SFFILIM pays a tribute to Badshah of Bollywood aka Shahrukh Khan

45

Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan has been paid a tribute at the 60th San Francisco International Film Festival (SFIFF) on Friday. The actor had a candid conversation with Hollywood director-producer Brett Ratner.

He also went live on Twitter where he has more than 24 million followers. As one of the audience members asked him how he handled failure and kept his confidence in himself intact, the actor said, “I am an actor.” And before anyone could interpret, he added “Whenever I am feeling bad or sad, especially when my films do not perform well and I fail to make people smile, I do lock myself in the bathroom and cry it all out. It is ok to cry for both men and women. Get it out of your system. And the youngsters need to understand that both success and failure are transient. Both will not last forever. So if you fail, cry it out and even if you achieve success go out and party but don’t think that the party will be on forever. Be realistic and keep working. It will get better some day.”

When Brett inquired Shah Rukh about a role that he has always imagined himself doing, the Dear Zindagi actor had an interesting reply. “When I started off as an actor, a director called me and told me he wants to cast me because I don’t have a chocolate boy image and I look ugly and he loved the fact that I was so ugly but interesting. I was so confused on how to react, whether to take it as a compliment or feel bad about it. In the end, I took a decision that before other filmmakers start perceiving me as an ugly actor I would say yes to every film being offered to me. And I am doing this since then,” Shah Rukh said. Talking about song and dance in Bollywood movies, the actor said, “In India, we don’t need dance clubs. We just need an excuse to dance.”

Amidst the interview, Brett surprised Shah Rukh as he connected the Indian superstar to Jackie Chan through a video call. Like an overwhelmed fan, Shah Rukh told Jackie that he has been his fan since forever. “I don’t think I have said this before but when my first son was born (Aryan), he looked like Jackie Chan.” he added.

As the show came to an end Shah Rukh promised the audience who wanted his hug, that the organisers might not have informed them, but hugs from him were free with their tickets.

Earlier Shahrukh Khan created fans frenzy when he arrived at SFFILM Festival. He is undoubtedly the most popular Bollywood actor in overseas.

  4. bad news for zebra fans

    very soon srk is not going to have a single film in top ten grossers of domestic market. his film ce is now standing at 7 th position in domestic market and if before dwarf release tubelight, tzh, salman eid 2018 release and toh crosses ce which they should he will not have any films in top 10 grossers. and then if dwarf underperforms and fails to cross kick then srk for a long time may not have a single film in top 10 grossers.

    • @dishonest man,except some mad people like u who else will remember or bother about top grossers. People have other things to worry in their life.

    • Jab india k liye worldwide me represent tab bhi aakr bhok rha h bo record lekr tu maha pagal h yr aur tere sallu ko kabhi itna samman nahi milega yaad rakhna

  5. before 2010 srk was raped by hritik
    2000- hr>srk ( both in opening and lifetime)
    2001-hr> srk( opening and lifetime)
    2002- srk> hr( opening and lifetime)
    2003- hr> srk( opening and lifetime)
    2004- srk> hr( opening and lifetime)
    2005- hr absent
    2006- hr> srk( opening and lifetime)
    2007- hr absent
    2008- srk> hr( opening and lifetime)
    2009- hr absent

    so in 2000-09 it was 4-3 in favour of hritik both in opening and lifetime. and hence it is proved srk was never the king of bollywood, he was , is and always be a average star whose 25 years stardom is nothing but a ghost story.

  6. Let’s see which people molested Gangu Teli Sallu:
    He has lost most no. of clashes:
    In 1990s Bhai lost these clashes
    -Biwi ho to aisi vs sone pe suhaaga(madhuri)
    -Kurbaan vs 100 days-Suryabanshi vs Panaah(nasserudheen shah)
    -Nischai vs Julm ki Hukumat(govinda)
    -Dil tera aashiq vs ek hi raasta
    -Chandramukhi vs Ek hi Raasta(Ajay)
    -Sangdil sanam vs HHB(akki)
    -Andaaz apna apna vs suhaag
    -Agni sakshi vs Yeh Majhdar(nan patekar)
    -Auzaar vs Juddai(anil kapoor)

    In last decade
    -Phir milenge vs Dhoom(uday chopra)
    -SKPGY vs Anthony kaun hai(arshad warsi)
    -Don vs Jaaneman(SRK)
    -Saawan vs Positive(Akshay Khanna)
    -MAMK vs Blue vs All the best
    -Andaaz apna apna vs suhaag
    -marigold vs buddha margaya(Rakhi sawant,)
    -God tussi great ho vs bachna ae haseeno(Ranbir kapoor)

    Perhaps even Chamatkar vs Jagrutti with srk(Date to be confirmed by BOI).

