“Before I could become a fan, I became a star. I still don’t understand how people love me so much… care for me, and their mothers and children and families [also shower affection]. It is quite a responsibility for me sometimes,” said Shah Rukh Khan.
The actor had been shooting for Maneesh Sharma’s directorial Fan, and admitted that the movie was a difficult journey.
In the film, SRK plays a fan who is obsessed with a superstar who is his look-alike, and travels to Mumbai to meet the actor.
When asked about his experience of playing the roles of an obsessed fan and a superstar, the megastar said it felt “quite schizophrenic”.
“One has to maintain a dignity of what a fan is. That part I have kept in mind. It’s been a difficult journey as an actor… quite schizophrenic… quite dichotomous,” he said.
The Dilwale star is still puzzled as to how he has become a star, and reveals that he does not love himself.
“Not at all… I am amazed that I should have become a star. My general belief is people who become actors are people who do not love themselves. They just want to be a different person every morning. People who love themselves become extremely fantastic stars. So I am not a big fan of myself,” he added.
SRK’s upcoming release ‘Fan’ will hit silver screens on April 16, 2016.
