Mumbai: Though Shah Rukh Khan is one of the most celebrated actors in Bollywood and has retained his superstar status for the past 25 years, he continues to be creative in his choice of films. Regardless of the misses, SRK always finds a way to get back in the game.
The actor says, “If all the challenges and negatives had not happened in my life that made me feel like a zero, I would never have achieved what I have today. When I look back at the last 25 years of my life, I feel that the stage of being a nobody was good. Even if you have been successful for very long, you have to figure out how you will get up and get back into the game,” he added.
SRK, who was last seen in Zero, a film that didn’t do too well at the box office, recalls how the failure of Fan affected him. “The failure of Fan was sad for me. It deflated me but I never allow my failure to defeat me. It simply makes me want to get up and do my best all over again,” said the Darr actor.
He further added, “When I made Ra One and it did not do well, people thought I will stop making VFX films again. But look at me, I’m still continuing to do it.”
The superstar, who hails from a non-filmy background and is often referred to as an outsider in the industry, says he was always willing to give this industry his all. Shah Rukh Khan says, “I never thought I would be an actor one day. I never had a Godfather in the industry. I was a nobody when I arrived here and since I had nothing to lose and everything to win, I decided I would give this industry everything I had.”...
