King Khan has always been obliged towards the love he’s been receiving from the audience ever since he began acting in Bollywood. The film fraternity welcomed him with open arms and has fulfilled all his dreams till today.
Recently, when SRK received the 4th National Yash Chopra’s Memorial Award, he said, “I have been working for the last 25 years and all I know is to wear make-up in the morning and do my job (of acting)… Sometimes I get it right more often than not get it wrong. When I came to Mumbai I had lost my mother, father and my sister was unwell. I had no family. The Indian film industry adopted me and today I have a family of more than a billion people. I am thankful to everyone. For me, it is one of the most important evenings of my life…To be honest, because like I said to begin with the set of people (guests) who are here talking nice things about me, showing me a documentary (of mine), none of this is possible if it wasn’t for all the love, kindness, gentleness and enthusiasm that everyone gives me whenever I meet them.”
The 51-year-old veteran actor has collaborated with the Yash Chopra Banner and has delivered several super hits including Darr, Dil to Pagal hai, Veer Zaara, Jab Tak Hai Jaan and shares an equally warm relationship with Chopra’s wife, Pamela Chopra. “Pam aunty is like a surrogate mother to me…I have grown up with her. Everyone who works with Yash Ji knows he is like their child. I had the fortune of working with him in the maximum number of films including his last movie.”
This is why we call him King Khan – Indian Cinema is really blessed to have him!
