Shah Rukh Khan is currently enjoying his stay in China where he went a few days ago to attend the 9th Beijing International Film Festival. His last film, Zero has held a spot at the Film Festival where it will be screened for the Chinese audiences. Shah Rukh went there to promote his film and was welcomed by a flurry of over-enthusiastic fans who were ecstatic to see and greet him at the airport. In fact, a lot of videos too surfaced online showcasing the overwhelming welcome of the Baadshah of Bollywood to their country.
Shah Rukh Khan also tweeted a gratitude photo on Twitter thanking his fans for the lovely gifts and their love. He posted:
“What a warm and happy welcome here in China by SRK UNIVERSE China. Thx for the gifts, the flowers and the kisses. I am Red all over!!”
Shah Rukh Khan also held a live chat session for his fans where he answered most of the Frequently Asked Questions. Among the flood of questions, he was asked about his favorite film starring him. To which he replied with utmost innocence and said,
“I like them all, I like them that’s why I do them but to start with, Kabhi Haan Kabhi Na, Baazigar was very good, Darr was very nice, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Chak De! India, Devdas, Swades, Chennai Express (I found it very funny), Fan, and I also liked Raees a lot. I must have missed a few but all these films I really enjoyed doing.”
Here’s the video of the interaction:

Another question which has caught our attention is about his upcoming project which still stands to be unannounced. He told that he is currently listening to scripts and will decide by June this year. He was quoted as saying,
“At this point, I have not decided anything. I think I will take the decision for the next film that I am going to do by June. I am just listening to films and I want to spend some time just listening and working on them. So by June, I will be able to take a call on which film I want to do.”
Though Shah Rukh Khan has been taking up scripts with fresh plots and everything but his few previous movies have been critical as well as box office duds like Raees, Fan, Jab Harry Met Sejal and Zero among others which have been disappointing, both for him as an actor, as a performer and for his fans. Shah Rukh Khan was supposed to do a Rakesh Sharma biopic, Saare Jahaan Se Achha but King Khan has opted out of being in space again after Zero’s mission to Mars failed miserably. It was reported that the reason for this was known to be Don 3 going on floors but that also seems to be hanging in the balance. This tough phase at the movies has made him be very cautious of his next choice. And for the official announcement, we will have to wait till June.
