When Superstar Shah Rukh Khan arrived at the Agenda Aaj Tak 2013 arena, what transpired was pure entertainment. The actor who’s still reeling from the success of his film ‘Chennai Express’, said, “I have a dream to make a Rs.10,000 crore film”.
Lady luck has been more than generous to the super star. So when he talks about success, everyone sits up and listens. Khan says, “If you want to be successfull - dont eat food, dont relax, there is nothing like healthy living, good living. You have to be tense if you want to be successful. You cannot be restful and at peace if you want to be successful”.
The actor who’s known success for a long time says, “You have to sacrifice what you like”. He later added, a bit ruefully, “I feel jealous of people who are relaxed”.
On Salman Khan
When asked about his arch rival Salman comment on him, Khan replied, “I don’t think I am a romantic hero, but if Salman says, I might be”.
When talking about the success of his film Chennai Express and whether he’d like to make more such films, the actor quipped, “I am doing what I like doing and dream to make a Rs.10,000 crore film someday”.
On wife Gauri Khan
King Khan’s wife Gauri keeps him grounded, clearly. Of that he says, “I make better films but my wife says I’m delusional”.
On his son Abram
"He gives me a lot of happiness. And I’m glad he has dimples."
On his age
While most Bollywood actors are getting older, their actresses are getting younger. Shah Rukh included. When told the same thing, Khan smiled and said, “When I start looking like 50, I will start working with actresses like Juhi, Madhuri, and Sridevi”.
On the fairer sex
Always a ladies’ man, a charming Shah Rukh never fails to impress. He said, “I respect women. I don’t abuse in front of them. I don’t show aggression in front of women either”. The star’s deifnition of a real man? “One who is in touch with his feminity”.
On being labelled ‘arrogant’
Khan claims he’s anything but. He says, “I think it is a defence mechanism that celebs think that nothing will happen to them. But I want to thank all of you you for making me the star that I am today. I feel privileged to be a part of this country”.
Humility is easily one of King Khan’s traits, but he still cheekily added, “I enjoy being a star. I would give my left hand and right hand to live this life again. Unashamedly, I am happy and love being who I am”.
