"If I don't get an award, that award is at loss": Shah Rukh Khan on not receiving National Award
Over three decades in the film industry later, Shah Rukh Khan in a recent interaction, shared his thoughts on not receiving a National Award for his work in Bollywood.
While the 53-year-old actor stated that receiving the National Award someday would be good, he clarifies the statement saying even though he is yet to receive one, he does not have regrets about his films. “To be honest, mujhe koi regret nahi hai. I am a very simple, down-to-earth person. Yes, vis-a-vis my achievements, I am extremely ambitious but in a fair manner. If I don't get an award, that award is at loss," he said.
"Kabhi kabhi award ki prestige bhi badh jaati hai agar mujhe mile toh. That was a joke but on a serious note, I feel I don't do films where there's enough space to get 'artistic'. Personally, though, I think I have tried to get a lot of art into commercial cinema," he went on to share.
When asked about not getting a National Award yet, SRK said he is fine without it but would surely not mind having a National Award or an Oscar as well. "I am fine, but having said that, why not have that also? Ek Oscar aur ek National Award aa jaaye toh accha lagega, sab complete ho jayega," he said
On the work front, SRK will be next seen in Farhan Akhtar’s Don 3.
