Superstar Shah Rukh Khan who gave us memorable films like Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Mohabbatein, Veer Zaara, Swades and so many more, have a special place in everyone's heart. With his films, the actor taught us love and also gave us characters like Rahul, Raj, Veer, Rizwan and more in the past. Needless to say, SRK has done justice to every act that he has taken up. SRK who had not only impressed us with his movies but wherever he goes, he makes sure to enthral fans with his witty sense of humour and his good-natured banter.
As he completes 27 years in Bollywood, we take you down the memory lane so that you can take a look at some of his fun interviews, inspiring speeches and fun exchanges with wife Gauri Khan.
Here is why Gauri Khan married Shah Rukh Khan
Shah Rukh, in an old interview with veteran actor, Farida Jalal, talks about this wedding with Gauri. Talking about it, he said, “My wife married me because I cook well”. He went on to add how people raised an eyebrow when they came to know that he is a Muslim. “Okay Gauri, put on your burkha and let’s read the namaaz now,” he said to taunt them.
When a reporter called him Salman Khan
The superstar who hosted TED Talks India - Nayi Soch in 2017 attended a press conference for the same. A reporter who kept calling him ‘Salman’ got the shock of her life when SRK gave her an epic response and called her ‘Deepika’. We must say that not all can match Shah Rukh Khan's sass!
SRK pranked wife Gauri on their honeymoon
At a recent style and fashion based award function, Shah Rukh opened up about his honeymoon and how did he pranked his Gauri by telling her that he would take her to Paris when in reality, he took her to Darjeeling during one of his film shoots.
SRK self-deprecating humour at TED Talks 2017
At TED Talks 2017 (Vancouver), King Khan talked about selling dreams and left everyone in splits when he said, “Just before I came here, I decided to take a good, hard look at my face. And I realised that I am beginning to look like the wax statute of me at Madame Tussaud’s.” It is heartwarming to see a star of his stature mocking himself on a global platform.
SRK’s good-natured banter with critics
The actor, who was the surprise guest at the recently-concluded Critics’ Choice Awards, took a dig at the ‘complicated vocabulary’ used by film critics. In his signature style, he further roasted them by giving the award function one-and-a-half star rating.
We at the Box Office India congratulate Shah Rukh Khan for finishing 27 golden years in the industry. Here’s to many more!
