Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan recently met a few ­students of Stanford University, US, in Mumbai, and shared some of his life’s experiences with them, including learning that ­'frailties and failures need to be celebrated'. The students had come to Mumbai to meet some public figures who have done well in their careers and are role models to many. SRK was at the top of their wish list. As much as the students were excited to meet him, Shah Rukh himself hoped to learn more than what the students could learn from him.
“I don’t have a speech ­prepared and I won’t be able to tell you about business. But yes, I can share with you the frailties that I have as a ­person. Because no matter how successful you are and no matter how much money you have, your frailties always remain with you,” he said. “Frailties or failures need to be celebrated. One should never fear them, but should learn from them. And you will only learn from them and not fear them when you have the feeling that you have ­nothing to lose. I always like to go back to that feeling,” he added.
He also spoke about the film he is currently shooting for, which is being directed by Maneesh Sharma.
Besides that, the 49-year-old answered questions about success, his domestic T20 franchise and shared the fact that he only does business in an area he is passionate about. “I am passionate about films, kids and cricket, and hence, I make cinema,” he said.
The session ended with the students posing with SRK and having a quick ­personal chat.
