Shah Rukh Khan
Bollywood Badshah, Shah Rukh Khan has admitted that in his college days he used to hope that one day he will become as famous as Amitabh Bachchan.
“I remember, my friends and I used to go and stand outside Kirori Mal College. We used to stand there for hours and look at the building, its gate and at the students going in and out of the college and say, ‘Kaash koi humein bhi, Amit ji ki tarah filmon mein kaam de de”, Badshah of Bollywood said.
SRK also claimed that it was during his college days when he developed keen interest in acting.
“I was very fond of Economics. I got 72 percent marks and I personally think that was a good enough percentage. Post Hans Raj, I wanted to join the London School of Economics but that didn’t happen. But I tell all the people I meet to read and write as much as they can. I tell my kids – Aryan and Suhana– to read a lot, as it is studying and acquiring more knowledge all the time that helps one in the long run”, Shah Rukh Khan said.
“I remember going to the canteen but I have to admit that I wasn’t very social in college. But I do miss going to the canteen. I also miss my co-students and the hostellers’ fights. I was a keen sportsperson aur main bahut khelta tha. My favourite sport was football. I have fond memories of my bike too”, the actor added.
When asked that what he would have been if not an actor, SRK said, “Either been a teacher or a Manchester United player – I know that for a fact”.
