Once again, the Bachchans have aired their concern over actor Shah Rukh Khan’s weight loss. Khan, who has lost 10kgs since he started shooting his home production Ra.One, says, “I met Mr Bachchan at an award show and he and Jaya aunty were quite worried about my weight loss.”
The reason — the superhero jacket he wears in the film. While shooting, the actor had to wear the jacket for 8-9 hours every day, and could not eat or drink while wearing it. “The suit is made of silicon, styrofoam and rubber. After wearing it for hours, you tend to lose weight,” he says.
Bachchan had also tweeted last year that ‘SRK should stop wearing that superhero jacket for some days and follow a healthy diet’. The actor says, “I’m working on it.”
This isn’t the only cause of concern. The industry has been buzzing with the ‘lonely SRK’ that everyone saw on filmmaker Karan Johar’s chat show, Koffee With Karan. On the show, SRK had said he “doesn’t know how to keep friends”. So, is he really lonely? “I am quite detached, and the people who love me, understand that. I am not a very social person,” he says, adding that he is thrilled about his stint as the host of reality show, Zor Ka Jhatka, which went on air Tuesday.
