When a user asked on Quora, how Shah Rukh Khan is in real life, SRK’s ex-employee decided to enlighten us all with everything we had ever wanted to know about the superstar. She claims to have worked under his supervision for one year and chose to answer this question anonymously, since she is still a part of the industry.
In her long answer, she disclosed a lot of things about the superstar, which will definitely warm your heart.
Shah Rukh Khan is not just an on-screen superstar. Even when he is off the screen, he manages to charm his fans with his razor-sharp wit, gentleman behavior, his extremely down-to-earth nature and his never-ending love for his family.
1. “He’s a gentleman!”
SRK’s employee stated an example of how he would always hold the door open for every female employee, regardless of her hierarchical status at work.
Aww. Such a cutie!
2. “He never misses a chance to garner love from his fans.”
Unlike other stars, he never draws the blinds or has tinted windows in his car. He happily smiles and waves back at them.
Truly the Badshah of our hearts!
3. “He has a special department for charities.”
There’s a separate team looking after all of SRK’s charitable work. This team takes care of all the requirements that have to be catered to, under his name. We have never heard of this bunch of people because they don’t have a PR person representing them.
4. “He’s a dedicated family man.”
Apparently, SRK has a dedicated ‘family time’ during which he doesn’t like to be disturbed, unless it’s urgent. This rule gets stricter if his kids are visiting.
Avoid using your phone next time you’re chilling with family. Learn from SRK!
5. “He’s a total foodie.”
If there’s one thing that SRK is willing to give up on his diet regime for, it is Sita Ram Diwan Chand ke Chhole Bhature, from Purani Dilli. And this is exactly what he did, when he realized that Ms. Anonymous had got some of these for lunch one day.
Wow, lucky person!
6. “He’s very humble.”
“I once accidentally ran my pen over his jacket worth 11-freaking-lacs! His assistant was ready to rip my throat open, but he said it’s ok. He gave me side hug from one arm, ruffled my hair, & asked me to be more careful in the future.”
7. “He’s way wittier in real life.”
Since he doesn’t have to worry about offending anyone when cameras aren’t around. He’s very, very funny. He has a very sarcastic and witty sense of humour. Like Chandler but with oodles of charm.
8. “He’s a total Dilwaala.”
It’s his passion that is mistaken for aggression. Maybe that Delhi ka ‘chhora’ still lingers in him, and maybe his non-Delhi colleagues and media personnel misunderstand that.
9. “He’s a hard worker.”
Turns out, while his team has to change shifts to cope up with his work schedule, he’s always on his toes like a one-man army. From taking all the major business decisions to giving his employees a feedback every now and then, SRK is all work!
10. “He is well-informed & well-read.”
Just recently SRK was visiting universities with his son, in order to get him the best education possible. His lust for knowledge isn’t unknown. Apparently, the man gets 3 sets of 3 different newspapers, kept in his study, office and car. Apart from that he keeps himself updated with his tablet. Really, how do you find the time, SRK?
11. “He’s keeps his pre-stardom friends close.”
He knows how to keep a friendship alive. While many of his friends from back home hold high positions at Red Chillies, others have him as an investor/adviser in their respective businesses.
12. Last but not the least, “He’s always late.”
She says that he is exactly 2 hours late, every time he has to be somewhere. But, it’s not because he’s chilling or lazing around. He is always on his toes, juggling ten things at once, doing the kind of work that is impossible to do in 24 hours.
