Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan talks about his UK fans

Shah Rukh Khan is a household name in India and is probably the most well-known Bollywood actor worldwide.

While he has a wax figure at Madame Tussauds in Marylebone and breaks UK box office records with his films, he attributes his success here to the older generation of Bollywood fans.

Speaking to BollyNewsUK, he said: “I think, a few generations have grown up here watching my movies. Today’s children may feel differently but most of my fans who I meet here, tell me that their Mom and Dad like me a lot (laughs).”

“I wish I had time to meet all of them. I also wish that it wasn’t as dangerous as it is. I can’t stop my car in the middle of the road. I try my best and stick my hand out and give them hugs whenever I can. I always tell my fans that if you guys get a little organised, I will be able to meet you all but there is always a bit of a frenzy,” added Khan.

The 52-year-old actor owns a lavish house on Park Lane in London, where his daughter resides as she attends the private Sevenoaks School in Kent. He has also filmed numerous movies here and uses his luxurious home as his base when he films in the capital.

He said: “I am actually very used to filming my movies in London. I shot for Mohabbatein (2000), Ra.One (2011), Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012) and FAN (2015) here. I am familiar with the city. When I say city, I actually mean Mayfair, that is where I walk around (laughs).”

Earlier this year, Shah Rukh Khan was awarded the Crystal Award at the World Economic Forum in Davos for his achievements as an artist. Cate Blanchett and Sir Elton John were there other two recipients of the award this year.

Interview: “We should start a campaign in the UK, to make me the next Indian James Bond” – Shah Rukh Khan

srk-mahiraHe is known as the biggest movie star in the world, yet not everyone in the UK knows him. Meet Shah Rukh Khan; Bollywood superstar who has appeared in over 80 Bollywood films and won 14 Filmfare Awards, India’s equivalent of the Oscars.

The Bollywood star boasts of 23 million followers on Twitter and 22 million likes on Facebook. Even over a decade ago, his movie Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998) was the highest-grossing film of the year, ahead of James Cameron’s Titanic at Cineworld Feltham, west-London, which testaments his popularity among south-Asians living here.

Besides owning a plush house on Park Lane in London, Khan has filmed numerous movies here. He was awarded an honorary doctorate degree in Arts and Culture by the University of Bedfordshire in 2009. In 2015, he was conferred with a 2nd UK honorary doctorate degree by the University of Edinburgh, given in recognition of his success as an actor with a global reach and his outstanding record of philanthropy, altruism and humanitarianism.

However, Khan’s stardom often sees him involved in controversies. His latest release RAEES was dragged into the political tensions that erupted last year between India and Pakistan, as the leading actress of the film, Mahira Khan, is Pakistani. Political parties had threatened to attack cinemas that would screen the flick. The actor had to go and meet the head of the political party MNS in Mumbai to negotiate a safe and smooth release. Apparently, the politician demanded that the actress shall not promote the film in India in any which way and apparently, Khan agreed.

Speaking about the controversy to BollyNewsUK, he said, “There was a time controversies bothered and disturbed me. I just couldn’t understand why some of the things were happening. Then l realised, that is what I do for a living. I make and release films. A Shah Rukh Khan film is an occasion for many people. I have realised that it’s more important that families across the globe have the option to watch my movies. I now know that it’s my responsibility to make the experience of watching the film for the viewer as comfortable as possible.”

Even in 2015, his film Dilwale faced bans in India after Khan commented about “intolerance” in India and was branded “anti-National” by many. “I have realised with my film “Dilwale” (2015) that I am putting viewers at discomfort. They want to see the film but there are situations due to controversies, which make the experience awkward. In the past, I have not understood why, but people have attacked my stand on certain things. I am clear that my stand now is for the viewer to be able to go and watch my film without fear.”

“After working in the industry for twenty-five years, I think its now my job that a film reaches everyone. I’m okay with going to meet people to explain to them what the film is about and hear their opinion to make it a smooth release. I have realised that I need to do this and well in-time, not two days before the film is out. I have started the process much earlier. If people have issues, I will address them,” said Khan.

SRK, as he is often called by friends and fans, also worked with ex-porn star Sunny Leone for a special song in his new film. While Sunny has enjoyed stardom in India, this is the first time a mainstream superstar has worked with the porn star-turned-actress.

Talking about the special song, a recreated version of Bollywood hit ‘Laila Main Laila’, he said “We wanted to capture the time period, the costumes and the feel. That is why we did not go for a popular Hindi film actress. Sunny Leone is marvellous. We did not want to take a famous actress for it as it’s not meant to be an item number. In the film, the song is one of the most crucial moments.”

