What's up with King Khan? After wandering the streets of New York looking like a homeless vagrant, he's trying to be stubble sexy a la Abhishek Bachchan, but ended up looking like the guy who might polish shoes for his character in Don. Really, SRK... one has always expected cooler style sense from you than this! You couldn't distinguish Khan here from the guy selling magazines around your street corner either.
But say what you may, Bollywood's Don can never be blamed for his lack of articulation. Some gems:
1. "Why is it that everytime I show my films to Sonia Gandhi and her family, people think that I'm entering politics? Why doesn't it occur to people that they may be entering Bollywood?"
2. "Entertainment is my job. I've no qualms singing and dancing at weddings, on the streets or on a stage. If you are running a business, you can pay me and I will do the Chhaiya Chhaiya for you."
3. "That is the positive side of the population explosion in our country. Every fourth face is Indian and by default, every fourth face in the world recognises me because I'm the face of Indian movies."
Now beat that! King Khan's also the king of kahavaths. But the best of the lot wasn't even from his hallowed mouth - it came from Karan Johar, who, as we all know, occupies a very special position in SRK's life. Here goes: ""At the end of the day, Shah Rukh and Gauri are normal, middle-class Delhiites. He is too ordinary to be a superstar... He lives an ordinary life. He is a guy who spends four hours in the loo. Can you imagine that the biggest star in India takes all his important decisions sitting on the pot?"
We do. King Khan's pot is his throne. Now does he put his shit in his mouth, that's the question.
