Prime News, National (Kolkata), August 6:- Shah Rukh Khan, who earlier this year completed 25 years as an actor in Hindi cinema, says that he has got “ten billion times” more than what he set out for when he started in 1992.
“This is ten billion times more than that I dreamt of,” Shah Rukh told reporters during the promotion of his latest romantic comedy “Jab Harry Met Sejal” directed by Imtiaz Ali and starring Anushka Sharma.
Since venturing into Bollywood as a nobody with “Deewana” movie, Shah Rukh, fondly known today as “Badshah” of the industry, has given several cinematic jewels like “Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge”, “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai” and “Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham” among many others.
The king of romance got critical acclaim in films like “Darr”, “Swades” and “Chak De India”.
The Delhi boy, who tiptoed into the film industry with empty pockets, now owns an IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders and his own production house Red Chillies Entertainment headed by his wife Gauri Khan.
Red Chillies is also the producer of “Jab Harry Met Sejal”, which released last Friday.
The 51-year-old is also the brand ambassador of Dubai and West Bengal tourism.
“My dreams were very small,” Shah Rukh said sitting in a plush city hotel and in front of a group of journalists who braved the actor’s delay due to a minor back injury which he had to dress before attending the Saturday night event. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
