Shah Rukh Khan was present at the announcement of the 63rd Jio ‘Filmfare Awards 2018’ on Tuesday. During media interaction, he said, he will not be confirming any films until he finishes Anand L Rai’s film.
Actor Shah Rukh was asked he will be part of ‘Rakesh Sharma’s’ biopic, he said, “I haven’t signed any new film yet. I really want to live with this dwarf (Anand L Rai’s) film. In a couple of months, I will take a call on what films I will be doing. I have been meeting Siddharth, Ronak and some directors and producers but right now I haven’t confirmed any film. If I confirm some film I will start thinking about it and trying to get involved in its process. So, I just want to be free of everything, at least until Feb. By then hopefully, we will be able to finish Anand sir’s film.”
Khan was asked who is his favorite host for award functions or Tv shows, he said, “Honestly, there is nobody better than me. (laughs). I not trying to be pompous, I honestly think I am very good. I am impromptu, I dance well, I act well. No, I am not demeaning anyone, all the people who host shows are great. I only host Filmfare awards, but seriously I really think I am the best.”
Talking about hosting, the actor was asked if he ever thought hosting was a difficult job he said, “This is something that was very well explained to me by my wife. When I started doing all of this (roasting other artists) I was kind of a junior in the industry. When a someone who has been in the industry for 5 years does it (make fun of other actors) it looks cute. But after 10 years, now as a senior member when you do this, it can perhaps hurt sentiments. Normally when I am going to do something that I think is extremely funny, but could be hurtful, I request and ask them if it is alright. I think in earlier years it was easy, but now I try to contain it.”
“Also, I have noticed people get too personal. I think I have become gentler with age. I have realized that if I have a film that hasn’t done so well, it’s not funny if someone is making fun of it.” He added.
Shah Rukh’s untitled film directed by Anand L Rai is co-produced by Red Chillies Entertainment and Colour Yellow Productions.
The film will see many cameo appearances, but the pivotal roles will be presented by Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif, Anushka Sharma, and Tigmanshu Dhulia.
The film is slated to release in Dec 2018.
