SRK Wows #IAASummit Summit, Belts out Popular Number '
KOCHI: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan on Thursday hummed the lyrics of ‘Phir bhi dil he Hindustani’ from the film, which also bears the same name, as he enthralled a packed audience at Le Meridien Hotel here during the inauguration of the silver jubilee celebrations of International Advertising Agency’s (IAA) India Chapter.
During his address he apologised to the audience for delivering a speech, which had been made several times before. Nonetheless, SRK hastened to add that a few changes had indeed been made to the text.
“Please don’t think that I am lazy and have run out of creative juices. I am delivering a speech which I had made several times before. But I can assure you that it comes with changes here and there. The reason is that the place from which I am coming is not at all friendly for creativity,” said SRK.
The superstar had, in fact, come down all the way from Iceland, which is the locale for his new film with actress Kajol.
The speech that he delivered touched upon all the products for which he is the brand ambassador. He also lauded the organisers for selecting the theme of ‘what’s coming next?’ as it will prepare for the future endeavours.
“The time(when) I entered the advertising world there were many who reminded me that the decision would prove a liability. But at the time I had nothing to lose as I was not all that rich. I jumped into it when the opportunity came,” said SRK.
After the address the actor took a few questions from the audience. He also gyrated to the tune of ‘lungi dance’ from ‘Chennai Express’. The event which will conclude on Saturday will be attended by cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar.
