Mumbai: Superstar Shah Rukh Khan has had an awe-inspiring journey in Bollywood for 25 years now. While he is known as the ‘Badshah of Bollywood’ today, 25 years ago, he was just a guy who wanted to make it big in the city of dreams.
The biography ’25 Years Of A Life’ has captured his journey in the world of films, where each of its chapters are a director’s take on a particular character created by them and portrayed by SRK. The book was unveiled by King Khan himself at an event on Wednesday night.
While addressing the media at the launch, Shah Rukh recounted his early days in the industry. “I was an odd-looking guy, I was not from a film background, I spoke too fast but I am thankful to all the filmmakers and those friends who gave me an opportunity. So for me, if a newcomer comes, I have been trained by people like these to respect the newcomer and love them,” he said.
The actor later took to twitter and thanked author Samar Khan for the book. He even specially mentioned how his younger son AbRam loved the book. SRK wrote, “Thk u @samarmumbaikhan this is so special. The book is lovely & my lil 1 is happy to c so many papas #25yearsofalife”.
