Shah Rukh Khan got emotional when he saw a video shared by wife Gauri Khan on his career.
Bollywood Badshah Shah Rukh Khan got emotional when he saw a video shared by his wife Gauri Khan on his 26-year career in Bollywood that saw a rollercoaster ride that took him from being a ‘Fauji’ and back to ‘Zero’. Not that he is a zero, but this refers to his upcoming film.
Gauri Khan on Friday had shared a video of her husband’s 26-year journey in the Hindi film industry. She captioned the video “26 years of memories,” and tagged Shah Rukh with a heart emoji. “All these years have gone by in a flash,” says Khan commented on the video.

The video lasts 6 minutes and opens with Shah Rukh making a dramatic entry into frame. Shah Rukh then takes us step by step from his journey from being a ‘Fauji’ to a ‘Deewana’. “I have learnt a lot on this roller-coaster ride of love, hate, happiness and, yeah, sometimes sadness,” Shah Rukh says in the video.
He says every year of his career taught him valuable lessons like competitiveness and confidence. “In 1995, Raj taught me love, like he did to everyone else,” he says, referring to one of the biggest hits of his career, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge. He says he still wonders if the audience loved him or Raj. “The lines were blurry.”
He says he wears the Baadshah crown with pride ‘even to this day’ and even sings a little bit of the title song of his 1999 film. Shah Rukh also speaks about becoming a father – to his children Aryan, Suhana and AbRam. “I kind of look like my daughter in Asoka,” he laughs.
He says with time he has matured. He’s realised that one’s name does not matter. “What matters is who you are.” Which gives him the perfect segue into My Name is Khan, one of his most acclaimed performances.
“Here I am in 2018 playing a vertically-challenged person, referring to upcoming film, Zero, in which he plays a dwarf. “But I still stand tall,” he says, “thanks to all your love.”
