Shah Rukh Khan on his kind of love
Actor Shah Rukh Khan (right) says relationships nowadays have become too practical. The 51-year-old still believes in the ‘old-fashioned, unreasonable’ love.
“What does a relationship mean? It appears that these days relationships are based on practical considerations. You should love unreasonably. Don’t you love your children without any reason?” Shah Rukh said at a promotional event for his latest film, Jab Harry Met Sejal. “However, in the present age, where everyone has so little time, I might be called old-fashioned,” he added.
The film, directed by Imtiaz Ali, has received mixed response. Asked if the filmmaker, who has helmed films such as Jab We Met (2007) and Rockstar (2011), has lost his magic touch, SRK replied, “I have not watched any of Imtiaz’s previous films. I agree that a film should create magic, but speaking on his (Imtiaz’s) behalf, one should always try something new. I think it is a wonderful film.”
SRK, who is known for romantic roles in films, experimented with thriller movies such as Fan (2016) and this year’s Raees. “I’ve tried formula films. But sometime back, I understood that I can’t keep recreating the same magic,” he said.
