Bollywood stars such as Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Anil Kapoor, Naseeruddin Shah, Irrfan Khan and others have made it to Hollywood, and Shahrukh Khan was asked if he's ready to debut in Hollywood! Shahrukh Khan joked that he'll never debut in Hollywood, as he feels his English is a little weak and also stated that Hollywood actors will one day make an entry in Bollywood instead.
Shahrukh Khan opened up to Economic Times by saying, "They have to look at me; I can't look at them. I look at the moon every day but I don't reach for it. It started with Om Puriji and now Priyanka, Irrfan and so many others are doing it. Nawazuddin Siddiqui is getting some films. Amitji (Amitabh Bachchan) has done some, Anupam Kher too has and it's wonderful. But I have never been offered an opportunity. I don't even know if I am good enough to do it - I think my English is a little weak (smiles)."
The Baadshah of Bollywood, Shahrukh Khan further commented, "My own attempt is to make Indian films watched at that level. Again, not taking away from the greatness of anything that others have achieved, I'd like Tom Cruise to say one day that 'I've been given a chance in a Hindi film'. Man, that will be wonderful. Christopher Nolan would say that there is a producer in India who wants him to make a film. Inshallah, that will happen."
So there you go, folks! Shahrukh Khan will not be debuting in Hollywood anytime soon, but the actor dreams that Hollywood stars will make an entry in Bollywood instead. Well, no wonder they call Shahrukh Khan the man with a different thought process altogether.
On the work front, Shahrukh Khan is currently shooting for his upcoming movie Zero, which also stars Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif. The movie is directed by Aanand L Rai and for the first time ever, he'll be seen playing the role of a dwarf. Zero is co-produced by his wife Gauri Khan and the film is scheduled to hit the theatres on December 21, 2018.
