The group ‘Pathaan’ had their first event after the movie was released and after making history and breaking box office records. As John Abraham confessed today that Shah Rukh Khan is not an actor, it’s an emotion – that seems so true when we see the excitement surrounding the actor in cinemas and in front of houses. he, Mannat, the last days!
But in contrast to his fame and stardom, the actor made a candid confession at today’s event. He said he didn’t feel very confident at the start of the tour for ‘Pathaan’. He shared, “I was a bit confident when I started doing it because it’s been a long time since I’ve been on the set. Even I was scared and felt unsafe. I lost confidence many times a day. That’s why I keep going because the weaker you are, the stronger you become. And the beautiful friends around me, like Deepika Padukone, John, Siddharth Anand, help me.”
The actor also shed light on the notion about him that he’s quite arrogant. He joked, “Aisa nahi hai ke main arrogant nahi hoon. Is galat faimi mein mat rehna (Don’t stay under the misconception that I’m not arrogant) I am the best. I am the best. I’m the best”
On a serious note, he further added, “We should wake up in the morning thinking that I am the best. You have to wake up with the confidence that I am the best only then you can do something. That’s why I keep saying that and people think it’s arrogance.”
When asked if he handles failure, here’s what SRK had to say. “Everybody has a different way of dealing with failure. There’s a special bathroom in my house. Everyone knows I cry when I’m there. But that’s all about Monday. If the movie sucks on Sunday, you wake up on Monday thinking you should work harder now. If the movie is a success, you still wake up on Monday thinking that now I still have to prove myself for my next movie. So Monday is about getting back to the business of the industry.”
The actor added that he feels very apologetic if his movie fails. “I feel responsible for letting everyone down. We all tried our best. There are thousands of people connected to a movie being made and their lives tied to it. We feel guilty for letting the public down. Hence, Phir se mehnat karo, the bano of the working class. If you can’t carry on as a working-class person, then you shouldn’t be in the movies.”‘Pathaan’ has now reached a worldwide total of over 400 crores.
