Asked about his take on awards, Shah Rukh told IANS: “I have won more than 525 awards so I can’t question awards, in fact I like them. (But) I had a simple logic during the initial years of my career that I would not attend an award function if I was not going to win.”
“I know I am not getting so I will not go. But later I realised you have to show graciousness for having been awarded. So I made a rule that I will just perform when I am not getting an award. I see them as an evening out of celebration and there is no other reason,” he added.
Shah Rukh is currently busy promoting “Fan”, a film in which he is seen playing a double role of both a star and his fan.
Asked if it was a huge risk to do a film like “Fan”, he said: “For me it doesn’t make a difference at all. Nobody was in a phase of doing a film like Fan because that’s not a regular film that comes into your head. I am not the kind of actor who waits for the right script. I have nothing to lose.”
Directed by Maneesh Sharma, “Fan” was released on Friday.
