Post the failure of his last film ‘Zero’, Shah Rukh Khan has chosen to take a break from films. As the actor was awarded an honorary doctorate at a recently held film festival in Melbourne, Australia – he spoke about his latent capacity to do some great cinema, and the fact that he can still work for a good 20-25 years more.
While everyone awaits the announcement of the project that he will next be working on, Shah Rukh Khan told PTI–
What drives me to do a film is the people around me who make such a great cinema… And I think I have a huge amount of capacity to do some really good cinema. I have 20-25 years of good cinema left in me.
Shah Rukh Khan has never shied away from talking about the failure of his last film Zero, and he reiterated the same in the interview-
I just finished the last film I made and to put it lightly, it was a disaster. I said to myself that let me enjoy a little bit of ‘un-success’ as I had success for so long. So I have taken some time off for the next four or five months. As a matter of fact, I’m on these breaks… Coming here and meeting people, realising and discovering new stories, doing intellectual speaking.
So is there no film in store for the actor as of now? Shah Rukh Khan reveals that he is toying with the idea of a fun action film for his next.
I have not signed any film. I have been hearing a lot of stories actually not just for me, just for production and so on. I don’t know myself, I wanted to do an action film, a fun film. But I have not given it a thought, I’m okay actually.
The actor will reportedly be seen in a cameo in R. Madhavan’s Rocketry: The Nambi Effect. He is also bringing Netflix’s highly popular Spanish show Money Heist to Indian audiences.
