Shah Rukh Khan, the king of Romance, who has the success on his feet never shy away from taking the onus of the failure. In an interview with Deccan Chronicle, Shah Rukh Khan spoke about films, failures and how he treats his films like his daughter and feels that if you are the king, you should have the choice to do whatever you feel is right.

The ‘Zero’ actor said, “I have succeeded with things that I never knew would succeed. I also feel that if you really are the king, you should have the choice to make your own choices. A king without choices is not a king at all.”

King Khan further said, “If I believe I am a king, then I will exercise my choice to do what I like to do. I am only exercising my choice to do what I like to do. I believe that if I am king, and don’t take chances I will remain one just for namesake.”

SRK also said, “I believe you can’t curb a writer with a limit on the number of pages he or she is allowed to write. As a producer, if I would like to do as much as possible, there is no one really to stop us from making key decisions even though the company tells me, many times, that I am over-doing things.”

King Khan also noted that he treats every film like his daughter and just like people spend on their daughter’s wedding, even he spends on his films. “I believe every film I do is like my daughter. People spend lavishly on their daughter’s wedding, so why can’t I spend on my film? Let whatever I am doing for my daughter, be nice, and inshallah, the money will follow,” he remarked.

It is to be noted that the statement comes days after his film ‘Zero’ did not perform well at the box office and wasn’t received well by critics and fans, alike.

On the work front, Shah Rukh Khan will next be seen in the biopic on the life of astronaut Rakesh Sharma which is tentatively titled ‘Salute’ and the film is scheduled to go on the floors by February 2019.
