SRK is one of the most loved celebrities of Bollywood. And his fans loves him for his realness. Recently in a candid interview with GQ Magazine, SRK actually shared some of the best and the worst parts of his life.
Here is what SRK said:
Impact of losing him parents early on:
I’m 51. I lost my dad when I was 14 or 15, and my mother when I was 25. That void never gets filled. If you lose your parents too early, you have to grow up too fast. You can’t play with toys, you have to start playing in the real world. I play with my children’s toys now. People find it odd, and think perhaps I’m just a good father, but that’s not true. I’m just a father who didn’t have toys.
About the right attitude towards money:
Don’t philosophize until you’re rich first. I used to be poor, and I can tell you there’s nothing romantic about it. Don’t be a struggling artist; be a happy one.
About fashion and money:
It’s very important for me to smell good. I mix two fragrances – a Dunhill scent that’s only available at their London store as well as a Diptyque one. I’m not big on fashion, but I have a good eye.
What’s on his bucket list?
My family used to own restaurants, so there’s a part of me that’s quite servile. I’m learning how to cook Italian food – I can make pasta, risotto and tiramisu right now – but what I really enjoy is serving people, and making sure they’re well fed. I’m building a new kitchen so I can cook more. I also want to learn to play the guitar well.
Thoughts on social media:
On social media, people say and do things that are barely legal because nothing is really regulated online. It’s like that inappropriate family member you’re always shushing because they’re being plain offensive. The digital world is full of these rude family members – sometimes it’s like they’re the only ones left.
Talking about his fitness and new year plans in 2017?
I will be from January 5th. I’d say earlier, but on New Year’s I think I should be drinking.
