Hyderabad, Oct 25 (IANS) A 50th birthday usually calls for a huge celebration, but superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who will touch the half century mark on November 2, says he has plans for a “quiet” special day with his family.
“I will have a quiet birthday. I will go back to Mumbai on November 1 to meet my children, because the next day I have to be in Goa for a shooting,” said the actor, who has been shooting the last leg of “Dilwale” here for a month.
“Dilwale” is being touted as SRK’s next big entertainer as it not just reunites him with actress Kajol on the big screen, but also with director Rohit Shetty, with whom he has churned out a blockbuster like “Chennai Express”.
Produced by SRK’s Red Chillies Entertainment, “Dilwale”, which also stars Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon, is releasing in December.
After turning 50, Shah Rukh hopes to do as many as three films in a year. Age is clearly not impacting either the fervour or the magic of the actor-producer, who has regaled Bollywood buffs for well over two decades.
With humble beginnings on the small screen, featuring in shows like “Fauji” and “Circus”, Shah Rukh is today one of the highest paid actors in India and has a global popularity very few actors in the nation enjoy.
Just earlier this month, he was awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Edinburgh.
