"Shah Rukh Khan says after all the success he has had, if he doesn’t take chances with the films he does, King Khan—the title given to him courtesy his superstardom—will become an empty metonym.
“I have succeeded with things that I never knew would succeed. I also feel that if you really are the king, you should have the choice to make your own choices. A king without choices is not a king at all.
“I am only exercising my choice to do what I like to do. I believe that if I am king, and don’t take chances I will remain one just for namesake,” he told Deccan Chronicle."
There wasn't a thread for this yet. What do you think about this? Is it worth it to take chances like Zero? I would say no, SRK needs to mostly make movies that appeal to most people from now on. You can still have good content but at the same time accomplish that, other actors have shown that.
As he says at the end of the day it's his choice obviously but I think at this point he is already just a king in namesake because of his movie choices this decade. This interview doesn't make me optimistic honestly
