Talking about his favourite film, he said, “My favourite film is ‘Paheli’, ‘Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani’. The film that goes a little wrong (kharab) that should be your favourite and you should be proud of these films.”
Shah Rukh feels fortunate to be part of Indian cinema at a time when it is going through several changes.
“There are so many wonderful filmmakers and actors who are edgy and want to take risk, chances and take Indian cinema forward, the extent to which Indian cinema has shifted from just being a trend and fad internationally to becoming part and parcel (there),” Shah Rukh said.
“Bollywood was just a cool word earlier and it was all about singing and dancing… now when I travel abroad and talk about Bollywood, there is a sensibility and understanding of different mode of storytelling which is coming out of India.”
Shah Rukh started his acting career with TV shows like ‘Fauji’ and ‘Circus’.
Apart from doing negative roles in films like ‘Darr’, ‘Baazigar’, and ‘Anjaam’ during his early days in Bollywood, he acted in memorable films like ‘Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’, ‘Dil To Pagal Hai’, ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’, ‘Devdas’, ‘Swades’, ‘Chak De India’, ‘Chennai Express’ among others.
