There are not many actors in Bollywood who are able to match Shah Rukh Khan’s spontaneity with regards to sense of humour. The charismatic actor, who always speaks his mind, seemed to be part of several controversies this past year. Nonetheless, King Khan feels the media can do away with certain stories in 2013 because they keep repeating themselves.
Currently shooting for Rohit Shetty’s Chennai Express, the actor has attracted buzz for avoiding one-time close friend Arjun Rampal in the recent launch of Dabboo Ratnani’s 2013 calendar.
“With my respect and love, I would like the journalists to take a seat at the outset of the entire year and choose which stories to bury for good. The rule should state in bold letters: Promise karo ki aaj ke baad iss story par kaam nahi karoge… The truth is not just us – people in the film industry – but the readers are tired of reading exactly the same imaginary rivalries over and over,” said Shah Rukh Khan.
He further added that he’ll ask Javed Akhtar to pass through a bill for this effect within the Parliament. “Most of the stories I run into are not only seen embarrassing but additionally lack imagination. Even when film journos are pathetic reporters, they’re brilliant fiction writers. So why wouldn’t you still remain creative and write original imaginative crap?” asked the witty actor.
Lastly, the superstar turns his focus on press conferences where he feels his jokes in many cases are misunderstood. “I’d like to attend a press event and never get asked the way the four Khans – no, actually five, since Kareena is another Khan! – are working hard on messing the good life of each other. So when I reply in jest, unnecessary rows are made. Actually, I’ve even stopped joking at such places,” said SRK.
