Shah Rukh Khan : Lead actors get more than their due
"I am little embarrassed and humbled sometimes when I am called King Khan. I am happy that people call me that. I'm in a happy space where a lot of people have worked very hard to make me look as good as I am," said Shah Rukh Khan along with the team of Always Kabhi Kabhi comprising of Satyajit Dubey, Giselli Monteiro, Ali Fazal and Zoa Morani. "The Film Industry is a job where I think too much credit is given to too few people, mostly the heroes of the film. Dilwale (Dulhania Le Jayenge) becomes a hit and even now, I don't know after how many years of it running, it's a Shah Rukh Khan film. It really is not a Shah Rukh Khan film. The lead actors do get the credit more than is due to them," Shah Rukh said.
Before the interview started, producer Shah Rukh Khan interacted with the young guns of Roshan Abbas' Always Kabhi Kabhi and gave them interesting tips on acting and camera angles. Even during the other interviews, it was very apparent that SRK coaxed the budding newcomers to make their presence felt as much as possible and not be overawed by his huge presence. Khan says that he has seen the film and liked the honesty and the team spirit. "There's a huge learning curve for me as a romantic hero after seeing what they've done. Any romantic film I do, I'll do it differently," he said.
With Ra.One and Don 2 slated to release later this year, is Shah Rukh Khan hoping to end the year on a big high as an actor? "I'm past that age of thinking of big big highs at the end of the year. My thing is always a humble offering with a lot of confidence," SRK said.
