Bollywood Gossip: Shahrukh Khan

Shahrukh Khan

The Baadshah of Bollywood, Shahrukh Khan (SRK) has set some rules for his films.

The first is that he won’t ride a horse and the second is he won’t kiss on screen.

But it seems SRK made an exception for Jab Tak Hai Jaan and he revealed why at a leadership summit in India.

“I had a few rules – I won’t ride a horse and I won’t kiss. Both are cumbersome. I don’t know how to do either on screen. Adi [Chopra], Yashji and Katrina, and I say this with all humility, they knew I was awkward and had issues. They said: ‘You don’t have to do this’ and then forced me and even paid me for it. So when [film] heroines say: ‘I wore a bikini because the story demanded me to do so’, well, I did it [the kiss] because the story demanded it.” –
