Shah Rukh Khan's candid revelations you shouldn't miss
Shah Rukh Khan's Eid lunch is not something many journalists are unfamiliar with but what catches attention by each passing year is the perpetual energy that King Khan showcases while interacting with everyone around. Dressed in a white pathani, SRK was at his humorous best and also did some candid confessions as he interacted with media on the occassion of Eid.
SRK completes 25 years in the industry, but the actor promptly asserts that if he is working with young women, he is young too!
" When I speak to my family, and see my children all grown up, so reality is there for me to see, but I do feel all of this happened so fast. That's why when people question for how many years I'm doing the same thing, and for how long I'll continue doing it, I find it odd. Because for me, I have just arrived, if I am working with all these women, I'm also young right?" SRK adds with a smile.
He continues, "But on a serious note, on days like this, what I do is, Twitter people put all the pictures of me from all my films, and a couple of days ago I really sat down to count the pictures, there were so many posters there. I don't even know how many films I've done."
Thousands of his fans wait outside his sea facing Bandra house 'Mannat' just to catch a glimpse of him, but SRK has never told himself that he has become a star!
"I know it'll sound odd, but it hasn't set in yet. One can look at it and say if I expected all this, then I'd say no. This was meant to be, I have never given it more importance or credibility, or anything else, I have never sat down and told myself that I have become a star. A lot of people tell me, my well wishers, my team that as a star I need to do this and not do this as I am a star. But, I have never done anything to maintain it, or lose it, or make it, or break it," replies SRK.
"I also have outbursts, ego and self importance like every human being has, but I have treated it with a lot of humility, it is a job I do. I do it well, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. But I am detached to the outcome. I feel bad if a film doesn't do well, or good if it does, but it lasts for about six hours, then I move on," confesses the star.
The Badshah of Bollywood calls himself a professional liar and feels that its difficult for a big star to retain the goodness of cinema.
"I will tell you what my story will seem like, it is a story of a boy who came to the city of dreams, struggled, lost his parents early in life, became a big star without having a Bollywood godfather. Which will be extremely boring. It won't work until I flop and do something legendary that is so controversial that people get shocked. My biopic will be boring without my controversies and I'm the only one who knows them," SRK smiled without revealing much.
