He speaks with calm :
While watching his interviews, I really get shocked at his relax behavior. He
gives fabulous cool answer even to hot controversial questions. He speaks so
well with his charachteristic wit. Once in an interview, he said,
“When a movie flops, we find hundreds of excuses, rights from the color of
one’s socks to the Great Wall of China.”
His Informed Attitude :
His attitude is well-informed. Whenever he speaks about something, he’s
something really worth-sharing in his mind. He’s got a knowledge about what
he talks about. Even when he makes movies, he collects background
compulsory knowledge-base behind that movie. If you will question him
about his super-hero flick Ra.One, he’ll answer to your question quite
technically but in very easy language.
High Passion :
The man keeps his passion high, always. Passion in someone’s life is as must as
having a key to start a vehicle. You’re to ignite your talent with key of ‘your
passion’ to drive your life. So higher the passion is, higher will be the chance of
getting goal achieved and SRK knows it very well. Developing a six-pack in his
40s for Dard-e-Disco in Om Shanti Om is an example of his passion. Recent
super-hero sci-fi flick Ra.One is also a monument of his high passion;
otherwise this was really not possible to make it in Bollywood town.
His Killer Enthusiasm :
Whenever some of his co-workers are interviewed, his enthusiasm is talked
about with much eager. Enthusiastic people are more likely to be successful; as
they replace pessimism with optimism. You must have watched out Shahrukh
Khan’s enthusiasm at IPL Season 5; the man was just out of control because of
happiness he got when his KKR (Kolkatta Knight Riders) won the final.
Up-to-dated SRK :
He keeps himself uptodated about latest technology. He’s an e-book-reader, a
gadget-user, video-game-lover . This is why he’s well-informed and educated.
He was also one of the few B-town people who immediately realized the
importance of micro blogging platform Twitter and social network Facebook.
He uses his twitter account time-to-time whenever necessary.
Family Guy :
He’s a family guy and the world knows this reality. Whenever he’s interviewd,
he looks for chance to speake of his son, daughter, wife and most probably his
parents who’d left this world in 1990. He lived many years without his parents
in the age when someone needs them badly. But he has never blamed nature or
some other reasons. He just went on his way to success. He often says that he’d
wish his movies to be so big that his parents watch them from Heaven. Family
is a boundage to keep us unite. Only because of family, we feel that we’re not
alone. And SRK knows it better.
The Perfect Father :
He’d rather be known as the best dad in the world than a megastar. Seeing his
relationship with both kids, Aryan and Suhana definitely proves this.
ShahRukh believes that you should treat your kids like your friends, according
to an interview, “I love my children not because they are my children but
because I have garnered a friendship with them. I am realizing this… as they
are getting older, they are my greatest friends. I think my mental age is
between 12 to 14, so it is nice to have two friends that I can ever have.”
Started from the bottom :
Shah Rukh Khan was a middle-class Delhi boy who turned up in Mumbai with
just Rs 1,500 in his pocket and worked his way to becoming one of the world’s
most powerful men today. Struggle and effort create interesting tales and
respect, unlike those who had Daddy’s funds to help them.
Shahrukh Khan is my favorite Indian industry movie-star. He’s recently
completed his 20 years in Indian Film Industry and proved himself the true
‘King Khan of Bollywood’ with awesome performance in 70 plus movies.
I Feel blessed and grateful that I got an opportunity to meet him personally .
