At an event at Escobar yesterday, King Khan unveiled the cover of a special Filmfare issue that features him, Amitabh Bachchan and Dilip Kumar on the cover. All three of them are legends in their own rights, so when we got a chance to throw in a question at the press conference, we couldn’t resist asking Shah Rukh what his favourite memories with both these superstars are. In his answer, he shared the best advice he ever received from Amitabh, which had us cracking up! Here’s what he said.
Shah Rukh says: “I asked Amitji, what’s the last thing you think when you go on stage? He said, “Main tumhe batana chahata hoon ki jo aakhri cheez hai, woh bahut important hai [I want to tell you that the last thing is the most important]. Just before you go on stage to speak or perform, zip zaroor check kar lena ki khuli na ho [make sure you check that your zip is done]. I think that’s the greatest learning I’ve got from the greatest Mr Amitabh Bachchan, because it’s basic, it’s honest, it’s clear.”
Be sure to check out the video – he even talks about that time he watched Devdas (1955) with Dilip Kumar:
