Bollywood's Superstar, Shah Rukh Khan has been ruling the silver screen for over two decades, and he enjoys a humongous fan following. The talented actor gave some hit films, including Baazigar, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Dil To Pagal Hai, Veer Zara, Swades, Jab Tak Hain Jaan and many more. SRK makes people go crazy with his charming smile and down-to-earth personality, as he is the 'King of romance'.
Recently, we stumbled upon an old video of Shah Rukh Khan wherein he talked about his love for popularity. When the actor was asked if he would like to have his privacy back, he answered negatively. Mentioning that he has worked very hard to be recognised, SRK stated that he wants women and kids to tear his clothes off. Shah Rukh was heard saying:
"No, not at all. I said this, in one interview, in my documentary that all my life I have worked so that I can be recognised. I want thousands of people to scream my name out when I get off the airport. I want girls and little children to tear my clothes off. I have worked very hard for this. And then I find it very stupid when I see stars wear dark glasses to hide their faces. I think I want to be recognised. Given a chance, I'd give my left arm and right arm to be recognised and have no privacy. I want to be known. I want to be disturbed. I want to be troubled by as many people for as many years as possible."
However, it looks like Shah Rukh Khan's statement didn't go well with a section of netizens. They took to the post's comment section and called the actor out for his controversial remark about girls and kids tearing his clothes off. Reacting to the video, a user expressed shock and penned, "Girls and other kids to tear my clothes off.." Meanwhile, another one commented, "Does anyone else find SRK's so-called 'Witt' just him being narcissistic and cringe?"

Once, Shah Rukh and his wife, Gauri Khan avoided getting clicked and hid their faces under an umbrella, leaving the media stunned. On April 20, 2022, Shah Rukh and Gauri were spotted by the paps at a private airport in Mumbai. While the paps were excited to get a glimpse of the royal couple, to their surprise, Gauri and Shah Rukh avoided getting clicked. It so happened that as soon as Shah Rukh and Gauri got out of their car, their guards covered their faces with an umbrella. This unusual gesture of the power couple left the paps stunned.
Shah Rukh Khan's superstar status comes with its fair share of pros and cons, which affects the everyday life of his family. And one of the biggest disadvantages is the constant media attention that follows him wherever he goes. Talking along the same lines, in an interview with Femina, Shah Rukh Khan opened up about the challenges of living as a superstar. Revealing that his family's privacy gets snatched away, he said:
“I bring a lot of unwanted nuisance into my family’s life. They get trolled, their privacy is snatched away, and they can’t even expect me to do normal, simple things like go for a walk.”
