Shahrukh Khan was on NDTV’s special show ‘India Questions Shahrukh Khan’ with Prannoy Roy. The superstar spoke about his college days in Delhi, his superstardom, his upcoming film Chennai Express and a lot more.
Some excerpts from the interview
“I have never thought I have done (achieved) anything yet which is worthwhile to be remembered by me at least. I want to keep it simple, I want to keep it straightforward and by the grace of all the audiences, by the grace of directors and producers and of course God, I think I have got everything” said SRK in response to a question when about his most Noteworthy achievement.
“Every morning I wake up, and the first thought that comes to my mind and I say it, on a Friday if my film has released, which is the main work I do and if it hasn’t done well on Monday I get up and say ‘Oh my god, I need to make it better’ because I let down people who came to see it, so I need to work harder. On Friday, if it does well, I get scared that ‘oh my god I have made such a big hit now, I need to make it bigger so I have to work harder’. So, it’s so simple and it’s the most cliched thing in the world that you just work harder.” on what makes him see beyond success, having achieved almost everything that he dreamt of.
“I’d play a 70 year old, I would play a 20 year old. I will have to use minimum, minor visual effects but I will still look that young. At heart, I am very silly and 17, that’s so I get into trouble. So by heart I can play much younger” on being asked if he would like to continue playing younger roles or now that he is 47 and turning 50 soon, he is slowly moving towards playing aged men.