Khan, who owns Red Chillies Entertainment with wife Gauri Khan, has is eyes set to get into international distribution as well, after producing movies and ads in India.  “I am very clear that at Red Chillies Entertainment we want to start slowly distributing films ourselves. We have done that in India. To begin with, we have to partner with studios and ZEE is a good partner for the UK and USA for Raees. It’s easier now to get into overseas distribution. We have regular distributors and the business model has become easier. Its not for any other reason. All other distributors like Yash Raj Films, Eros International and UTV etc. are fantastic. But the main concern is that filmmaking has become more expensive. We want to market them a certain way and control how they released. We are making more than one film a year now and we know them better than studios. Dear Zindagi was only released in multiplex cinemas. We felt that this model will work for the film. If we had a distribution partner, they may have assumed that it’s a Shah Rukh Khan film and needs that kind of a release. But Dear Zindagi was not a Shah Rukh Khan film of a commercial calibre. The overseas release is very important, more so for me. My films sometimes do better overseas than domestically. That keeps us going. The overseas markets are perhaps bigger for me than for any other actor, ” said the actor.

srk-raees-4

SRK has often played negative characters throughout his career and those have often stayed the most memorable for his fans such as his portrayals in Baazigar, Darr and Don. Talking about revisiting a negative character he said, “I have a simple take on these negative characters; you can either like them or dislike them. As a character, I never try to justify them. If he is bad, he is bad. I don’t make any excuses for the character as an actor. Inherently, this character is a bit of a tragic hero. He makes some mistakes, which turn out more than what he had bargained for. He has a choice to get away with it and never be paying for his mistake, but he takes responsibility for his actions. This makes his somehow heroic, or the protagonist. I think, what people will take away from the film is that you need to take responsibility of your actions, whatever the outcome may be.”

Shah Rukh Khan was named the 2nd richest actor in the world but does not have his eyes set on Hollywood like other Bollywood exports Priyanka Chopra (Quantico, Baywatch) and Deepika Padukone (xXx – The Return of Xander Cage).

“Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone as well as others like Irrfan Khan, Om Puri and Anupam Kher have done a great job. They are opening doors for Indians in the western film industry. I am too old to take advantage of it. I’ll make films in India. But we should start a campaign in the UK to make me the next Indian James Bond. I’ll be a third generation Indian living in London, who joins the MI6,” says Khan laughing.

Yash Raj Films discovers Croatia for SRK’s ‘FAN’

 

Yash Raj Films’ ground-breaking new film starring SRK is making a mark in multiple ways. Apart from its innovative VFX and intriguing storyline, FAN has become the first film from India to be shot in Croatia. 

FAN - Croatia

Even more special is the fact that within Croatia, a picturesque, tiny nation in the heart of Europe, FAN has filmed high octane, adrenaline pumping action sequences in the historic Dubrovnik City. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Dubrovnik is also famous as the site for filming the global cult TV show, Game of Thrones. It’s aquamarine, breathtaking waterfront was also exposed to the world in the TV series, DIG. 

With unique terrain and untouched architecture, the quaint Dubrovnik City has witnessed it’s first Indian film crew, thus opening up new horizons. In fact SRK has even tweeted a chase sequence which was shot there!

Both YRF and SRK films have a legacy of opening up new territories and terrain for the grand, lavish Indian film industry. With Croatia, a new space has been explored for Bollywood, and on celluloid, these world class action sequences promise more excitement. 

YRF to release FAN in UK cinemas on 15th April

In a world of labels it’s easy to forget who made sportsmen, pop singers and matinee idols into stars, superstars and megastars – the FANS. Every FAN has their own personal relationship with their hero – it’s almost a Love Story.

FAN is the story of Gaurav (Shah Rukh Khan) a young man, 20 something, whose world revolves around the mega movie star Aryan Khanna (Shah Rukh Khan) or God as he refers to him.

From the by lanes of Delhi, young Gaurav embarks on a journey to the city of dreams, Mumbai, in order to wish his God on his birthday. After all, he is Aryan’s biggest FAN and even has a striking resemblance to him – how difficult could it be for the world biggest FAN to get an audience with the world’s biggest Star.

FAN UK - Shah Rukh Khan

When things don’t go according to plan, Gaurav’s love and passion for his God turns in to a dangerous obsession that crosses the fine line.

In an edge of the seat thriller, FAN will peel away at both Gaurav and Aryan’s personalities and characters as the two men discover people within themselves that even they didn’t know existed, and we’re left wondering who to sympathize with and whom to root for – can we really pick a side, after all, Superstars are also human beings but each one of us is also a FAN.

FAN Starring: Shah Rukh Khan
Directed by: Maneesh Sharma 
Produced by: Aditya Chopra

Yash Raj Films will release FAN in UK cinemas nationwide on 15th April 2016.

Sony Music Entertainment and Red Chillies Entertainments Pvt. Ltd. recently launched one of the most anticipated film soundtracks of the year, ‘Dilwale’ with a worldwide exclusive listening session of three tracks from the OST at the Sony Music headquarters in London. Shah Rukh Khan sent a video message for the event and music composer Pritam interacted with the UK media via video conferencing.

Dilwale will reignite the quintessential, romantic magic of the iconic Kajol and Shah Rukh Khan on-screen pairing for the first time since 2010’s worldwide hit, ‘My Name Is Khan’.

