out the poem he wrote for women.
“This is for girls who stay up all night, this is for you who is willing to fight. For hidden fears, hurt, pain and tears, under the smiles, laughs, and giggles we hear. Let your hair down, straight or curls, you're beautiful because you fight like a girl. For girls who wear short skirts, and their heart on their sleeve, for girls who know how difficult it is to believe. The girls who scream and cry to the pillows and tell them their goals, for girls who have a secret, but can't tell a soul. Let your eyes be your diamonds, make them your pearls, you're beautiful because you fight like a girl.
For girls who have made mistakes and have regrets galore, for girls that may not win, but always get up from the floor. The girls who take life as comes, the girl who have broken the code, for the girls who hope, that they'll get better somewhere down the road. Let your steps be a dance and jump and do the swirl, you're beautiful because you fight like a girl. For the girls who love with all their heart, although sometimes gets broke, to girls who think it's over, to real girls, all girls, who have tears to soak. You throw, you pick up and fall. But just tell the world I'm beautiful because I fight like a girl”.
