Shahrukh Khan is known as the ' Badshah Of Bollywood' , but off late he has become the 'Badshah Of Witty One-Liners' as well. SRK is one of those actors who is entertaining both on and off-screen. The man is a genius and he proves it with his inspirational witty quotes.
SRK's witty side is often seen during press meets, when reporters ask him dumb questions, he makes sure to give them back in the most astounding way. Once a reporter had tried to act smart and questioned him, "When will you start making different movies? Better movies?"
, to which SRK being at his wittiest best replied, "When will you start asking different questions? Better questions?" Wow, now that was one awesome answer and my personal favourite.
Shahrukh Khan is multi-talented, he has been a successful actor, producer, TV show host, anchor, businessman and philanthropist. He is just the best at everything he does and he isn't least bit shy to say it out loud too. He is often heard telling, " I am the best", and indeed he is the best. In fact he is so good at what he does that he is an inspiration to many in Bollywood. Actor Sidharth Malhotra whose latest movie Ek Villain was a huge success at Box Office told, "A lot of people thought it was suicidal for me to play a dark character at such an early stage of my career. But I had a perfect example in SRK, who played negative characters in Darr, Baazigar and Anjaam towards the beginning of his career. So in a way, he inspired me to take the plunge. Back then, he was the romantic hero of Hindi cinema who managed to pull off a negative character with élan. My character in Ek Villain is my tribute to him."
Shahrukh Khan is currently busy with his movie Happy New Year starring Deepika Padukone as his leading lady. He has been in talks with Dev D director Anurag Kashyap as well. Looks like SRK after delivering a blockbuster hit like Chennai Express is again going to be back with a bang. Having said that, let us take a look at his most entertaining witty one-liners.
