Ac­tor Shah Rukh Khan says that there are in­ter­est­ing el­e­ments miss­ing in his life for biopic

Ac­tor Shah Rukh Khan (left) doesn’t find his life’s story in­ter­est­ing and “con­tro­ver­sial” enough for a biopic. He says that, in fact, it would be “bor­ing” un­less he de­cides to write it on his own. The ac­tor has clocked 25 years in the film in­dus­try since his de­but film Dee­wana (1992). Con­sid­er­ing the fact that mak­ing biopic on iconic per­son­al­i­ties is a new trend in Bol­ly­wood now, he was asked if he would al­low any film­maker to make his biopic. The 51-year-old ac­tor how­ever says, “You know, I never let peo­ple know about the most in­ter­est­ing part of my per­son­al­ity, so you will never get a good story, un­less I am writ­ing it.” “So what­ever they will make, will just be a suc­cess story, which I feel is so bor­ing. I mean, ‘Kya hogi story (What will the story be)?’ That a boy came from Delhi to Mum­bai af­ter his par­ents’ death and be­came a su­per­star with­out a god­fa­ther? Bor­ing.” He also finds other el­e­ments miss­ing for a grip­ping biopic. “You know, once a jour­nal­ist asked me if I would be a leg­endary fig­ure, to which I replied ‘Yes’. Then he said some­thing that to­day I agree upon—‘you never be­come leg­endary un­less you do some­thing con­tro­ver­sial’. And my con­tro­ver­sies, none of you guys know, un­for­tu­nately. So with­out con­tro­versy, it’s go­ing to be a bor­ing story (laughed),” added Shah Rukh, while ad­dress­ing the me­dia dur­ing Eid cel­e­bra­tions. Khan be­gan from the tele­vi­sion in­dus­try and worked his way into films.
