“Whoever took his life has to pay and they will pay very soon.”
Those were the words of a man said to be like a grandfather to nine-year-old Cyon Paul during his funeral yesterday.
He appeared in over 50 movies, and has been in the public eye for over two decades, and you would think that at this stage, one would be fed-up with being hounded for photos and autographs, but not this actor!
Speaking at an award ceremony organised by Forbes Middle East to acknowledge the Top Indian Leaders in the Arab World, Shah Rukh Khan was quoted as saying: “I am happy with my fame: I would miss leaving my house and not having people waiting for me, I would miss people waving to me, I am happy being loved. I want no privacy; I shamelessly want to be a star, I think it’s the most beautiful thing to be”.
He gave a candid interview to the Forbes features editor in which he stated that he came from a middle class home and had parents who tried very hard to educate him despite money issues and that material things mean nothing to him.
“I have the big houses, amazing cars, the best boxes in the stadiums; people really pamper me. But if I had none of that, and I just had my acting, then I would be happy,” he said.
The 67th Cannes Festival and it will be more than just exciting for Bollywood fans! Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was thought to have missed it when she got stuck at the London airport but the face of L’Oreal was very much present for her thirteenth walk down the red carpet.
Uday Chopra, now a producer, is there for the screening of his Grace of Monaco starring Hollywood beauty, Nicole Kidman, who he finally got to meet! And Sonam Kapoor with her sister Rhea took over L’Oréal Paris’ social media to give you her live experience at Cannes.
The festival runs from May 14th-25th, 2014.
