He is one of the biggest stars in tinsel town, but that’s not enough for Shah Rukh Khan. “I have always wanted to be a porn star,” said SRK, while alluding to Hollywood actor Sylvester Stallone’s success story, who started out as a porn star.



The actor, who was in the Capital to launch management guru Arindam Chaudhuri’s book,

, added, “I am going to take my flag and put it in America as the world’s best porn star. The next time you hear about me when I’m in Mumbai, I will be the world’s biggest porn star… that’s what I’m going to use all my hard work to become.” The actor, who has written the foreward of the book, also took a dig at his detractors when the emcee introduced him as a personality who is at the “zenith of success”. “It has been a long time since people said nice things about me,” he quipped.



Khan confessed he does not know how he became so successful in films. “I am still trying to figure it out,” he said, adding that everyone should try and do something simple and meaningful at their workplace. “My mother always told me that our thoughts become everything around us. I feel I should act so that people cry — not the producer or the distributor, but the audience,” he said. That said, the actor revealed that currently he’s on a break from work for two months because of an injury.



Right before he left, the actor said, “I would have danced for you, but it’s not that kind of a launch.” He did take out time to autograph some books though, driving the fans at the venue crazy.
