'Films Are For Entertainment, Messages Are For The Post Office'

He pulled our leg for asking “Shabana Azmi like" questions but went on to talk at length on issues beyond his latest film and his six pack abs.

If Shah Rukh Khan were not an actor he would have certainly made a great copywriter with his ready repertoire of sharp one-liners. He pulled our leg for asking “Shabana Azmi like" (read intellectual, pretentious) questions but went on to talk at length on issues beyond Om Shanti Om (OSO) and his six pack abs. The extended interview with Namrata Joshi was conducted, between shots, in his makeup room. And, yes, he did keep his shirt very courteously on.

You seem to be playing more Salman Khan than SRK in this OSO song?

What I am doing right now is a take on what heroes do in 2007--bare bodied dance. It’s a mix, generically, of all the stars of the 1990s and 2000s. It’s about being bare bodied, cooler, with longer hair, saying “babe” and “yo”. Some of these heroes are also untalented, unprofessional like me. In the film I am playing two different people from two different generations, 70s and 2000, but the commonality is that both are bad actors.
