When Shah Rukh shared his Hichki moment

Once, during the promotion of her film, Hichki, Rani Mukherji had asked celebrities to share the hiccups they had faced in life. Her close friend, Shah Rukh was among the first ones to talk about the same and shared that his parents' death was the biggest Hichki moment of his life. In his words:

"My greatest ‘Hichki moment’ is the death of my parents. I was 15 when my father passed away and 26 when my mother passed away. It was very sad for us. The empty house without my parents used to come to bite us (my sister and me). The loneliness, pain and sadness of the loss of both my parents, could have been overwhelming enough to take over my life wholly. I decided to overcome this Hichki moment by letting acting fill up my entire life.”
