Popular anchor and actor Shardul Pandit is King Khan’s Jabra fan. On the eve of Shah Rukh Khan’s birthday Shardul shares his feelings for him.
“During my growing years I always admired and looked up to him whether it was his oratory skills or the intelligence or the charm he personifies. I have met him couple of times. My first meeting was years back when I have first moved to Mumbai for a radio station, I was called to Filmcity for interviewing him on the sets of Om Shanti Om. He had been shooting all day and was dead tired but when I reached he was like am just leaving do you have a car? Then come and sit in my car, I traveled with him from film city to Bandra where after the interview he just asked me what do you want to do? I told him that I want to be an actor and he gave me tips and advises. I love him as he just knows how to win people over, give respect and charm everyone.”
What is so special about Shah Rukh?
“His passion and his conduct with people. The way he respects and treats women and the fact that no one can talk the way he does. He is quirky and always full of energy.”
Which film of him you like the most and why?
“Kabhi Haan Kabhi Na, Chak De, Ashoka, when you see these movies you know he can be so different, he is also someone who broke rules,he was the first guy to play negative, a loser and do mad comedies in films like One Two Ka Four.”
