Shah Rukh Khan awarded Indian of the Year for series of box office triumphs

Shah Rukh Khan awarded Indian of the Year for series of box office triumphs

Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan has not given media interviews in the last five years, except for promotional press events. He has hardly opened up about his personal life in the public domain since his son Aryan Khan got embroiled in a drug controversy.

However, this week, he not only made a rare appearance at a media event but also opened up about the tough times that his family went through in the last few years and the lessons he learned from it.

"The last four-five years have been a bit of a ride for me and my family. I'm sure for some of you also because of Covid. Most of my films flopped. Analysts started writing my death knells, some idiots did the same which actually is the same thing, analysts and idiots. Not something that I really bother about," Shah Rukh Khan said after receiving a special award entitled “Indian of the Year” from CNNNews18 at a New Delhi ceremony.

"And then, at a personal level, a little bit of bothersome and unpleasant things also happened to say the least, which made me learn a lesson that 'be quiet, be very quiet and work hard with dignity'. When you think everything is good, and still know it in your heart when everything is good, suddenly out of nowhere, whoom... life may come and hit you," he added, presumably referring to Aryan's arrest in an alleged drug case in 2021.

SRK then, in his filmy style, shared his words of wisdom: "But this is a time you need to be the hopeful, happy, honest storyteller, and continue doing whatever you are doing and kind of think this is a nasty plot twist, this is not the story you are living. “And 100 percent is not the story's end. Because somebody somewhere told me that life mein filmon ki tarah, anth mein, sad theek ho jaata hai. Aur agar theek na ho, toh anth nahi hai. Picture abhi baaki hai mere dost. And I believe in him because I believe that goodness begets goodness," he said.

Film Review: Jawan [Soldier]

SRK returned to silver screen with Siddharth Anand's 'Pathaan' in January. In the film, SRK donned an action avatar and left everyone in awe. The film broke several records at the box office and managed to grab a name in the list of one of the highest-grossing films in the Indian film industry.

After 'Pathaan', King Khan returned to theatres in September with Atlee's directorial 'Jawan'. The film once again saw SRK in an action avatar. Like 'Pathaan', 'Jawan' also managed to strike a chord with the audience. SRK did not stop here. On December 21, he came up with his first-ever collaboration with Rajkumar Hirani. Titled 'Dunki', the film focuses on the issue of immigration. While the film received mixed reviews from the audience, it did decent business at box office.
