I’ll never retire from acting: Shah Rukh Khan

“Bollywood Star Salman Khan’s ‘Tubelight” is decent business at the worldwide BoxOffice.

‘In the past, I have played larger than life characters, so to go down to a really simple, innocent character is a hard thing to do.

Shah Rukh Khan along with his son AbRam greets his fans on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr at his residence in Mumbai.

The 51-year-old actor’s 2016 Eid outing “Sultan” opened at Rs 36.54 crore, while “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” earned Rs 36.50 crore on the first day.

From having a fight with Salman Khan in 2008 to the Wankhede brawl, Shah Rukh has had his fair share of controversies, but the actor still believes he has to do something “controversial” to make his biopic interesting enough for the audience.

“The most amusing part of my life is the analysis that people do of me. Maybe. But this thought has never come (of retirement)”, Shah Rukh said in an interview. I don’t think I would ever be able to retire from acting, unfortunately for a lot of people.

SRK is often criticised for not trying anything different regarding his films, but the actor said he had evolved with each film and matured as a person. I feel bad if my film doesn’t do well, I feel good if it does well but all these things last just for about six hours and I move on.

Tubelight is an entertaining family drama set in a small town in the hills of northern India, and tells the story of one man’s love for his family and his unshakeable belief in himself. And thank you for joining me on this glorious journey of 25 years. The film stars Shah Rukh as a Punjabi guy Harinder Singh Nehra and Anushka Sharma as a Gujarati girl named Sejal Jhaveri. “Sometimes when they (family) come to see the shooting they get exhausted”. I enjoyed while shooting for the film.

“So when it got over she asked me, “Papa it’s only for three seconds”. I must have shot it ten times. “Once you become a public figure you are expected to deliver excellence every time. that is when perks of failure are taken away from you”. “And I genuinely told her, ‘I don’t get bored of doing it”, he said.
