ShahrukhFrom being a debutant TV actor to becoming the Baadshah of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan may have always been in the fast lane of life, but when it comes driving on the road, he is happy to stay behind. "My kids sometimes tell me to drive faster," says SRK. "But I ensure that I’m behind a car."

The star recounts a recent incident where a classmate of his son, Aryan, was the victim of a road accident. "I knew that boy, and it was very sad," says the actor, advising youngsters to drive carefully. "There are so many new cars coming to India, but the infrastructure is just not there," he says. "So one has to be careful while driving."

What about Delhi’s reputation of having the rashest drivers in India? "I think it’s one obnoxious thing every city tries to derive pride from," he says. "Rash drivers are everywhere."
