Shahrukh Khan, ac­tor, up close and per­sonal

India Today - - LEISURE - —with Suhani Singh

Q: Raees is about a boot­leg­ger. What’s your favourite drink? A: I gen­uinely like co­las. Ear­lier I used to drink 24 of them, but now I drink fewer. Q: As a per­former, who is your favourite vil­lain? A: The Joker. And I don’t know if he is a vil­lain or not, but I like Wal­ter White (from the Amer­i­can TV se­ries Break­ing Bad). Q: Are there any real-life crim­i­nals you are in­trigued by? A: I don’t see her as a crim­i­nal, but the story of Mata Hari is very in­ter­est­ing. So is the story of Nat­war­lal. Charles Sobhraj had an ex­tremely event­ful and mean life. Q: An oc­ca­sion on which you usu­ally lie? A: I gen­er­ally just keep quiet. Maybe a lit­tle fib like when some­body asks ‘You’re reach­ing na?’ and I’m like ‘Main nikal gaya hoon. I’ll be there in five min­utes.’ Q: One thing you can’t do with­out on a shoot? A: My van­ity van. It has to come with me. It has ev­ery­thing I need.
