Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, king of Bollywood fans for over two decades, claims he never takes money for acting in the films and fairly demands it when he is endorsing other things. What this celebrity has said is only unbelievable as all are aware of the amount they deal with for each movie. Did Shah Rukh actually mean it? Let’s find out on what circumstances he made this statement. Here’s the entire story.
Superstar Shah Rukh said, “I never take money for acting in films. I only charge fees for endorsements, for events and live shows. I only tell producers to pay me whatever they wish, if the films do well (at the box office).” He made this statement on TV show ‘Aap Ki Adalat’, which was aired on India TV.
He further said, “I don’t take acting in films as business. This is my greatest thing that I can do to act in films. My biggest hope in my life is that more and more people watch my films and be happy, and one day I will make a film in India,” he said. Now whatever he justified was his part, now his fans can actually make out what’s true and what’s not.
Shah Rukh also spoke about his children. He said, “My children are much sorted.” ‘Chennai Express’ actor said, “I am a big nationalist in such matters… which people of the world can watch and say that this film was made in India. So I want to be a part of that.”
When asked by host Rajat Sharma whether he had stated 22 years ago in ‘Aap Ki Adalat’ that he was a better actor than megastar Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh answered, “That was my overconfidence as a youth.22 years later I have now realised that I had then no idea what makes a great actor that was because of lack of education. My arrogance was sheer childishness. Even now at the age of 50, I sometimes appear to be childish.”
His recent movie ‘Fan’ is onscreen which released on last Friday.
