Shah Rukh Khan denied reports, Nov. 2, about him appearing in the next instalment of the “Dhoom” series and said that he has not signed any new film at the moment. Shah Rukh Khan views his achievements and success in terms of how gentle he can be towards people and to become a thorough gentleman would be a big accomplishment for the actor.
There have been reports that the “When Harry Met Sejal” actor will be part of “Dhoom 4.”
Shah Rukh, who turned 52, Nov. 2, was asked if he has been offered “Dhoom 4.”
“I have not signed any film at all. Even I keep reading reports. I think I should first finish this film, it is taking time,” said Shah Rukh.
“I want to be available, I don’t want to waste Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif’s dates… I want to be very clear that I don’t want to waste their dates. They have signed two films. Katrina has ‘Thugs-of-Hindostan’ and Anushka has ‘Sui Dhaaga.’ I want to be available,” the actor said.
On being prodded further about whether they have discussed the next film in “Dhoom” franchise, he said there has been no offer from the Yash Raj Films.
“With Yash Raj there is no offer. They just tell me. But I have explained to Aditya Chopra, Karan Johar and my other director friends that I am not thinking of any other film till December, they understand and respect that,” he said.
Currently, the actor is busy shooting for Aanand L. Rai’s film, in which he plays the role of a dwarf.
I Am Becoming Gentler with Age: Shah Rukh Khan
“When you reach this age, what you want is your children to be healthy. My way of thinking and sentiments have changed over the last few years. As I am aging, I am becoming gentler, towards everyone including you all. I just feel really gentle towards people,” the actor, who turned 52, Nov. 2, told media in Mumbai, during an interaction in a suburban hotel.
The actor said being gentle and patient towards people is something that he is looking forward to.
“Achievements, success will follow when we do good films.
I have other businesses also, which are doing well. But I think for me, achievements and successes are about how gentle I can be towards people, how much patience I can have and how much love I can give to people.
“That’s the genuine truth, really… So, yeah when I become a thorough gentleman, that will be big achievement,” he said.
Shah Rukh celebrated his birthday with family and close friends from the industry at his Alibaugh farmhouse.
He came from the coastal town in the noon and greeted the waiting fans outside his bungalow, Mannat.
“I wish I was here at night, but I’ve to spend time with family too so I have to be away. I kept getting videos of people being here and bursting crackers, which is not a good thing nowadays I’ve heard. But yes it’s very touching.”
He considers his fans’ love nothing but a big blessing.
“It feels like last year passed by quickly. When a year passes very fast, you feel good. I have a child who is five- year-old (AbRam). When he sees thousands of people coming from across the world outside my house, it’s a really big blessing,” he said.
While the actor said he didn’t receive any gifts from his children yet, AbRam wished him, “Happy birthday, birthday boy.”
Shah Rukh revealed that he still has some of the gifts which his father gave him.
“I still have the typewriter, a record player, broken camera and a chess set.”