    SRK has beaten Hrithik by a Huge margin whenever he clashed with him. Dishonest Joker’s idol Gangu Teli sallu also lost clashes with his two movies starring Madhuri Dixit and Sridevi. Now Dishonest Joker questions SRK ‘s superstardom who has been the one and only consistent Superstar throughout 3 decades…!!

  7. Dishonest joker compares SRK with a small star who can’t give one film each year, but now I see even junior Hrithik’s performance in Jodha Akbar has been appreciated abroad. When will Gangu Teli sallu receive such recognition..?? My heart weeps seing Gangu Teli sallu’s misfortune that in spite of being one of the most senior Non-actors of bollywood he doesn’t even have any prestigious recognition in his homeland, forget abroad….!!

  8. We dont care about bo how much earn or loss we zabra fans always love his humbleness ,kindness to everyone n his acting never fallen n his cute pure smell tells how much he is true thats y we love forever king khan ,im proud to be srkian

  9. @nn fact remains fact and fact is hritik was biggest in 2000-09 decade, he was well ahead of srk that decade . you don’t believe me . here is the real data
    ( 2000-09 comparison srk vs hr)
    1.blockbuster
    hritik-4
    srk-4
    2. all time grosser
    hritik-1
    srk-0
    3. highest grosser of the year
    hritik-3
    srk-3
    4. record opening day
    hritik-3
    srk-1
    5. record weekend
    hritik-4
    srk-3
    6. 2 crore plus footfall films
    hritik-3
    srk-3
    7. 3 crore plus footfall films
    hritik-2
    srk-1

    so the statistics show that hrirtik was ahead of srk in record opening day, record weekend, 3 crore plus footfall films and all time grossers. in blockbusters, hgoty and 2 crore plus footfall films they were equal. so srk was ahead of hritk in nothing but hr was ahead of srk in 4 of the 7 major achievements. and hritik had no release in 2005, 07 and 09 while srk had a release each and every year. still hritik was ahead of srk. is it not a huge shame for srk?

    these are true statistics and honest explanation and they prove that hritik was the biggest star of 2000-09 decade followed by aamir. and our gangu teli was at third position. you can’t deny it?

  10. Gd to see an Indian actor getting so much appreciation in abroad.. Though I don’t like SRK much, this particular news is really satisfying to watch.. well done SRK

  11. The after-effect of giving atte53.3%ntion to Dishonest Joker’s jokes–plentiful laughs..!! Let’s see 2000-2009’s analysis between SRK and Hrithik( SRK’s extended cameos in Hey Ram and Billu not included). Total films, SRK-20, Hrithik-15:

    Success Ratio:
    SRK-70%
    Hrithik-53.3%( even after doing less number of films)

    Hit Ratio:
    SRK-60%
    Hrithik-33.3%(almost half of SRK’s, even after doing less films than SRK)

    Blockbuster Ratio:
    SRK 20%
    Hrithik-26.7% ( including K3G where SRK was the lead)

    So Hrithik wasn’t even in competition. SRK’s hits=2*Hrithiks Hits, SRK’s success=almost 2*Hrithik’s success. That too after doing only 5 movies more than Hrithik. Blockbusters were same.

    Aamir had the highest Success Ratio, Hit Ratio and Blockbuster Ratio in 2000-2009. Now let’s compare SRK and Aamir’s (9 films) films:

    Aamir’s Hits-6
    SRK’s Hits-12 (2*Aamir’s hits)

    Aamir’s Success-7
    SRK’s Success-14( 2*Aamir’s success)

    And all of SRK’s films were big films with big earnings, not small films and small hits. Let’s not even talk about Overseas where SRK molested each and every actor. Record openings, record weekends and 6 Highest Grosser of the year of India worldwide, 5 of them were back to back( A record which is unbroken till now). So even Aamir wasn’t any competition. Hrithik had a transient stardom right after Kaho Na Pyar Hai craze but that didn’t implement into successful films and he was no competition. That’s why all trade sites agree that SRK was No.1 from 1992-2009. Case Closed.

    Oh no, we forgot another competitor, Sallu the Gangu Teli who delivered record number of Flops, Disasters and Clash Defeats and he had the prestigious achievement of lagging behind “Great stars” like Saif Ali Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Tushshar Kapoor, Rakhi Sawant etc. We shouldn’t forget him and should also include him in our consideration…!!

