SHAHRUKH KHAN’s speech at Yale: I can’t fix my age – am I 45 or 15?

ROAD TO SUCCESS

Journeys can be defined by age and time or even by destinations, as most often they are. But I feel it is hard for me to tell the story of my life in those terms, because the concept of time has always eluded me.The day my father died seemed longer than my entire childhood. The day I felt my first success seemed fleeting, hour-long, not long enough perhaps. I wondered where it went. Even the cycle of time confounds me. I work till dark, until sunrise on most days and fall asleep as the world awakens to light. My friends call me an owl. I like to think of myself as Batman – the prince of darkness.

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 had so much fun collecting the action figures of my last film (Ra.One) that none of the critical reviews tanking it mattered to me.

As for my destination, I don’t think I ever knew one. I walk, I run in the direction of my dreams. Things change along the way, people change, I change, the world changes, even my dreams change. I don’t have a place to arrive, I just keep doing what I know how to do, the best that I can do it. I’ll probably end up a deluded geriatric in a wheelchair wearing a cape and tights, imagining my own flight out of this world, but of course with a young girl in my arms.
