Shah Rukh Khan has always been popular among the ladies. Not only for his killer acting skills, but for his philanthropist nature and wit that always get the women going! In a recent interview with a leading daily, Shah Rukh Khan won our hearts yet again when he told us about his choice of films and why he does them.
“I have mostly done films where the woman has a great role. I have never done films that are totally about me. It might not be completely female-oriented. But if you see DDLJ, Darr, Anjaam, Baazigar, Dil To Pagal Hai, Chak De India, My Name Is Khan and even Chennai Express, the ladies do play the hero. Very few heroes will get their car toppled down and shot at point-blank like in Dilwale. However strange and outlandish it may be. I’m okay and really comfortable if women take the lead in every aspect of life. Whether it’s business, management, creativity or in love, I think women should take the lead.”
“I have no awkwardness saying the film belongs to XYZ because I know my own bone and I know how to gnaw at it, I know how to bury it and then take it and gnaw at it again. I know my bone! Who I am, whether I’m the best or not, whether I’m good enough or not, I am who I am! And that you can’t take away from me. We take a whole lifetime to understand ourselves and even then, that learning won’t be complete. Just be yourself. It’s better to be unique than perfect, even if uniqueness is marred. I’m extremely marred in every which way, I’m quite damaged like that but it’s me and it’s damaged. Whether it makes me happy or sad is my call. I don’t need to repair it according to somebody else’s standing.”
Oh, Shah Rukh Khan – is there any way you’re not perfect?