  12. @nn i know you can come up only with hits and successes but they are never any criteria for superstardom. superstardom are judged by blockbusters, record openers, huge footfalls etc and in those things hritik was ahead of srk. yes hritik had many flops and non hits but look at those films. his flop film fiza opened better than srk’s blockbuster film mohabbatein, his semi hit mission kashmir was a record opener and no film of srk in 2000 opened better than mk. his flop film lakshya which was an offbeat film had the 4th highest opening day of the year beating srk’s swades. but srk’s hit film chalte chalte opened lower than salman’s non hit tere naam despite of having hit music and biggest heroine rani mukherjee.

    so the point is simple yes hritik had many flops but those flops opened better than srk’s hits and blockbusters , so that kind of a flop don’t put any question on hritik’s stardom.

    and your own analysis shows hritik’s blockbuster ratio was better than srk and blockbuster is a bigger achievement than hits and successes.

    and the biggest test for strdom is always opening and hirtik had more record opening day and weekend than srk in the last decade despite of doing lesser films than srk.

    if hits and successes are criteria for stardom then someday people will even say akshay kumar is a superstar.

  13. The biggest test for stardom is consistency in every department which none other than SRK has but which Gangu Teli sallu fans will never understand since he is a 2010 born star. Hrithik with 53% success ratio and 33% hit ratio can never be called a superstar since that proves his films only worked when the content clicked. Also if a star does lesser films his films are bound to take bigger openings. Akshay Kumar is never a consideration since his success ratio and hit ratio were never good and he does small films. With lower success ratio and hit ratio, blockbusters become fluke and can’t be credited to the actors for their success. Since you are Gangu Teli criminal sallu fan so it’s natural that you try to avoid the context of huge Flops and Disasters and Clash defeats which Gangu Teli sallu delivered in heaps and bounds and in record number…!!

  14. From 1992 to 2017 the only superstar who had consisten superstardom is SRK. He excelled in every department

  15. @Dishonest man
    Then see from 1992 to 1999
    In blockbusters: SRK>>SALMAN(SRK-Darr, dtph Salman-Null)
    In ATBB SRK(2)>>Salman(1 Madhuri’s hahk)
    In record openers SRK(1)>Salman(0,just like trimurti biwi no.1 had anilkapoor)
    Footfalls of superhit movies: Pardesh>PKTDK
    Deewana, Darr will be updated
    P.S. Only from 1992 when srk made is debut

    @NN
    One more
    Chand ka tukda vs naaraj

  16. @Sayar-Don’t bother about Dishonest Joker. The case from 1992-2009 is closed. Every trade site agrees SRK was no. 1 , most importantly BOI. Let him cry in comment section with his manipulated showcase of data. He knows his logic has no validity that’s why he wails endlessly.

  17. blockbuster can be a fluke when a man gives 1 blockbuster after 5 years just like srk does, not for a man who gives 5 back to back blockbusters . even a tortoise is consistent in his slow speed but a rabbit will catch it whenever he will want , that’s called difference between capabilities. srk was consisitent for 25 years but salman needed just 6 years to catch him and beat him, that proves itself what srk has done for 25 years.
    the flops of hritik opened to huge response whether it was mission kashmir or fiza or yaadein or lakshya. so he can’t be blamed for those flops. infact srk films became hit due to content just like chak de india which opened slow but then picked up due to word of mouth, that is not superstardom.

    and if hit ratio and success ratio is criteria for superstardom then varun dhawan is a bigger star than srk in this decade.

  18. Success Ratio and Hit Ratio and Blockbuster ratio definitely define superstardom. Sallu the Gangu Teli has more Flops than success then how come anyone call him a superstar..?? He first has to overcome his flops and increase his success ratio and hit ratio and of course Varun Dhawan in his first 5 years is a bigger star than Gangu Teli sallu in his first 5 years. Every trade site value success ratio and Hit ratio for superstars working for decades. Not to mention Gangu Teli sallu has 40 flops/disasters and 20 clash defeats. In no way has he surpassed SRK’s stardom. Chak De India was an offbeat film and SRK pulled it through. There is no evidence in Gangu Teli sallu’s filmography of an offbeat successful film. Hrithik was a flopstar in the 2000’s when a few diehard fans of his went to the theatre on the first few days, otherwise he couldn’t pull a movie through for a long period. Gangu Teli sallu hasn’t done 20 films that I will judge him by his highest grossers. He has done more than 75 films more than half of which are big flops/disasters in spite of having heroines like Sridevi, Madhuri, Preity Zinta, Rani Mukherji etc etc. The list is never ending. So he should be called a Gangu Teli Flopstar.

