Listen to the MP3 Audio: Thoughts on humanity, fame and love by Shah Rukh Khan at TED Talk Conference
Namaskar. I’m a movie star, I’m 51 years of age, and I don’t use Botox as yet. So I’m clean, but I do behave like you saw like a 21-year-old in my movies. Yeah, I do that.
I sell dreams, and I peddle love to millions of people back home in India who assume that I’m the best lover in the world. If you don’t tell anyone, I’m going to tell you I’m not, but I never let that assumption go away.
I’ve also been made to understand there are lots of you here who haven’t seen my work, and I feel really sad for you. That doesn’t take away from the fact that I’m completely self-obsessed, as a movie star should be.
That’s when my friends, Chris and Juliet called me here to speak about the future you. Naturally, it follows I’m going to speak about the present me.
