Why has Shahrukh Khan suddenly turned humble?

Believe it or not, the ever-so-pompous King Khan seems to have found his modest streak – he says that he doesn’t know how he reached the top and achieved unbelievable success

Shahrukh Khan is always quick with words, witty and almost always less than modest. The 48-year-old doesn’t shy away from talking about his achievements and his incredible popularity. But it seems as if the commercial success of Chennai Express – and the outrageously bad reviews the movie garnered – has mellowed the King Khan. “I believe in sharing. I believing in making people happy. I never question my directors. I just play my part and I make it work,” said SRK in a recent interview.

For someone who has worked in over 60 films over the span of two decades, what keeps SRK excited? “Those who reach the pinnacle, those who achieve success, they themselves don’t know how they have reached there. So you cannot take credit for your success after achieving it. In fact, you can’t make your kids or your friends learn how to become equally successful, because you yourself don’t know how you got there in the first place. The only thing I believe in is to just do it, without analysing and calculating too much about it in your head,” explained Shahrukh.

Now doesn’t that sound kinda humble for a man who has always believed in living his life on his own terms and achieving what he wanted to – and in talking about it with no false modesty or pretension? You tell us: has King Khan mellowed with age and super-success, or is he simply being philosophical?

    For gods sake please stop it SRK no one knows why you are a star. You´re a terrible actor and an unsocial human being who put his baby son in limelight to promote this pinky winky bad movie Chennai Express. The only thing you can good is marketing and that´s also the answer to this stupid question you´re asking yourself.

      go watch swades,chak de india,MNIK,baazigar,darr or Devdas! and you’ll know who can act and who can’t!
      and it was very baseless of you to say that he used abRAM for Chennai express promotions when infact he never said a word about him in any of the promotional events!
      FYI AbRAM stands for abdullah and ram! and you call him unsocial ??

    Any interview I’ve ever seen with SRK has shown him being very humble and deferential to his costars etc. If he did laud himself it is almost always in jest.

  • Nuzhat

    Whoever has written this article, is he/she new in this profession??? I have always seen him as humble and modest person. Whats wrong wid this reporter?? He always does that makes him happy. He has always said till today dt he wants to see ppl happy and he works to make them happy!! If you feel that he has suddenly changed after a great success then let me tell you, its NOT his first success!! He has given so many successful movies before and he has done all this by himself. He is a self-made superstar! So please stop talking nonsense about him!!

  • Alqaseem

    I love SRK.

  • anonymous

    are you not overanalysing now?? stop hating. just because you have to write dumb articles for a living and get paid a low salary doesn’t mean you should dig up dirt about others who get paid crores for a job they absolutely enjoy. live and let live. he owes you (and nobody) nothing. he just achieved success and you’re jealous.

    there goes the SRK’s PR express in the comments section again. SRK’s statements changes with time and place. For such people we need to look for the actions. He first approaches Ekta and asks them to postpone their release and after seeing that his movie is raking profits, he didn’t keep his words and he stranded them. when his movie does well, he will make it appear through his PR machinery that he is a superstar and his movie was bound to work. the minute the camera is on, he pretends to be ever innocent, but behind the camera, he will play all the dirtiest tricks…

    Age and Experience does mellow every one more and more .,Shah Rukh khan is no exception…and Defitnitely he has grown more humble with time as and when he gets more and more successful He does realise that he alone caanot claim the ownership of his stardom fully.There so many unseen faces too and it a films success is mainly team owrk !!!!!Yes In the past at times Shah Rukh Khan did over do and over react a lot( like the wankhede stadium)incident .But he has realised and corrected his mistakes immediately .Committing mistakes is part of every humans life and he is also a human.What is important is that mistakes should not be repeated often ..So even if had been a little arrogant at times in the past let us forget that all and Let us be happy now that he has growm more humble .

    Have you ever seen any SRK’s Interview before ‘CHENNAI EXPREESS’ period. I dont think so. My recommend for the writer that do analysis before writting anything. I will not gonna come back to this side again to read such crap you guys written.

  • Raza

    He has the same philosophy of success always. Yes at times he has been boisterous about it but never that much. Anybody can be in a different mood and may say over the top things and may not mean that it’s just human. That’s one part of him that makes him so popular and loved by all ages is that he is the same Shahrukh Khan what he was 20 years ago although grown up million times personally and professionally. He has always been grounded and has sound values which speak volumes. He has innate abilities to lead yet follow. The only thing that explains his success is that he is just GIFTED by ALLAH…

    Chennai Express was a fake hit..
    make a Movie
    Distribute it yourself
    buy space in all multiplexes all over india
    and than buy tickets all by your money
    just to prove the point that
    1. you are still king khan,
    2. still most sort after actor,
    3. your movie makes more money than anybody and can cross 200 crore.

    it is just like what he did in past like
    1. Buying awards
    2. Buying Honorary Degrees and doctorates
    3. Buying tickets for his own movies to make them a hit.

    just one question
    if he is just a great star why was RA ONE a huge flop.

    Chennai Express has been forced to be a hit just to make himself stay in film industry for longer till his son comes and take over.
