Shah Rukh Khan is a certifiable Bollywood superstar, with over 80 films and hundreds of millions of fans to his name. On Thursday, he gave a talk at the 2017 TED conference that touched on everything from his reputation as the “King of Romance” to the ways that the world has changed since the introduction of the internet.
Shah Rukh Khan did not stick to just one topic and according to a report in Business Insider, he was apparently the funniest speaker at TED 2017 up until now.
“Humanity is a lot like me. It’s an aging movie star, grappling with all the newness, wondering whether she got it right.”
On the internet: “We had expected an expansion of ideas and dreams; we had not bargained for the enclosure of judgment.”
“You can use your energy to spread the darkness of destruction or you can use it to spread the joy of light to millions.”
“I looked at my face and realized I am starting to look more and more like my wax statue at Madame Tussauds.”
On the professional front, Shah Rukh will make a comeback on Indian television with the show TED Talks India: Nayi Soch; and is already shooting for his upcoming film, tentatively titled as’The Ring’ opposite Anushka Sharma.
He is also working with filmmaker Aanand L Rai, where the star is portraying a dwarf’s character, wherein, Alia Bhatt is rumoured to be paired opposite Shah Rukh in this film.
