Here are the 5 highlights from AIB Podcast feat. Shah Rukh Khan part 2!
When Shah Rukh Khan was considered ill-mannered!
The part 2 of this podcast started with a question to SRK about 3 things that people believe about stars which are actually not true. Of course, SRK had the most amusing reply to this. The first thing that Shah Rukh stated is that like ordinary people, even stars wake up looking ugly in the morning. He especially mentioned the lovemaking scenes shown in Bollywood films wherein the stars are shown kissing each other early in the morning after a passionate night. Shah Rukh says that this is disgusting because mouth smells in the morning. The next thing he said that people feel that just because stars make a lot of money they are ill-mannered and corrupt. He cited the example of his recent train journey to Delhi for the promotions of 'Raees' wherein he was sitting with his feet on train berth. People assumed it to be ill-mannered, but SRK was like 'I sit in my house like this, how is it ill-mannered'?
Special tips from Amitabh Bachchan
Following this, SRK revealed two most important tips that Amitabh Bachchan gave to him. One is to check his zippers every time he goes live in front of the crowd to perform and the second thing was to apologise for every wrong thing you do. He said all of this while mimicking Big B and it was the best moment ever!
When SRK doubted his own ability to be versatile!
Even though he is the god of romantic films, SRK has tried his hands on varied genres and characters. But it really pisses him off when people just compare his new characters to his earlier ones. For example, somebody told SRK that his character in 'Raees' reminded him of SRK's 'DON'. This sometimes makes SRK question his own ability of being an actor. he says, "Am I the most pathetic actor in the world?... Am I that boyfriend who is the last to know that his girlfriend is two-timing him?... Am I that guy who does not know that I can't act to save my life?... Am I the same in every film year after year?"He then clarified that for the first time he has done a 'Gangster' genre film.
His pairing with younger actresses!
Many a times, SRK comes across this question that he is working with actresses half his age. To this, SRK's reaction is that he can't help it as there are only young actresses working in Bollywood currently. He says, "I can't send them back home and say first grow up."He further states, "I can't tell my director, umar dekh ke liya karo, talent chodo."
The one thing that pisses SRK too much is receiving abuses on Twitter and that too written in ALL CAPS. Worst is when abusers spell the gaalis incorrectly. This pinches the Delhiite within him. Hence, for this he wants to start an organisation to save gaalis from being spelled wrong. The statement that he made here making us go ROFL is, "U ko pronounce karnda padhta hai, double O mein to baat hi khatam ho jaati hai." But hats off to Shah Rukh who says that he can recognise his followers on Twitter. Be it people who adore him or the people who abuse him regularly.
