Get well soon Shah Rukh Khan

February 18, 2009

We all knew Shah Rukh Khan had surgery 24 hours ago and yet there he was before us — dressed in T-shirt and jeans, only the sling over his left arm revealing he was in hospital till this morning.

He looked tired, almost as if he would rather sleep it out in bed than face the media. But Khan answered every question with no sign of impatience.

If I were him, I wouldn’t like to talk to anyone, let alone face a hundred television cameras and photographers screaming, “Shah Rukh bhai, ek shot please!”


The actor said he was feeling fine, but admitted there was some pain. Khan would not be able to work for a month or two.


“I plan to spend the time developing some stories and scripts that we are looking at,” he said.

“Also, my kids have exams coming up, so maybe I will coach them.”


Why is he addressing the press a day after he’s had surgery, I wonder. Couldn’t this have waited?


Khan had his answer ready.

“I don’t like to see you guys running after cars like this and chasing us. You could get hurt doing your job,” the 43-year-old said as the press conference drew to a close.

“I don’t want to see you guys standing outside my house all day, that is why I called all of you home,” he said.


As he got up to go, Khan had one final request.

“If any of your colleagues have missed this press conference, please share the information with them.”


Now that’s the first time I have heard any star say that. Join us in wishing Shah Rukh Khan a speedy recovery.
