From portraying romantic shades, playing a dwarf to stepping into antagonist roles, the king of romance, Shah Rukh Khan has essayed varieties of characters onscreen but has never donned the director hats ever in his career. Shah Rukh recently in an interview opened about it and revealed the reasons for not venturing into direction.
Shah Rukh recently talking to DNA revealed how his younger son AbRam is one of the reasons for venturing into direction. In the interview, Shah Rukh said, “I’ve a little one right now. So, if I became a director, I would be locked in a room for two years, which is not a good thing to do at present. Sitting with AbRam and trying to write a story will be impossible. I don’t want to miss out on his growing up years.”
Further revealing another reason for not trying direction, Shah Rukh said, "I believe that if you are going to helm a film then you should be aware of the plot. You’ve to be able to say confidently ‘this is what my story is’. My thing is I’m assuming the possibilities. But sometimes, I haven’t tied up all the loose ends.’’
On the professional front, Shah Rukh was last seen in Aanand L Rai’s film Zero which also featured Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma in lead roles. Meanwhile, Shah Rukh will be next seen in the film Saare Jahaan Se Achcha.
