I don’t crack under pressure. I thrive under pressure.
That’s what Shah Rukh Khan said when someone asked him when was the last time he cracked under pressure, at the TAG Heuer event yesterday. Now, we all know that SRK is blessed with the gift of gab and he always manages to weave magic with his words. So I guess I don’t need to mention how thrilled I was when I got a chance to converse with him personally right before the event.
I was awe-inspired by his sheer presence and when he started talking, I had a strong urge to pinch myself because I have interviewed the king of my hearts a thousand times over in my dreams and IT WAS FINALLY HAPPENING FOR REAL! After spending four years in the field of film journalism and interacting briefly with the B-town Baadshah at various press conferences in the past, I finally managed to get a quick interview of the superstar, all thanks to my amazing boss, MissMalini.
After that I headed to Stage 2 at the iconic Mehboob studios where the crowd went hysterical as SRK made a grand entry on stage at the spectacular evening hosted by Tag Heuer symbolizing their brand motto, Don’t Crack Under Pressure. Hosted by popular anchor Shibani Dandekar, the event was a huge success.
Talking about the new campaign, Mr. Khan shared:
When you achieve success, it’s tempting to coast along and let your guard down. The key is to keep pushing. You have to find it in yourself, and be motivated by what’s next. The only way not to crack under pressure is to find your own space and never stop trying.
From his decade-long association with the esteemed brand to the ‘clash’ between the release of his upcoming film, Raees with Salman Khan‘s Sultan – he spoke about many interesting things. Check everything out here.
I also asked him about his recent vacation with his kids, Aryan and Suhana in London (video blog coming soon!) and his experience of working with Kajol after so many years. Stay tuned for more on MissMalini’s World Season 2 on TLC! You can check out all our Season 1 episodes here.
