Bollywood Hungama OTT India Fest Day 1: Karan Johar shares how Shah Rukh Khan is on sets; says, “His mission on set is to make everyone smile”
Notable filmmaker and producer Karan Johar, known for his numerous contributions to Indian cinema, graced the event with his presence. During the discussion, Karan Johar took a moment to reflect on his experiences, particularly highlighting his collaboration with the iconic actor Shah Rukh Khan.
Johar expressed his admiration and fondness for Shah Rukh Khan, a legendary figure in the world of Indian cinema. He described the experience of working with Khan in glowing terms, saying, “Shahrukh Khan is, in my opinions, like the best experience you can have on a film set. Shah Rukh Khan is not just magnetic and charming, not just magnanimous as an artist, but also majestic, but also so human and real.”
He continued to emphasize Khan’s remarkable qualities as an actor and individual, adding, “When he’s on that set, his mission is to make everyone on that set smile, happy and make the scene happen to its optimum potential. He is the most unselfish actor. He will do for the film, never for him, his character or his personal performance. He will always make sure that the scene more than anything else, he has the largest heart I think there is and when he opens his hands while it’s actually his heart opening along with those hands, because he’s the most large-hearted man I know.”
Karan Johar’s admiration for Shah Rukh Khan extended to his profound influence on the concept of love in Indian cinema. He remarked, “He is the emperor of entertainment and he’s also the creation of love in cinema. We know love because of Shah Rukh Khan. If there was another name for love, it would be like, like love you can very well say, ‘I SRK you’ because SRK is love.”
