‘I am here to rule, don’t mess with this’ – Shahrukh Khan

In an interview with CNN-IBN’s Rajeev Masand, Shahrukh Khan had several interesting things to say. Below are some excerpts.

Recently, Ranbir Kapoor had said that he is not just competing with actors of his generations but also with stars like Shahrukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan. When Rajeev Masand asks SRK about this, he says “I will be very honest. I don’t say this with any immodesty or self-centered pompousness. I don’t have any competition. I have not come here to compete, I have come here to rule!!”

He also takes a dig at Ranbir Kapoor’s comment when he says “I don’t have a father, grandfather or mother in this industry, who can give me an extra push here in Mumbai.”

“In the last 20 years I have either been wrongly compared to greats like Amitabh Bachchan or youngsters who have done 3 films and I feel really sorry for them. It is unfair to them, like it is unfair for me when I am compared to Mr Bachchan.”

“When an actor or an actress turns around and says I want to beat Shahrukh Khan. Bring it on. That’s absolutely alright. But personally I would say, ‘don’t mess with this’.

SRK also shared a story about his son. When SRK’s mother-in-law asked Aryan whether he’d like to be an actor, he turned around and said “I’d like my dad to continue doing what he is doing, because I like him as an actor. And he’s going to do that for the next 10 – 15 – 20 years… he’s got so much energy. I would not like to be second-best. And as long as my dad is going to be there, I’ll always be second-best.”

SRK then continues to say, that it holds true for “little boy’s who are not my son’s also” referring to Ranbir Kapoor and the younger generation of actors.

Interestingly, he never speaks about his contemporaries or actors of his generation like Aamir or Salman Khan! And more so about Akshay Kumar, who much like SRK, made it on his own in the industry.

Below is the full video of the conversation. Do watch it and tell us what you think. We wonder if this is the very reason why fans of other actors don’t like SRK.

It holds true the other way round too, SRK is someone who has been making such bold statements for years and still living up to it. It’s one thing to say and quite something else to sustain your position right at the top.

This is what I hate about srk.. too much attitude and show off nature.. have you EVER heard Amitabh bachchan or Aamir khan saying all this? Even salman who has carefree attitude has never said I am the best.. I am the biggest superstar.. he always gives credit to his fans for his success..

I am a hrithik fan and he’s too humble.. Don and Kabhi alvida na kehna released in the same year as Dhoom 2 and Krrish.. and hrithiks two films did a lot more business.. but did hrithik ever say he’s better or bigger than SRK? never!

You must have seen SRK’s look when hrithik won best actor at filmfare.. this man is jealous.. he’s too egoistic and pompous..

One word SHAME.

SRK is d best! He says everything truely n doesn’t hide anything. SRK sab kuch saaf aur sach hi bolte hain. Baaki sab actor media ke saamne hero banne ki koshish karte hain. SRK is d real hero..!

Very Inspirational Interview..

Jo bhi industry mein purana hai uska comparison bhi SRK se krte hain..Jo nya aata hai uska bhi comparison SRK se krte hain..

Inshort whole Bwood revolves around him..

He has earned his value to make such comments
