Shah Rukh Khan’s Words of Wisdom: ‘Everyone has a bit of writer, director and producer in them’
Shah Rukh Khan was speaking at the trailer launch of Marathi film, ‘Smile Please’. He shared that the main aim of making a film is to invoke a mix of emotions in the audiences
Superstar Shah Rukh Khan holds an experience of a whopping 27 years in Bollywood. So, when he speaks, it’s undeniably taken as expert advice. This time around, King Khan weighed in on the potential of every individual. According to him, there is a little bit of a biographical writer, director and producer in every human being. Interacting with the media at the music and trailer launch of a Marathi film titled 'Smile Please', Shah Rukh said, “I think there is a little bit of a biographical writer, director and producer in all of us, so some parts of our life always get reflected in some special films and I am sure that Vikram Phadnis (director) has made an extremely special film."
During the event, Phadnis mentioned that his upcoming film's story is loosely inspired by his mother. Shah Rukh revealed he advised Phadnis to make action and comedy films. "Backstage, I asked Vikram ‘Have you made a good film or not?' and with my current track record of films, I am no one to ask him that. But when you work for so many years, you can be bit patronizing,” mentioned Shah Rukh, throwing shade at his biggest flop film, ‘Zero’.
"I told him to make action and comedy films, but he said 'I made this film from my heart', so I think there is no better film in the world when it comes from the heart. I hope this film reaches everybody,” mentioned Shah Rukh. He shared that the main aim of making a film is to invoke a mix of emotions in the audiences. "I think the whole purpose of a film and storytelling sometimes is to invoke a feeling of compassion, love, togetherness and goodness in spite all the emotional swings that we might face. I feel every film and every story's main aim is to remind us that we are not alone in our journey of good and evil."'Smile Please' is slated to release on July 19.
