I am an actor, not an entrepreneur: Shah RukhApril 15th, 2012 - 5:48 pm ICT by IANS
Kolkata, April 15 (IANS) Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan who co-owns the Kolkata Knight Riders IPL franchisee and runs a film production house, Sunday said he was not an entrepreneur but an actor who endeavors to make a difference with his acting.
“I am hardly an entrepreneur. I don’t even think of myself as a star. I see myself as someone who is trying to make a difference with his acting,” said Khan addressing the media at the inauguration of Prayag Film City (PFC) in West Midnapore’s Chandrakona, some 130 km from here.
“I come from a middle-class background. I like to work 18-20 hours a day and for the last 30 years I have been following this schedule. I have two passions: sports and film making. I have a production house and a cricket franchisee,” said Khan.
Khan, who was present at the curtain raiser of the phase-1 of the sprawling PFC, said the facility will make a difference to the art of film making not only in eastern India but to the entire film fraternity of the country.
“I feel the film city will become a one stop film making centre where you come with a good story and go out with a great film.”
He has also been signed in as the brand ambassador the PFC.
The actor also regaled the gathering with some of his famous dialogues from his films “Don”, “Baazigar” and “Devdas” and danced to a popular song from the movie “Ra-One”.
