Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan, who has featured in two remakes, said that his proudest moment would be when someone would remake one of his original films. The actor was talking to reporters during the launch of Filmfare’s new magazine to celebrate 100 years of Indian Cinema.
On his remakes
I did two iconic films – one is Dilip Kumar’s ‘Devdas’ and the other one is Amitabh Bachchan’s ‘Don’. I never chose my films. Films and directors chose me. Sanjay Leela Bhansali told me ‘there is something in your eyes’ and then he asked me to do ‘Devdas’. Farhan Akhtar thought I could play the character of ‘Don’. But I am not thinking about remaking any film now.
On what would make him proud
Hopefully, a time will come when somebody will remake one of my original films and that will be a great achievement and proud moment for me

I had a marvellous time shooting for the photo shoot with Dilip Kumar and Amitabh Bachchan. I feel my life is complete now. When I was shooting with Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu, Saira ji came to me and said if she had a son he would have looked like me. They have seen so much in life and you can see that in their eyes. It’s a wonderful moment that they have given me.
Dilip Kumar, who couldn’t come for the launch of the magazine owing to health reasons, sent his best wishes through a message.
