Bollywood superstar, Shah Rukh Khan has been felicitated at the India-UK business summit in London for his work in the film industry.
The ET India-UK Strategic Conclave event was held to discuss the economic relations between India and UK.
Khan was cited in Times of India saying, “The growth for Indian films has been much smaller compared to the growth of television in India. The ratio of theatres to the audience area is still very small, we have very few theatres compared to the audience we can garner. In the interiors of India, there are not many screens for people to go and I think there is a huge market here for entrepreneurs to get into making low-cost theatres.”
Upon being felicitated with The Economic Times Game Changers of India – Hall of Fame for his incredible work in the film industry, he said, “I take this opportunity to thank a lot of people, actors, actresses, and the audience for allowing me to continue unencumbered with any idea that I had, they gave me the ability to just go ahead and give it a shot, try and go wrong if I may, and more often than not they allowed me to go wrong”. The actor further said, “Business is becoming about millions, targets and projections, though I fully respect the managerial capacity of business, but I like to think of it as the people who work with me allowed me the imaginary capacity, they allowed me to imagine and they managed that imagination. So, when you become a game changer you cannot take it upon yourself, there are loads of people involved and the audience as well around the world accepts you doing the stuff you do and think it is entertaining.”
