Shahrukh Khan feels the need to change himself and here's why!

Many may think this as an attempt from King Khan to give it back to all those who have been putting forth question to the Baazigar actor like; ‘has Shahrukh lost his charm?’, ‘has he taken his audience for granted?’ and so many more, after the multiple flops that the actor has delivered right from Jab Tak Hai Jaan to Harry Met Sejal and most recently ZERO.

The first ever Critics Choice Film Awards on Sunday; was certainly a night to remember, with actors and film critics all in one place! However; what stole the show that night was the every so witty; Shahrukh Khan's speech at the function!


King Khan was quoted at the event saying," We filmmakers have fought along to give more credit to constructive and jaded ideas. We search for art, we search for form without searching the essence of the stories. We find logic and disregard the free-spirit of story-telling. We have to remind ourselves that truth is formless, only untruths are formed. We as film fraternity have to be truer to ourselves, and hence to the stories we set out to tell."


Taking further advantage of the platform; Bollywood's bona fide badshah said that he feels that the film critics should not make an effort of making the entertainment industry a customer service industry by succumbing to the "star system". The Koyla actor said," So I request all my critics' friends here, please don't be like us Bollywood film stars, and get carried away by what Bollywood succumbed to many years ago - the star system. The star system cannot be the only way of summing up films by our critics. 3 stars, 3.5 stars, 3 and a quarter stars, 5 stars....It's a film, not a hotel for God sake. With critics sprouting all over, film critic is becoming an endangered species. Please let it not get replaced by consumer service." 


Shahrukh also said that times today are such that actors need to reinvent themselves and push their envelope further. "More importantly, stars like me or filmmakers like me have to change myself as an actor and as a filmmaker. I have to promise myself to push the envelope as far as I can. It's what my love for the art demands of me and filmmaking demands of me. I like to be superhero, a midget, a fan with a prosthetic face. To become an actor you need to deconstruct yourselves, you need to discard the self."



While many may think this as an attempt from King Khan to give it back to all those who have been putting forth question to the Baazigar actor like; ‘has Shahrukh lost his charm?', ‘has he taken his audience for granted?' and so many more, after the multiple flops that the actor has delivered right from Jab Tak Hai Jaan to Harry Met Sejal and most recently ZERO, do let us know what do you think of Shahrukh's speech and his though process?
