Shah Rukh Khan on his kind of love

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

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.
