By BollywoodMDB Team - February 26, 2018
Megastar Shah Rukh Khan is ruling the Hindi film industry soon after he made his debut. Started with grey roles, in no time he turned the face of romance. The actor is lesser called by his name and more often he is referred as ‘megastar’, ‘biggest star of the world’ and ‘Badshah Khan’, but now, the 52 years old actor wants to be a legend. Shah Rukh was here on Saturday at the fourth edition of Global Business Summit to speak on ‘Bollywood's Digital push: What it means for the stakeholders’.
SRK, who has been in the Hindi film industry for over two decades, stressed that he really wants to be a legend. "I really want to be a legend,” he said.
"Unfortunately, there are no articles or books on how to be a legend. So, I rummage through my personal library... I found a book on the history of human kind called 'Sapiens' and going through the book I found that the only reason homo sapiens have dominated the rest of the species is because of one thing -- because we gossip," added Badshah Khan.
"I am 26 years old in the film industry which is half my lifetime really. From here on I am going to spend time in the world of cinema than the outside of it... I realised I should do away with the tag of being a superstar instead I should work towards tag of being a legend," he said.
He added: "No megastar... as egoistic and self-centered like me will fade away into the past without trying to wedge his or her foot into the door to the future. So even I want to put myself into the future of cinema like I have been in the past 25 years."
He also said there will be a big change between the viewer and how an individual watches the film. He added, "Right now the movie that attracts us, it's a momentary catch of emotions or expression but soon movies will itself become an experience. They will be interactive."
