The one actor who has defined super stardom despite being an outsider & making it on his own has been the one and only Shah Rukh Khan. Starting from television and then, working in films, King Khan has come a long long way proving time and again that he is extra special in many ways. Easily one of the biggest stars right now, Khan has went on to some amazing films, a few disasters and box-office duds but has always remained a superstar no matter what. Recently, the actor was seen speaking at Auto Expo, New Delhi, and went on to talk about how he selects movies & on which factors it depends.
“Everybody has their own system of doing a film, why they do, how they do. I feel a film,” the actor said when he was asked about doing a socially relevant film like Toilet : Ek Prem Katha which Akshay Kumar recently did.
“I don’t go searching for a film. I have been a producer for 15 years, I have never produced a film that I think I should do. I think films choose me.”
“Sometimes they (films) go wonderfully right, sometimes they go fantastically bad and I am ok with it. If I don’t keep that part of my life fluid, whatever level of artistic, I can’t wake up every morning and keep on acting,” SRK continued.
“I can’t do it (acting) as a job, I am not saying others are doing it. Different strokes for different folks,” he added.
Khan also remembered how he was criticized for choosing Chak De India initially and later, it became a cult movie and it was history!
He said, “My father used to play hockey. No one knew I played hockey. Someone offered me a film on hockey, everyone said it was the worst film being made. There is no heroine, the girls are unknown, the songs are bad and I look awful with a beard. It became ‘Chak De! India’.”
“It doesn’t mean I will do another film on hockey…There are things that appeal to me organically and sentimentally, so I do my films… We all sell fantasies in business, in cars and in my line of work,” concluded King Khan.
Well, we love the choices you make Mr Khan and are totally looking forward eagerly for Zero.
