While fans are eagerly waiting for Shah Rukh Khan to announce his next project, the star appeared on the show Talking Movies to celebrate the 20th anniversary of BBC World News. The actor spoke about his journey, hits, failures and where cinema in India is heading towards.
Shah Rukh while talking about films and the rich music culture that Bollywood endorses said, “I don’t think song and dance are going anywhere in a hurry from Indian cinema… singing is inherent in our storytelling style, I think we should respect it.”
SRK whose last film Zero did not work neither with the critics nor with the audience also opened up on the criticism in general and what he feels about it. “I think we just made bad films. It’s as simple as that, you have to keep it as simple as that. With thirty years of experience of filmmaking, I cannot intellectualize a failure or a success, I cannot simplify or oversimplify a failure or a success, and I cannot get gung ho or disturbed because of a failure or success,” he said.
Fro the unversed the megastar has also ventured into the digital space, not as an actor but as a producer and recently back the series Bard Of Blood that starred Emraan Hashmi and Sobhita Dhulipala. Talking about the evolution of OTT platforms he said, “I think suddenly you have a platform in India where you actually can cross over… and people are liking it all over the world, and that’s really a huge plus. Soon you’ll find these [Indian] directors and actors getting jobs and calls because people are showcasing their talent on a world platform”.
On the work front, as said his next film has become the biggest mystery and everyone is looking for an answer to it. There have been speculations that the star is juggling with the scripts he has liked. He is strongly speculated to be working with Raj & DK, Rajkumar Hirani and South director Atlee Kumar in their respective films.
