In 2005 the Government of India honoured Shahrukh Khan with the Padma Shri for his contribution to Indian cinema
The actor faced the ire of the Shiv Sena in 2012 when he expressed that even Pakistani players should be included in the Indian Premiere League. The actor later faced several problems as the Shiv Sena threatened to ban his film My Name His Khan which was about to release around the same time.
He was honoured by the Yale University with the Chubb Fellow Award which is one of the most prestigious award for leadership.
The actor was as a kid was very weak in Mathematics. But he excelled in sports and subjects like Hindi and Biology.
Khan did his Mass Communication from Jamia Millia Islamia university, New Delhi.
His bungalow Mannat located at Bandstand Bandra, is one of the most famous landmarks in Mumbai. Hordes of people gather outside his house just to get a glimpse of the actor.
“Fame and love is a gift from God and for that reason alone I feel richer than 10 Bill Gates put together”
“But at the end of it all, you come to Bombay, and there’s a side of you that nobody’s seen. People now say, he’s stylish, intelligent, etc. Nobody sees that basically I’m quite a cheapster from Delhi.”
“Sometimes girls say they like me. I don’t know what to say, so before she thinks I’m foolish or asexual, I just say something funny. The best way to kill romance is to joke.”
“I don’t mind people criticising my films. But when things get personal, I don’t like it. I know for every 50 people in the industry who don’t like my film for personal reasons, there are 30 million people out there who love it.”
“There are times I feel extremely lonely and talking to my dogs seems the only option”
“Age is not my forte either. I still cannot fix my own – am I 45 or 15? If I could, would I be romancing girls one third my age who normally would call me ‘Uncle’?”
“I momentarily lose my ability to give up and close up. And here’s where the trick is – when you are in this place of despair, where the world is staring you down into yourself, there’s only one thing you can do to survive: hang on to who you are inside.”
