Actor Shahrukh Khan during a press conference on his 50th birthday, in Mumbai, on Nov 2, 2015. Bollywood ‘Badshah’ Shahrukh Khan, who celebrated his 50th birthday on Monday, promised to be always in high spirits and keep entertaining his fans.
“On my birthday, I promise to be in high spirits always and keep entertaining my fans. I would like to stay humorous to my admirers,” Shahrukh, who is known for his jovial and witty nature, said at an event to celebrate his birthday.
On why girls were “madly in love” with him, he said: “The only reason women like me is because I respect them in a way that they fall in love with me. I always show graciousness to every woman I meet in my life.”
The “Dilwale” actor also spoke about his co-star Deepika Padukone, with whom he has given hits like “Om Shanti Om”, “Chennai Express” and “Happy New Year”.
This time, Deepika’s film “Bajirao Mastani” is clashing with his film “Dilwale”.
“I can say Deepika is a lucky charm and it’s not good that both our films are coming together but I think in this period both can do well,” he said.
The actor also released the second trailer of his upcoming film “Fan”, as a gesture of “return gift” for his admirers.
About this film, he said: “‘Fan’ is the most special film for me till now. Hope I have done it right. I aspire to make five radical films in my career which I feel proud about when I show it to my children. I think ‘Fan’ is one of them.”
“I never thought someday I would be called King of Bollywood. This industry has showered me with so much love. I have got more than double what I had in my early phases. If tomorrow I am not remembered, it’s okay, but if my work is remembered, that’s enough for me,” he said.
The actor is currently busy shooting for Rohit Shetty’s “Dilwale”, and said he celebrated his birthday in a very simple way.
“Right now, shooting has not completed for ‘Dilwale’. After that we will be partying hard. I didn’t receive any gift from my family as we believe in simple celebrations,” he said.
