Mahesh Babu’s controversial statement for not working with Bollywood is now a topic of discussion in both B-Town as well as South Industry. While some respect his decision, many are trolling the South star for being abusive and arrogant. Amidst all these mishaps, a video of Shahrukh Khan’s befitting reply to a question is now going viral on the internet.
During the promotions of the upcoming film Sarkar Vaari Pata, Mahesh Babu, who was in conversation with Telugu media, was questioned about his Hindi debut. Responding to this, he had said, ‘I got a lot of offers in Hindi, but I don’t think they can afford me. I don’t want to waste my time working in an industry that can’t stand me. The stardom and respect I get here [in the South] It is huge, so I never really thought of leaving my industry and going to any other industry. I have always thought of doing films and becoming big. My dream is coming true now and I couldn’t be happier.”
This comment of Mahesh Babu has angered many members of Bollywood as well as the fans. Now in the midst of this, an old video of Shahrukh Khan interacting with the media is going viral on Reddit. The video shows Shah Rukh politely answering questions from media personnel on his Hollywood debut.
The video begins with a reporter asking, “Mr Shah Rukh Khan, you are the greatest star of Bollywood, but what about? Hollywood?.. Have you ever planned to work in Dream Factory? To this question Shahrukh replied, ‘My English is not good. If they give me the role of a dumb person who probably doesn’t speak…” the actor continued, “I mean I’m not trying to be humble but I think, I’m 42, I’m younger Hoon Brown, I don’t have any particular USP as an actor, I don’t have any specialties as an actor, I don’t know Kung-Fu, I don’t dance Latin Salsa, I’m not tall enough. I think no matter my age in the western world, I’ve seen some recent movies in Europe, I’ve also seen a lot of movies you call the dream factory. I feel like there’s no place for me, no room for me because I don’t think I’m that talented. I want to continue working in India and hope to take Indian cinema to the world. That’s my ambition.”
Oh, isn’t he a true gentleman!
