Superstar Shah Rukh Khan is thankful for being conferred with the ‘King of Bollywood’ title, and feels humbled to have gained respect from peers and fans alike after being in the industry all these years. Recently, Salman Khan called SRK as the King of Bollywood.
When asked to comment, Shah Rukh said, “We all are kind to each other. We respect each other. I think what we have achieved (in our career) and I will include myself also in it.. I think… whatever we have earned (name) is due to our hard work. We have been entertaining for many years.”
“We don’t disrespect anyone. So all these titles and numbers doesn’t really matter. I think we all just hope our next film does well. So if you ask me a question like this I am thankful to anyone who thinks of me like this anywhere in the world. God has been kind to me,” he said without taking Salman’s name.
SRK also chose to dodge another question on Salman’s ‘Kick’. The equation between the two Khans has always provided fodder to gossip mills since their fight on Katrina Kaif’s birthday bash and their eventual patch up at an Iftaar party here. But the two superstars have never spoken ill about each other and have wished success and happiness for each other.
Shah Rukh was talking at a promotional event last night of an upcoming film ‘Mad About Dance’ (MAD), a venture which he is supporting.
