Shahrukh Khan is taking a great and laudable initiative on the occasion of International Women's Day.

Superstar Shahrukh Khan has taken a pledge on the occasion of International Women's Day and says henceforth in all his films, the leading actress' name would appear before his in the credits. He is starting it with Chennai Express.

"I would request to all those who I am working with, starting with 'Chennai Express' (to do it). I don't know whether this is going to bring a change but the point needs to be raised," said SRK who has teamed up with Deepika Padukone in director Rohit Shetty's "Chennai Express".

"With the mark of 100 years of Indian cinema and Women's Day coming up, it would be a nice combination. In 'Chennai Express', Deepika Padukone's name will appear first," he added.

When asked what was Deepika's reaction to be the first actresses to have her name before the lead actor in the credit, he said: "She was not jumping on the roof top. She said, 'It's great, but I hope even others start following this.'"

The atrocities against women is on the rise in the country and this Women's Day TATA Tea's "Jaago Re" campaign has started a new initiative - Women First - with Shahrukh Khan.

The superstar unveiled the ad, directed by R. Balki, here Wednesday and interacted with media and shared his views on women. The ad will be launched on Women's Day.

SRK stressed upon the fact that "women's position in every field needs to be respected".

"Right from my mom to all the actresses I work with are the most important women in my life," he added.

The actor, who has been part of filmdom for 20 years and worked with female directors - Hema Malini in "Dil Aashna Hai" and Farah Khan in Main Hoon Na and Om Shanti Om, assured he would try to collaborate with more women directors in the future.

"I will not make women centric films just for the heck of it. In all my films, I'd assure all my actresses get enough importance for their roles. I would like to work with many more women directors."

On the International Women's Day, the First Lady of the US, Michelle Obama, will honour 10 most courageous women in the world . India's Nirbhaya, who was brutally gangraped and later died from injuries, has been chosen for the honour.

Commenting to the news, SRK said: "It is good that they are honouring her, but I don't want anybody to die to get this honour. In fact, I want women to get award for their achievements. We should respect her, love her and remember her."
