SRK-Still Reading Khan, a book chronicling Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan's personal and professional achievements will be released on October 11.
The book is written by Khan's close friend and television script writer Mushtaq Sheikh.
Mushtaq has over the years built close friendships with the film community and says that he has come to regard several colleagues as an extended family. "One such valued member is Shah Rukh. The close proximity with Shah Rukh's world and the firm ties of friendship and as a fellow traveller for a good part of our lives, led to destiny chosing me to be one who would chronicle the story of his journey," the writer said.
"There's always been a patriarch for every field. He leads, people follow. He takes new paths - praised if he's successful, derided if he fails. But then somebody has to do the job. Somebody has to invent for the others to reinvent. Somebody has to stand up for our fifty six year old philosophy - for the people, by the people, to the people. Shah Rukh Khan did just that. He invades areas where no actor has ever been,"he added.
According to him, the book is the story of a survivor, a winner, a never-ending story of success.
Mushtaq's other famous friend is Television soap queen Ekta Kapoor and he has written scripts for television serials produced by Ekta's Balaji telefilms besides penning The Making ofAsoka, a film produced by Shah Rukh Khan.
