Shah Rukh Khan has been at the top of the entertainment industry for more than three decades. The superstar started his career as a television actor with ‘Fauji’ (1988) before making a jump to the big screen with ‘Deewana’ (1992), directed by Raj Kanwar. Since then his stock only rose.
In the initial years of his career, he has been loved for his innocent look, dimpled smile and floppy hair, reports DNA India. However, Khan found himself very ugly while watching clips of his performance in ‘Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman’ (1992). He told reporters at an event in Delhi, “I found myself so ugly. I had such bad hair. I was doing such bad acting in front of Nana Patekar, Amrita Singh and Juhi Chawla. I took the late 4.15 am flight ticket that our producers used to get for us at 25 per cent off and went to the airport, thinking I can’t work in films.”
The superstar further said, “Aziz and Juhi convinced me that it’s not that bad. The final cut would be better. Just like Ajay Bijli lied and got Yes Boss to play at this theatre, those two lied to me. I never looked better, I looked just the same.”
As the event held in the capital, Khan spoke about being a Delhi boy by heart even now. He said, “I’m a lower-middle-class boy without his parents bound to the city of glamour and become a movie star. The world has showered me with their love. This happens in only dreams but I never thought of it. I haven’t believed it, I am still that Delhi boy.”
