Bollywoods King Khan; Shah Rukh Khan Reveals if he feels insecure or not...

As we all know SRK is one of the BIGGEST Superstars of all time and while he has delivered several blockbuster hits in the past, he hasn’t been able to do that in the past few years (Dilwale, Fan, Dear Zindagi, Raees were just hits).

On the other hand, other famous actors like Salman Khan (Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Sultan) and Aamir Khan (Dhoom 3, P.K., Dangal) have been delivering blockbuster after blockbuster. In such a time, there are people around the world who question SRK’s motivation level to sustain in the industry. However while keeping in mind that SRK is going to bounce back soon, we wanted to know is he ever feels insecure.

“I have never been an insecure person. I have been in this business for long as an actor and personally as well. I feel actors and films are like water, they will find their level. I have never made a film in 25 years, except perhaps one, for any other reason than to just entertain people and make them happy. To me, the bottom-line is, there’s no point doing a film if people don’t like it. The biggest goal is, can I change your mood for two-and-a-half hours when you are in the theatre and you come out walking saying that it enveloped me for these two hours in whichever way — happy, sad, intense or thinking! Besides that, there have been no other insecurities. And I have never had reasons to be insecure,” SRK mentioned to DNA after talking about insecurities.

Additionally, he also mentioned; how he haven’t let any criticism or negative comments affect his career, as his focus was always on his primary goal.

 “There will be a film which will do badly, but there are so many of them which have done so well, too. So when you look at it, yes you hear smatterings of conversations. But I have been hearing it for 22 years that my career is over. Everyone keeps saying it, but people don’t understand the business, the intensity that most actors and actresses use to entertain people. I am just very happy releasing my films. If they like it, they will do well. If they don’t, then I feel sad that I wasn’t able to deliver my prime goal which is to touch your life for two-and-a-half hours.”

Shah Rukh Khan, it is always a pleasure to see you on screen, as you have constantly engaged in entertaining us; we wish to see you entertain us for 25 years more!
