Bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khan revealed in an interview to a leading news organisation about the pieces of advice he gave his daughter Suhana Khan if she came across boys who behaved like his movie characters. Considering himself to be anything like the character he portrayed in his movies, SRK said that his wife Gauri would probably throw him out of his house if he ever sang a song for her with arms wide open in his signature style.
In the interview with Indian Express, the Zero star shared that he told Suhana, “If a guy meets you and says, ‘Rahul, naam toh suna hoga’, he’s a stalker. If a boy looks at you across a room at a party and says, ‘Aur paas, aur paas’, go kick him in the shins. But in the film, if I’m able to activate an element of innocence and make it attractive, the role gets reinvented by itself.”
Known as the king of romance and for his iconic roles in movies like DDLJ, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, K3G and Veer Zara, Shah Rukh said, “What is the essence of romance? To make somebody feel it at a particular moment in time. Personally, I’m not like that. If I stood with my arms open and sang a song in front of my wife, probably she’d throw me out of the house.”
The actor added a feather to his acting success in Bollywood with his recently released movie, Zero, where he was applauded for essaying the character of a dwarf-sized man from Meerut. Even though the movie failed to rake high numbers at Box Office, Khan and his co-stars Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma received accolades for portraying challenging roles. The movie was directed by Aanand L. Rai.
