Superstar Shahrukh Khan, who is often referred as the romantic
hero of Bollywood, believes that the art is important and not the
"An actor is just like water... he should just adapt the colour
and shape. I believe the art is important, the artist is not. The
art remains and not the artist and as an actor, I feel if I think
like that I can work with some amount of purity. The purity will be
retained if I believe that my art is important than myself," Shahrukh Khan said at an event to launch a biography on him by
director Samar Khan.
He further added, "25 years in the film industry was a big dream
for a boy who came from Delhi all those years ago. These years have
been full of excitement, hard work and various ups and downs and
this book is a tribute to all these film makers who believed in me
and my dreams.''
''I am extremely thankful to all my fans who have made me who I
am today and would like to thank Royal stag mega music, Samar and
everybody associated with this book," he said.
Recalling his initial days, he said: "I was an odd-looking guy,
I was not from a film background, I spoke too fast but I am
thankful 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." With
