Fans quoted what they thought was an apt reply should have been. When Shah Rukh was asked in Berlin if he’d be willing to work in Hollywood, he had quipped, “My English is not good.” Here is what India’s megastar had said.
“If they give me a role of a dumb person who doesn’t speak, maybe. I am not trying to be modest but I am 42 years old, I am little brown, I don’t have any special USP as an actor. I don’t know Kung fu, I don’t dance the Latin salsa, I am not tall enough. I think anyone who is my age in the Western world, I have seen recent films of Europe, films of what you call ‘the dream factory’, I think there is no space for me. There is no place for me, because I don’t think I am that talented. So I would like to continue doing work in India, and hopefully take Indian cinema to the world.”
Mahesh attempts to explain his stance as Bollywood is angry
There is no doubt that Mahesh statements have angered his bollywood fans, however he apologized and explained that he did not intend so. Also he added, “I strongly feel, why should we go to another industry by leaving ours behind?”
