I am a ‘fakir’, I don’t celebrate success: Shah Rukh Khan

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan has been ruling Bollywood for the last two-decades but he says he doesn’t celebrate success and loves fulfilling desires of his children. “I am a ‘fakir’ that ways, I don’t celebrate success. If you meet me for seven days I would be in the same pants. I love giving things to people. I don’t buy anything for myself. I don’t have the requirement to spend money on myself,” said Shah Rukh.
“I don’t have any personal desires, I love fulfilling desires of my children. I don’t listen to music so I don’t buy speakers. I have lot of shoes, but all that comes from shootings because I wear sneakers,” he said.
However, Shah Rukh says his expenditure is mostly on his lifestyle. “I love big things, so we have a big house, big office and big films, my money gets spent on all this. The only time I spend money is on filmmaking. I don’t go out to restaurant, I eat at home and that too same food. I don’t buy new clothes. And whatever I have an excitement for, I am already endorsing it,” he said.
After achieving immense success, Khan now has a huge empire- a film production company, VFX studio, IPL team, investments in companies and properties abroad. “I feel I should do something new as I have got the opportunity to do it. A lower middle class boy comes from Delhi has not even a penny to his name, parents are not there, orphan and you get these opportunities,” added Shah Rukh.

“But if I don’t do all this (investments in IPL team, VFX studio), then I would be the biggest star at leisure doing my acting, endorsements and take some holidays,” he said.
The Fan star is aware that he may fail at doing things, but he is more content with taking risks and trying out different things. “I may fail but at least I gave it a shot. We all will fail, we all will have an end to our career one day, so let’s try something new,” the 50-year-old actor said.
