I am a dream come true, says Shah Rukh Khan on PVR Anupam closing ceremony
New Delhi : Actor Shah Rukh Khan has always batted for people to keep their dreams alive as they do come true. The 53-year-old actor was all nostalgic about his days in Delhi and his journey in Bollywood that he shared during the closing ceremony of PVR Anupam, India's first multiplex.
"Some of the things that you don’t think about will happen to you and they are the best things of life. You just don’t know it yet. I don’t want to show off but I’m genuinely a dream come true.
"I’m a lower middle class boy without his parents bound to the city of glamour and become a movie star. The world has showered me with their love. This happens in only dreams but I never thought of it. I haven’t believed it, I am still that Delhi boy," Shah Rukh said.
Talking about Delhi, he claimed that he never feels like a star in Delhi but have to behave like one. “It bores me to be a star that way. I love my job and promise to everybody that as Ajay Bijli and Sanjeev Kumar Bijli keep on making cinema theatres, I’ll keep on making movies to fill them,” he added.
Talking about his first encounter with himself on the theatre, he said, "I found myself so ugly. I had such bad hair. I was doing such bad acting in front of Nana Patekar, Amrita Singh and Juhi Chawla. I took the late 4.15 am flight ticket that our producers used to get for us at 25 per cent off and went to the airport, thinking I can’t work in films."
Shah Rukh said he feels the most nostalgic when he visits his late parents’ resting place. “Whenever I sit in a plane from Mumbai to come to Delhi, I have one thought in my heart that my mom and dad are here. I visit them in their graveyard late at night. When they say I’ve become a Mumbai person, I don’t know how to express it... But as much as I can leave Delhi, Delhi can’t leave me because my parents are here. The biggest memory for me is here,” he said.
