I am Extremely One-Sided, Perhaps Even Selfish Person : Shah Rukh Khan. Shah Rukh Khan talks about relationships in his life and how he behaves in them.
Shah Rukh said, “I am pathetic with relationships. I am so pathetic that I am comic.If somebody said what did you say to him or her when he or she said this, my answer would shock you. They are like but how could you? and I say, I don’t know how else to relate to this. I am very bad with relationships, I am awful.”
Unlike his characters on screen who travel continents to profess love, Shah Rukh prefers to hide his emotions. “I am extremely one-sided, perhaps even selfish. Actually, I am very detached. I am demotional – emotional and detached, I don’t know how it works. I won’t be able to say anything that I’ve done in my films to a girl, or even in relationships. I am extremely closeted, introverted, shy, reclusive and completely shut off about my emotions.”
The 51-year-year-old star is aware of the absurdities of the grand romantic gestures in his films and he would not advice his fans to replicate them in real life — be it the famous train sequence from Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge or proposing a girl on her wedding day in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.
“I am not telling you to run after a train and climb it. In real life, I would stop the train, or say let’s meet at the next station. I would never do it in real life, putting my hand out, beating her would-be-husband. In Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, the girl is getting married to a guy downstairs, I walk upto her and say ‘I love you’. Now that’s extremely weird,” he further added.
For the film, Shah Rukh is sporting a tattoo on his chest. It is again something that he would never do in real life. “I am freaking scared of tattoo needles. I am an extremely normal guy,” said the Raees actor.
Shah Rukh will next be seen in Imtiaz Ali’s Jab Harry Met Sejal. Also featuring Anushka Sharma, the film is scheduled to release on August 4.
