90’s kids have grown up watching ‘king Khan’ spreading his magic on the television screens. The ‘king of romance’ used to mesmerize the audiences with his effortless performance. His popular characters ‘Raj’ and ‘Rahul’ became a dream man for every girl. Even the men replicated his style. But the characters that were once loved so much that people used to name their kids after them, doesn’t fit well in today’s world. In fact, Shah Rukh himself doesn’t want his daughter to stay around any boy who behaves like ‘Raj’ and ‘Rahul’.
In an interview with Filmfare, SRK revealed how the popular characters he has played are only for entertainment but in real life, women should stay away from them.
“What is the essence of romance? To make somebody feel it at a particular moment in time. Personally, I’m not like that. If I stood with my arms open and sang a song in front of my wife, probably she’d throw me out of the house.”

He further adds:
“I told my daughter, that if a guy meets you and says, ‘Rahul, Naam Toh Suna Hoga’, he’s a stalker. If a boy looks at you across a room at a party and says, ‘Aur Paas, Aur Paas’, go kick him in the shins. But in the film, if I’m able to activate an element of innocence and make it attractive, the role gets reinvented by itself.”
Clearly, the father in SRK understands that however convincing a character looks on the big screen, not all are to be adapted in real life.
This is why they say there is a huge difference between reel and real life. That is some great advice for every fan!
