Privacy is alien to celebrities and their lives; everyone wants to have a piece of them by hook or by crook. The ever-so-hungry fans are always on a frantic chase for anything, and everything that the celebs do (or don't do) and this can irk the latter, for obvious reasons. It is then that they are spewed on and their image hogwash-ed, giving rise to unsolicited controversies and gossips.
B-town celebs and their controversies abound, thanks to the media houses and portals, but that's just a part of them. There are way many facts and secrets about our beloved Bollywood stars that not many are aware of. However, close aides and fans of some stars do not mind spilling the beans on some platforms, and we love them for the contribution. We thought of digging out some facts about the ace actor and ruler of Bollywood, Shahrukh Khan, to let our readers celebrate their admiration and love for their favourite actor.
Beneath the extra-ordinary personality of Shahrukh Khan, there is an ordinary man who has some hidden secrets and desires that are oblivious to many.
Enough has been shared about his affairs and witty tweets, it's now time to dig further into his life and uncover those secrets that only his close allies know. Tag along and know more about the lesser-known facts, oops secrets, of the renowned star.
SRK's elder sister, Shahnaz Lala Rukh Khan, lives in Mannat with the star family but hardly makes any public appearances.
His dad, who was adored by many, succumbed to oral cancer. It was an innocuous looking blister in the mouth that turned malignant and took his life.
If you ever happen to spot a high-end car in Mumbai with the number 555, then get your autograph book and cameras ready for there is a fat chance it belongs to King Khan. Most of his cars and even phone numbers are a combination of 5s and 8s, following his fervent belief in numerology.
Unlike his biggest competitor cum bestie Salman Khan, the badshah doesn't like undressing in the company of humans. So much so that his own swimming pool at Mannat awaits the feel of his skin.
Any guesses to what his favorite hangout is? You will be surprised and a little amused to know that SRK loves to spend a quality time in his lavish bathroom, sometimes a couple of hours at a stretch. Now what he does inside – besides singing - is still a secret! And did I tell you that he doesn't use soap?
King Khan doesn't dread challenges but there is something that he is just not able to conquer, and that is his addiction to smoking. Despite trying hard to give up the urge to smoke, he has failed miserably.
Though he doesn't remember who introduced him to smoking, he developed the addiction since his college days and hasn't been able to give it up since. He can smoke multiple cigs in one sitting and surprisingly, this obnoxious habit has a calming effect on him.
Classic King Regular is his favorite brand, if it interests anyone….
If you were fortunate enough to frisk him, you will end up disappointed for our very own Raj prefers to keep his pockets free. His pockets are devoid of any money, wallet, or even cigs.
It is no secret that words – full of wit and intelligence - come naturally to him. He can talk on anything and everything, given his mood and time (of course). What we love about him is the fact that he isn't superficial; it reflects in his conversations and speeches.
One of the most interesting secrets about SRK is his yearn for an Oscar and a recognition on an international level. He longs to hold a well-deserved Oscar in his hand one day and keeps his avenues open to Hollywood offers for the same, but it seems he will have to wait a little longer before his Hollywood dream turns a reality. Perhaps, he can seek some fruitful advice from Deepika and Priyanka…
If his irresistible charm wasn't giving enough heartaches to women already, the ace entertainer also wants to learn ten songs on a guitar that he can play to every woman on earth.
Like many other Bollywood celebs, SRK also does a lot of charitable work but unlike others, he prefers to do it silently and finds no reason to brag about something that is nothing but humane.
For example, in 2009, he adopted 5 villagers in Bhitarkanika National Park in Kedrapara, Orissa to provide them with electricity.
The idol of many, SRK has two idols – Caitlyn Jenner and Muhammad Ali.
The heartthrob of millions wants to learn Italian cooking and do it the mafia way, with apron and stuff. What a slayer!
Did we mention that he prefers the tag of Badshah because he likes to think of it as Bad Shah?!
That was the eccentrically interesting Shahrukh Khan for you…
