Fans of SRK are sharing this nearly a decade old video of SRK from an event, where the actor was asked about his Hollywood plans. SRK responded, “My English not good, If they give me a role of a dumb person who doesn’t speak, maybe. I am not trying to be modest but I am 42 years old, I am little brown, I don’t have any special USP as an actor. I don’t know Kung fu, I don’t dance the Latin salsa, I am not tall enough. I think anyone who is my age in the western world, I have seen recent films of Europe, films of what you call ‘the dream factory’, I think there is no space for me. There is no place for me because I don’t think I am that talented.”
Shah Rukh Khan recently kickstarted the shoot of ‘Dunki’ with Rajkumar Hirani. This ambitious project features Taapsee Pannu opposite SRK and is reportedly an immigration drama. Apart from this, the actor will also be seen in action entertainer ‘Pathaan’ with Deepika Padukone and John Abraham and has also signed up for Atlee’s next with Nayanthara.
