October 25 (PTI) – Shah Rukh Khan has always counted his blessings and the Bollywood superstar wants people to have faith in the power of dreams, just as he did.
The 53-year-old Delhi-born actor was all nostalgic in his city. He was here for the closing ceremony of the city’s iconic cinema complex, PVR Anupam. India’s first multiplex, PVR Anupam closed for renovation on Thursday night.
“Some of the things that you don’t think about will happen to you and they are the best things of life. You just don’t know it yet. I don’t want to show off but I’m genuinely a dream come true,” Shah Rukh said, adding, “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.”
The actor said he never thinks of himself as a star in Delhi but sometimes has to behave like one.
“It bores me to be a star that way. I love my job and promise to everybody that as Ajay Bijli and Sanjeev Kumar Bijli keep on making cinema theatres, I’ll keep on making movies to fill them,” he added.
Asked when was the first time he saw himself on the big screen, Shah Rukh said it was the rushes of 1992 film Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman, directed by Aziz Mirza, at Mumbai’s legendary RK Studios.