  19. @ sayar why that decade of 90’s will start from 92, because gangu teli debuted in that year. if i go by that logic i should delete chak de india and oso from srk’s career in 2000-09 because hritik was not present that year and will delete all srk films from 2002-04 because aamir was not present. then just think how srk’s career will look in front of aamir and hritik in that decade. the funny thing is aamir had no release in 3 years from 2002 -04 and hritik had no release in 05, 07 and 09 but stll they are matching and beating in terms of blockbuster , highest grosser of the year and record openers. in fact aamir who had no release 3 years had 4 record opening day last decade and hritik who had also no release for 3 years in last decade had 3 record breaking opening day but our gangu teli who had release each and every year had only 1 record breaking opening day in the entire decade, ha ha ha ha .

    and how many times i had to say the same thing that salman was way bigger star than anil kapoor in 99 when biwi no 1 released. look at opening of their films in 99 other than bn1 . and also salman had two other 1 crore plus openers that same year so he had the capability to give the opening of biwi no 1. but in 1995 srk was a non star his solo films like guddu and odyhi opened around 25 lacks . zd, ddlj and rj opened around 50-60 lacks so how can he be credited for that 1 crore opening of trimurti. after trimurti the next year again ebdm opened to 31 lacks and chahat opened to 62 lacks. so where suddenly he got that power to give 1 crore opening for trimurti.
    and to be honest salman and srk no one was a big star in the 90’s. many stars films used to open better than their films, infact even bobby deol. so they were not the contenders for the top spot. and let boi.com update all the films of 90’s then we can know who was the biggest star. i guess amitabh had the most number of record openers . bmcm and insaaniyat are already updated as record openers. as far as i think hum was also a record opener and even agneepath had a chance. he was there even in record opener hkk.

  20. Comment:BOI has already cleared that SRK was the biggest in the 90’s. His only competitor was sunny deol.

  21. This logic of opening record of garbage flop films defining stardom is worthless. It hardly matters whether Trimurti was a record opener or not and whose credit it was as film was a complete garbage flop and SRK has far Superior achievements than this. And see what happens to inconsistent flopstars like Hrithik, even Varun Dhawan has taken over his position just like Abhishekh Bachchan, Saif Ali Khan, Tushshar Kapoor and Rakhi Sawant took over Gangu Teli sallu’s postion in the past. Hrithik and Aamir were hardly any competition that’s why they were doing less films, and lesser films should ensure bigger opening. Just imaging SRK returning after 3 years, or even a single year, it’s bound to create havoc. Let’s look at the analysis again:

    The after-effect of giving atte53.3%ntion to Dishonest Joker’s jokes–plentiful laughs..!! Let’s see 2000-2009’s analysis between SRK and Hrithik( SRK’s extended cameos in Hey Ram and Billu not included). Total films, SRK-20, Hrithik-15:

    Success Ratio:
    SRK-70%
    Hrithik-53.3%( even after doing less number of films)

    Hit Ratio:
    SRK-60%
    Hrithik-33.3%(almost half of SRK’s, even after doing less films than SRK)

    Blockbuster Ratio:
    SRK 20%
    Hrithik-26.7% ( including K3G where SRK was the lead)

    So Hrithik wasn’t even in competition. SRK’s hits=2*Hrithiks Hits, SRK’s success=almost 2*Hrithik’s success. That too after doing only 5 movies more than Hrithik. Blockbusters were same.

    Aamir had the highest Success Ratio, Hit Ratio and Blockbuster Ratio in 2000-2009. Now let’s compare SRK and Aamir’s (9 films) films:

    Aamir’s Hits-6
    SRK’s Hits-12 (2*Aamir’s hits)

    Aamir’s Success-7
    SRK’s Success-14( 2*Aamir’s success)

    And all of SRK’s films were big films with big earnings, not small films and small hits. Let’s not even talk about Overseas where SRK molested each and every actor. Record openings, record weekends and 6 Highest Grosser of the year of India worldwide, 5 of them were back to back( A record which is unbroken till now). So even Aamir wasn’t any competition. Hrithik had a transient stardom right after Kaho Na Pyar Hai craze but that didn’t implement into successful films and he was no competition. That’s why all trade sites agree that SRK was No.1 from 1992-2009. Case Closed.

    Oh no, we forgot another competitor, Sallu the Gangu Teli who delivered record number of Flops, Disasters and Clash Defeats and he had the prestigious achievement of lagging behind “Great stars” like Saif Ali Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Tushshar Kapoor, Rakhi Sawant etc. We shouldn’t forget him and should also include him in our consideration…!!

    Isn’t Gangu Teli the only so-called superstar who has given more Flops/Disasters than success in spite of being the senior Khan and doing 75 films.?? Shame on him. He has been star for only 7 years and let’s see how long it sustains. He has done more than 75 films more than half of which are big flops/disasters in spite of having heroines like Sridevi, Madhuri, Preity Zinta, Rani Mukherji etc etc. He lost clash with Ajay Devgan’s Ek Hi Raasta with his two films Dil Tera Ashiq and Chandramukhi which starred Madhuri and Sridevi respectively. The list is never ending. So he should be called a Gangu Teli Flopstar. On the other hand, whether it is Success ratio, Hit ratio, Blockbuster Ratio, Hit count, Blockbuster Count, Record opening, Highest yearly grosser, overseas blockbusters, Clash-wins, International recognition, Prestigious awards—SRK has excellence in each and every department. THat’s how superstars should be.