The soundtrack for ‘Dilwale’ has been composed by renowned music director Pritam, collaborating with lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya. The duo has previously come together to create hit songs for soundtracks such as ‘Cocktail’, ‘Barfi!’, ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ and ‘Dhoom 3’.

Dilwale Sneak Peek poster

‘Dilwale’ features a standout musical contribution and a wide variety of genres from key ballads to anthemic dance tracks that bring to life the truly unique and evergreen chemistry of Kajol and Shah Rukh Khan. Looking back over two decades in film, Bollywood’s favourite onscreen couple has always shared a backdrop of incredibly successful music, with classic hits from ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’, ‘Baazigar’, ‘Karan Arjun’, ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ and ‘My Name Is Khan’; still very much in the hearts and minds of Bollywood music lovers of all ages, all over the world. Not to forget the timeless Kajol-Shah Rukh Khan classic, ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’, which celebrates a landmark 20 years in cinema this month, making it the longest running film in the history of Indian cinema.

[tweet 661543584471076864 align=’center’] 

Speaking about the launch Shah Rukh Khan through his video message said that it was a special day, as the music of a Bollywood film has never been sampled to the media in the past and that too even before the trailer has been released.

The three tracks previewed to the press at the event are titled ‘Gerua’, Manma Emotion Jaage’ and ‘Janam Janam’. The soundtrack of Dilwale will feature seven tracks in total. 

Speaking to the media at the sneak peek event, Pritam said that Dilwale is a very special movie for him. “I have never worked on a full-fledged Shah Rukh Khan movie. I composed the music for Billu which featured SRK in a special appearance. Last year on his birthday, Shah Rukh told me that he was coming to me with something special. I was extremely excited as I have always wanted to work with him. Our generation has grown up idolising SRK-Kajol.”

Gerua

Veeran Tha Dil Ka Jahaan
Jis Din Tu Daachil Hua

Duniya Ko Bhula Ke
Tumse Mila Hoon
Dil Se Nikli Hai Dua
Rang De To Mohe Gerua

” ‘Gerua’ is a romantic song picturised on SRK and Kajol in Iceland. It has been sung by Arijit Singh and Antara Mitra. I actually reworked the song after I saw the picturisation and added Bulgarian folk instruments in the track. When I found out that Kajol has been cast opposite SRK in Dilwale, I couldn’t sleep for one night. Then I stopped thinking about it. Their legacy is impossible to beat. This was the first romantic song that I played to them and they approved it straight away. The words in the song mean that ‘I should become a yogi in your love and leave the world’. We went through a few voices for Gerua but Arijit suits the track and Antara brought a freshness to it,” said Pritam about the love song ‘Gerua’

DLWL5203

Manma Emotion Jaage

Chooriya Re
Gooriya Re

Tere Jalwa Dekha Tu
Mana Main Mausam Jaage Re
Dil Jaaga Re
Manma Emotion Jaage

Talking about this dance party song, Pritam said, ” This song has been picturised on Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon in a grand way. It’s a fun track and the main hook of the song is something that Amitabh Bhattacharya came up with.”

Janam Janam

Jaane Saath Chalna Yoohin
Kasam Kasam Aa Ke Milna Yoohin

Meri Subah Ho Tun Hi Ho
Aur Shaan Bhi

Teri Baahon Main Hoon Mere Dono Jahaan
Tu Meri Aarzoo
Tu Meri Aashiqui

Janam Janam

“After SRK and Rohit Shetty narrated the script to me, this was the track I composed on the next day. They instantly liked it as well. Janam Janam is truly the theme of the movie and is played whenever SRK-Kajol meet in the film.  While the film is a typical Rohit Shetty film, it also has a love story which is very important,” said Pritam.

‘Dilwale’ is directed by Rohit Shetty, whose last collaboration with Shah Rukh Khan, ‘Chennai Express’, was a runaway, global success. The film also features the crème of Indian cinema’s new generation talent, Kriti Sanon and Varun Dhawan, alongside a seasoned supporting cast of actors like Johnny Lever, Sanjay Mishra, Vinod Khanna, Kabir Bedi, Mukesh Tiwary and Varun Sharma.

Venky Mysore – CEO, Red Chillies Entertainments Pvt. Ltd. said “Music continues to be an integral part of Indian films and that of movies featuring SRK have always been received very well world over. With the help of Sony Music this time, we wish to present every Hindi film music lover with a musical brilliance in the form of ‘Dilwale’.”

Shridhar Subramaniam – President India & Middle East, Sony Music Entertainment said, “We are committed to make Dilwale the biggest Soundtrack in the International markets by putting together one of the most aggressive and innovative marketing campaigns. The pairing of Shah Rukh Khan with Kajol has had a special place in the hearts of millions and with the addition of two young heart throbs Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon we believe that the music of Dilwale will carry forward this tradition.”
