News is a cobbler in the suburbs of Mumbai has put up a dialogue from Raees in his shop. The thought provoking dialogue said in typical Raees tone by SRK, “Koi dhandha chota nahi hota aur dhandhe se bada koi dharam nahi hota” has found a special place in the cobbler Shyam Bahadur Rohidas’s shoe shop.

A cobbler from Mumbai named Shyam Bahadur Rohidas who hails from Sultanpur in Uttar Pradesh, has taken inspiration from the hard-hitting dialogue from Raees which in turn got him to put up a banner on the walls of his roadside shop.

The cobbler’s story is both awe-inspiring and heart-wrenching as he shares that he has friends working in various businesses, with some being doctors and engineers.

Shayam proudly shares his story,”My father used to work in a factory and was a part time cobbler after his work hours, I came to Mumbai for a job and that is when i learned the craft. I have mastered the skill on my own merit despite of being the son of a cobbler.”

Speaking further of his achievements and satisfaction derived from his work, he shares, “I have worked hard and I own a shop now. I am my own boss and that leaves me happy and content. In my heart I always knew this and it has been my driving force but when I heard one of the biggest stars of the country say this, it was like my feelings being represented. I’ve faced some frowns and discouragements due to the nature of my job and this line is an answer to that. My work is my worship.”

It is heartening to know that only one dialogue mouthed by Shah Rukh Khan in Raees has the power to have an uplifting effect on someone like Shyam Bahadur. -MumbaiMirror
