Biopics are a new flavour that Bollywood has been keen on for some time. However, as one of the most well-known and loved actors of the industry, Shah Rukh Khan has said that he would not like to see such a film made on his life.
I am for biopics. I would love to do one if I suit the role. But if you are asking me if I want someone to make a biopic on me, I۪d say no! I will be very honest. It is very awkward to think of myself as so important that I should play me on screen! As a matter of fact, my personal life is so unimportant that I would never allow a Shah Rukh Khan to star in it. I would rather say to myself, Tum bohut baade star ho, Itne chhote aadmi ke life ke baare mein hum tumko nahi le sakta۪(Laughs) I would never get cast to play my own life because I don۪t think my life is so important or interesting, said Khan in recent interview with DNA.
The actor added, You have Amitji, Kishore Kumarji, Lataji, Mohd Rafi saab, Guru Dutt, Raj Kapoorsaab, Dilip Kumar saab, Yash there are so many people that you can write about, stories which are more interesting and more pertinent to the film industry than mine. I am too small a person to have a film made about my life.
Khan is currently shooting for Maneesh Sharma۪s Fan۪ which is a Yash Raj Films production.
