The quintessential Baadshah of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan may have reached at the top in the film industry, but the actor is still lonely at times in real life. In his upcoming film ‘Dear Zindagi’, SRK plays the role of a therapist to Alia Bhatt’s character, and the actor confessed that when it comes to his own personal life, he keeps his feelings to himself and is unable to express his innermost emotions.
In a recent interview with a daily, the actor said, I am very cloistered, very shell like. I feel awkward talking about my personal feeling. As a matter of fact, (when) a friend does talk to me about my personal feelings, I get very awkward. I don’t know how to behave (when people talk about personal issues), I am very shy. I don’t talk to the closest people I have about my feelings. And if somebody brings it up… like Karan (filmmaker Karan Johar) actually is the closest and he once in London said something to me ‘Bhai you know…’, I said ‘No don’t talk to me about this’. It’s not that I am uncomfortable about my personal feelings, I keep them to myself. Never! I don’t think I will ever seek professional advice unless I am admitted to an asylum because people think so and force me to, I have never sought any advice.”
He also added that he has not outlet for venting out his personal issues. Says SRK, “Yes, my head does become busy with a lot of thoughts. I just live with it. It makes you little lonely, makes you a little sad. No, I don’t even go on a little roof and scream out, I have no venting for my personal issues and emotions except for the fact that I am an actor. I come on screen and I take it out. There are days when I cry on screen and that could be actual tears but I don’t make a big deal out of it. Other days I just could be very happy on a scene and that could be my personal feeling.”
SRK also confessed that he has never really spoke to his kids about relationships. I don’t talk to my children about relationships. I don’t talk to them about anything that they don’t wish to talk with me. So if they call me and they come and say ‘listen I was wanting to know this papa’ I will talk to them about it but I would never say sit down I need to talk to you about the birds and the bees or talk to you about relationships”, said King Khan.
So, you see that just like a normal human being, SRK too has had his bad days. On the work front, SRK and Alia Bhatt starrer ‘Dear Zindagi’ helmed by Gauri Shinde is up for release tomorrow.
