“Ma, if I’d knew being an actor would make one so rich, I would just be an actor and work my arse-off to earn those wealth during those days when we were not as well-off as now”. Those are my naive words recently spoken to my Mama. But that I found out SRK is one who promotes Education as being an important part of growing up😀 So its a good thing I didn’t forsake my education and take it damn seriously till i forgot everything else.
Here I am staying up late due to work commitment in this Tech-Crazy-World, with YouTube running on my brand new SONY Blu-Ray watching King Khan, Mr Shah Rukh Khan (snapped above), and I say this with utmost respect. He is giving a speech to about 1,500 students at YALE University about life’s motivation. My recent craze of DILWALE made me Google-d “Shah Rukh Khan” specifically and it warms my heart (and it don’t matter than I’m unknown to him) that he is:
- Shared the same faith as I do
- He is a nice guy as much as I can read about him (least controversies, coz I find so little of it)
- He does charity quitely
- He is a family man who works really hard (so he deserves every bit of wealth he earns, because I strongly believe since a young age that One Reaps what One Sows)
- He was granted a Doctorate from Edinburgh University
- He was granted a Datuk-ship from one of the Royal State in Malaysia
- And he has many more honorable awards
- As at the time I wrote this few listings, he is the 2nd most richest Actor IN THE WORLD.
- And his recent movie soundtrack video clip in Reykjavik, Iceland, made me want to go to Iceland.
- And right now, I’m at part 2 of the Yale University talk by Shah Rukh Khan.
I am proud to be a fan of Shah Rukh Khan for his achievements that are no doubt commendable. And having watched his recent movie, DILWALE for the third time – soon to be fourth time. I am happy that the recent movie JOLTED the BOLLYWOOD FEVER madness in me which I left since almost 10 years ago. Wow!
However, on a more personal note, when Google-ing for SRK, once cannot missed the unexplainable friendship-relationship between him and Kajol. Like he puts it, there are just good friends. They are easy, comfortable just the way they are. Nobody can come between them. It kind made me miss once-upon-a-friendship which I have completely lost. But the whole thing thought me a whole lot more about life than what I thought I already knew.
I may still be naive to believe all the things I read about SRK. It don’t matter. I still believe SRK is a good man with a good heart, with good intentions. And that’s enough for me to say I’m a proud fan.
And I’m dreaming of making that Iceland trip happen this year on my birthday even if I have to go there myself on a Virgin Solo Long-Trip *insya Allah*. Then, once there, I’ll send a YouTube video dedication that SRK did somewhat touched my heart in those few motivation speech I watched him delivered at Edinburgh and Yale (via YouTube).
I have another celebrity, turned friend, whom I respect and love dearly like my brother.
I thank ALLAH SWT for all the blessings upon me and those around me.
And thank you Shah Rukh Khan for just brought back the spark in me about love, about crying, about hope. I can’t believe it came through via DILWALE. Maybe, just maybe, the reason I’m watching DILWALE again and again and again and again *at the cinema, mind you* was due to a deeper reason because it brought back a piece of me, which I lost few years back, because I was distracted over other things that I lost sight of myself.
Subhanallah…I believe what I believe.
OR if not any of the above, its just the BOLLYWOOD FEVER that hit me REALLLLLLY HARD :S
