For superstar Shahrukh Khan, the greatest way to count
his years in the film industry is by his landmark movies.
"The greatest way for an actor to count his years is for each of
them to be defined by a film. DDLJ (Dilwale Dulhania
le Jayenge) year, Swades year, KKHH (Kuch Kuch
Hota Hai) year...and so on," Shahrukh posted on Twitter
Tuesday.His film Swades completed nine years
Tuesday. The superstar said that since the making of the film was
so close to his heart, he could not bear to see it end and hence he
never saw the film.
"Making Swades was such an emotionally overwhelming
experience that I never saw the finished product. Didn't want the
feeling to end," he said.The 47-year-old also thanked Swades
director Ashutosh Gowariker and his team for the
project."Thank you Ashutosh for changing my life. Gayatri
(Joshi), A.R. Rahman and Javed (Akhtar) sahab for helping calling
'a Swades a Swades'. Respect," he said.
The film received critical acclaim but it did not enjoy a great
run at the box office.
SRK is currently shooting for Farah Khan's Happy New Year which is
slated to release on Diwali next year.
