What did Amitabh Bachchan say that made Shah Rukh Khan afraid of becoming a star?

Shah Rukh Khan is one of the biggest superstars in the country today and is also known for his work around the globe. The actor once talked about a chat he had with the legendary Amitabh Bachchan, where the veteran actor advised him about the downside of becoming a star. 

Talking in the AIB Podcast in 2017, Shah Rukh recalled how he was sitting backstage with Bachchan ahead of a show that they were doing and they started a conversation. 

"Suddenly while talking he said this, 'Now that you've become a big star, whatever you do you'll always be in the wrong. So the first thing you do, if you are ever at fault, is apologise with folded hands,” said Khan. 

He then said that he was young at the time so he asked the veteran actor what if he did not do anything wrong and Bachchan’s answer was that he should still apologise and that he should always talk humbly. 

Khan continued recollecting the conversation and said that Bachchan said that even if someone is rude to him and if he hits back, people would make up stories that the star was drunk or that money has made him proud. Bachchan also pointed out that there is “absolutely nothing” Khan can do even if these things happened to him. Khan also remembered that he was scared after listening to Bachchan and that he did not want to be a star anymore. 

Shah Rukh Khan is finally ready to return to the big screen after four years and is currently filming for Rajkumar Hirani’s next titled Dunki. The actor also has Pathaan and Jawaan in the works.
