I wasn’t actually presupposed to be a part of the Chennai Categorical Audio launch in Mumbai. However Shekhar (Ravijiani) sir requested me to return and I just about reached there on the final minute.
Earlier than that, when the tune (Titli) had been launched, I tweeted about it and mentioned that it was a possibility of a lifetime to sing for an SRK film and had thanked Vishal (Dadlani) and Shekhar for it and Shah Rukh Khan replied saying ‘thanks’. For a second I believed it was a pretend account however then I noticed that it was a verified account. I had a extremely bizarre emotional response to that. I used to be laughing on the identical time I used to be crying. The overall validation that individual gave me. I wasn’t capable of course of it. My mom mentioned that it was fascinating as a result of I usually do not have such a response, so what was this about? It wasn’t like I had grown up watching Shah Rukh Khan’s movies, it was not like I used to be a die-hard fan. I used to be simply not anticipating a star to reply like that. He may have simply ignored and gone his method. All of this was occurring on-line. There was one thing known as a Tweet longer the place you might weblog. My mom wrote an extended essay saying that she had by no means seen such a response from her daughter and he or she thanked him. That was that and it was over.
A couple of days later I went for the audio launch and Shekhar sir launched me to him.
He was so easy, he was surrounded by hundreds of individuals and I mentioned, ‘Hiya sir’ and he simply remembered my mom’s tweet! And I used to be like ‘wow! ‘. This could not be scripted. And I used to be like, how did he bear in mind this. I requested him, ‘sir, how do you bear in mind it?’ and he gave me a really gentlemanly dimpled smile.
Then the audio launch occurred. I usually do not know what to do after my work is completed as a result of I am unable to do chit chat and small speak. After that I mentioned ‘bye’ to all people. I went to Shah Rukh and thanked him and he mentioned, ‘the place are you going? It is too early! ” after which simply sat there for 20-Half-hour. He was actually sort after which he mentioned, “let me converse to your mom”. I believed he was saying that a while sooner or later he’ll speak to my mom however then he mentioned, ‘give me your telephone.” And I used to be like, “Actually? Now”. Then I dialled and gave my telephone to him and he simply went out for 15 – 20 minutes whereas he smoked and he got here again and mentioned, ‘I had a extremely good dialog together with your mom”.
I then simply touched his ft and he stopped me halfway saying ‘arre, what are you doing!”
These individuals ultimately got here to Chennai for a promotional occasion. They requested me to sing somewhat bit on the occasion after which after I met him, he requested me if my mom was there. He and Deepika reduce throughout the gang and touched my mom’s ft and I used to be considering, ‘Good God, what is that this man! “. I could not wrap my head round it. He was not doing this for brownie factors.
I’ve met my share of stars and I do know that this man was not placing up any pretense. He was not making an attempt to exit of his method. He was so honest and sincere and I believed to myself that some day I need to be like him.
I’ve seen this particular high quality of remembering issues that occurred years in the past with CM Jayalalithaa after which I noticed it in Shah Rukh.
I actually do not have phrases to specific that I want I may bear in mind issues and make individuals really feel the best way he did. It is a very particular high quality. On the whole regular individuals do not do something
That sort of episodic reminiscence of remembering what individuals have written about you is so particular. I do know that even when I strive, I will not be capable of bear in mind issues. We meet lots of people and simply neglect their names. This man was unbelievable.
And thoughts you, I’m nonetheless not somebody you possibly can name a die-hard Shah Rukh Khan fan. I’ve not seen all his films. The sort of human being that he was and the transient assembly sort of impressed me to be a greater individual and never so many individuals have that impact on me. I haven’t been star struck, only a few individuals go away such an impression on you.
This might be a legacy that Shah Rukh Khan will go away behind when his time comes.
I’m not certain however I really feel that he’s pushed by the necessity to make individuals completely happy. When he’s speaking to you, he appears to be like at you and listens to you. If he has given you 30 or 45 seconds to you, they’re utterly yours. It is like a type of scenes in a film the place you might be in a crowd however every little thing round you fades away. He makes you’re feeling like you might be a very powerful individual in that second. Maybe, I’m wondering if he’s doing this as a result of in some unspecified time in the future in time he wished that individuals handled him that method and now he’s treating individuals how he wished he needed to be handled. Neglect a star, I’ve not seen a non-star behave so properly.
Nevertheless a lot I attempt to wrap my head round what the heck is happening from the time of Rhea Chakraborty, to now, I simply can’t fathom it. I’m a pure 90’s child and all of this, every little thing that is happening Twitter, this large hate-mongering that is happening, none of this is smart.
I’m speaking of a totally totally different factor after I say, regardless of who your youngster is, it is pure for folks to guard your offspring. There’s something known as ‘Rules of Pure Justice’. I personally am combating a courtroom case, so I do know what it seems like.
Everybody says, ‘Why do you not go to courtroom? ” however the course of is the punishment. A minimum of after I go to courtroom, there aren’t one million cameras chasing me. The dignity which we had appears to have gone to grime. I do not know what’s going on. So many individuals have so many theories. No matter he’s going by means of as a guardian should be gut-wrenching for the household.
In our nation, the method is the punishment and after I see all these tweets and the arguments that they’re placing forth, I do not know tips on how to fathom that. I simply think about what he should be feeling studying all these tweets.
