I didn’t create Shah Rukh Khan, Barry John


-The Indian Express

WEB DESK: Shah Rukh Khan a.k.a King Khan is known for so many reasons. Started acting career with aggressive roles to appear as romantic hero in films, Khan has given so many super hits to b-town. 

He has huge fan following across the globe. And surely, there won’t be any other Shah Rukh Khan ever in future. But, have you thought about any support he had back in early days that benefited him? He has learnt acting from known acting teacher and theatre director, Barry John who has taught numerous stars of b-town.

Back in 80s and before the stardom, King Khan trained by Barry but he never claimed anything. Recently, while talking to media on the occasion of Jagran Film Festival, he said,“I didn’t create Shah Rukh Khan and I take no credit for that” adding,“t’s a fact. We came together, we worked in theatre together for a while. It was mostly enjoyable and beneficial to both of us. But then he moved on, he is on another planet now. I don’t have any communication with him.”

Moreover, Barry John has trained and taught other actors i.e., Manoj Bajpayee, Frieda Pinto, Richa Chadha, Arjun Kapoor and Varun Dhawan. But the stardom Khan has attained is purely due to his talent. Bollywood has multiple male actors but DDLJ star has created his own world.
