“I am ugly” — this was Shah Rukh Khan’s reaction when he saw himself on the screen for the first time and decided to ditch his plan to get into acting. The superstar says he still has a “hard time” believing his rise to fame, and says he doesn’t think of himself as a “star”.
“I don’t want to show off but I am genuinely a dream come true. I am a lower-middle-class boy, an orphan, who got into the city of glamour, became a movie star and the world showered me with love. This only happens in dreams. I never thought of it, Shah Rukh said at an event here.
“I still have a hard time believing it. I never think of myself as a star, sometimes I have to behave like a star, which is not interesting. But I love my job,” he added.
