Shah Rukh Khan wants to do away with the tag of being a superstar


“Genuinely, story-telling has anchored communication between human beings. “The second change that there is going to happen is that there is going to be… there will be radical movement away from the content itself… Instead of waiting for loans there is going to be a lot more crowd funding,” he added. The greatest change of this century has been the evolutionary revolution that has taken over the human kind is the opening up communication, information on the digtised platform,” he added. So even I want to put myself into the future of cinema like I have been in the past 25 years.” The actor, 52, who has been in the Hindi film industry for over two decades, stressed that he really wants to be a legend. Cinema will be at will — whenever and where ever you want to watch. He added: “No megastar… as egoistic and self-centred like me will fade away into the past without trying to wedge his or her foot into the door to the future. So, I rummage through my personal library… I found a book on the history of humankind called ‘Sapiens’ and going through the book I found that the only reason homo sapiens have dominated the rest of the species is because of one thing — because we gossip,” added the superstar. A change even in the way we consume films. The actor said that the spreading of ideas is a way of storytelling. Shah Rukh says that the future of cinema will be changed through the advent of digitisation. “I really want to be a legend. But mainly the changes is going to be how we market cinema.. The access to cinema will be more easier. Shah Rukh was here on Saturday at the fourth edition of Global Business Summit to speak on “Bollywood’s Digital push: What it means for the stakeholders”. “It is going to be on your mobile…there will be no more appointment cinema. They will be interactive.”

Artificial intelligence, virtual reality and visual effects all these are so important that roles of actors and stars will diminish, stressed the actor. But right now I think we are witnessing the greatest change. “There will be a lot of changes on how we consume cinema and watch it. The modern art of storytelling is of course filmmaking, he said. From here on I am going to spend time in the world of cinema than the outside of it… I realised I should do away with the tag of being a superstar instead I should work towards tag of being a legend,” he said. Unfortunately, there are no articles or books on how to be a legend. He added, “Right now the movie that attracts us, it’s a momentary catch of emotions or expression but soon movies will itself become an experience. I do not think cinema theatres will close down,” he said. Whether you music, art or poetry all of these things are a form of story-telling,” he added. Shah Rukh says there will be a big change between the viewer and how an individual watches the film. Even entertainment is actually a derivative of story-telling. “I am 26 years old in the film industry which is half my lifetime really. Related News
