Returning compliments, flattering girls, accepting flowers, signing autographs and praising his wife Gauri Khan, Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan was at his romantic best at a press conference on Wednesday.
“I have gifted my entire life to Gauri,” Shah Rukh told reporters when asked whether his forthcoming film Billu Barber, releasing Feb 13, was a Valentine's Day gift for his wife.
“She produces all my movies and only if the film does well, she accepts any gifts. If my movie flops, then she does not accept any gift. I feel 'Billu Barber' is a beautiful film about relationships, love and friendship. I also have a good part in the film along with Irrfan Khan and Lara Dutta. If the film works well, my wife will accept a gift otherwise she will throw me out of the house,” he quipped.
The actor, who is nursing a shoulder injury, says he has not made any Valentine's Day plans yet due to his medical condition.
“I want to get done with this surgery so I don't think it is a good time to plan for Valentine's Day. Right now, I am very much concerned about my arm,” he maintained.
The crowd went berserk from the moment he entered the lobby of the swish Emporio Mall, where he came as the brand ambassador of Swiss watch brand Tag Heuer.
A young die-hard fan of the actor couldn't shy away from shouting “Shah Rukh, we love you” in the middle of the press conference and the actor was quick enough to respond.
He said: “I love you too sweetie. Let's get married soon after this. Whenever I come to Delhi, I keep getting married - it's a thing with me. I like Delhi girls a lot but girl, my daughter would be as old you after a few years.”
To another young journalist, who intended to ask Shah Rukh's opinion on Shilpa Shetty's entry into the Indian Premier League (IPL) that was announced Monday, the superstar quipped that she resembled Shilpa's younger sister Shamita and that he would love to do a “Baazigar 2” with her.
King Khan, as he is popularly known, obliged nearly every young child present there by shaking hands with them besides signing autographs and also accepting little tokens of love like roses and pens from them.
