Throwback To The Time When SRK Told Us To Fight Like A Girl


A throwback to the time when Shah Rukh Khan broke the internet with his poem about “Fighting like a girl”. Addressing a gathering at the launch of Gunjan Jain’s book, Shah Rukh, just before reading from a letter he had written for Gunjan, said: “I’m also a struggling writer. I have not been able to take my calling very seriously.”

While reading the letter, he said, “There was an amazing quote about girls by Zayn Malik that I read. I’d really tried to be with it because of my daughter. So when I met him in London, inspired by his thoughts and his writing, I penned a poem for tonight or at least some rhyming lines that I felt about girls all around the world.

Read the lines penned by King Khan himself about the struggles women face growing up.

This is for girls who stay up all night,
This is for you who are 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 wears short skirts,
And their heart on their sleeve,
For girls who know how difficult,
It is to believe,
The girls who scream and cry,
Into their pillows and tell them their goals,
For girls who have a secret,
But can’t tell a soul.
Let your eyes be your diamond,
Make them your pearls,
You’re beautiful because you fight like a girl.
For girls who have made mistakes,
And have regrets galore,
Because you fight like a girl.
For the girls who love with all their heart,
Although it sometimes gets broke,
To who think it’s over,
To real girls, to 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.”
