My presence can make an off-beat film on-beat says Shah Rukh Khan

SRK Happy New Year 340x

Shah Rukh Khan, who is busy promoting his forthcoming film ‘Happy New Year’, recently said that his presence can make any unconventional cinema turn into a mainstream money-spinner. Also, Khan said that he does not understand the off-beat cinema genre.

Questioning the genre of off-beat film, Khan told IANS, “What is an off-beat film? You put me in an off-beat film and it will become on-beat. Like ‘Chak De! India’ was an off-beat film and it did really well money wise. It is the biggest success of my career.”

“I think any film that I am part of will become bigger than it was meant to be as I am big movie star. Even if it is an off-beat movie, people will watch it and so it will become on-beat. I did ‘Maya Memsaab’, ‘Oh Darling Yeh Hai India’, ‘Darr’, ‘Baazigar�۪, ‘Swades’, ‘Chak De! India’ and others so I do off-beat films whenever I feel like doing it,” the actor said.

Stating that he only picks up those unconventional projects which he can relate to, Khan said, “I will never do anything that others want me to do. I have enough money, I am a rich star, I am famous and have enough awards. I will do films that make me happy like I did ‘Ra.One’ because my children like superheroes. My father played hockey so I wanted to do ‘Chak De’. It is important to feel excited about doing what you want to.”

Also, Khan said that though his next ‘Fan’ and Rahul Dholakia’s ‘Raees’ fall in the category of off-beat cinema, he is still happy to be a part of them.
