Shahrukh Khan unfit for the role, his image in the audience mind is much larger

Shahrukh Khan has of late tried to wean himself away from his demeanour and decided to do something new. However, his attempts have never been successful. If the new breed of actors like Ayushman Khurana, Ranveer Singh or even Shahid Kapoor had done the film, it would have been appreciated by the audience. However, the lover boy image of Shahrukh is set like concrete in the mind of the audience, and it is tough for Shahrukh to break that mould.
