Enlightening up about the loss of his parents, Shahrukh Khan has revealed to Rani Mukerji in an interview that the death of his parents could have taken over his life wholly but he decided to overcome the sad moment by letting acting incite in his life. The Bollywood actress Rani Mukerji is promoting her upcoming film Hichki by asking celebs to share the hiccups they confronted in life.
“My greatest ‘Hichki moment’ is the death of my parents. I was 15 when my father passed away and 26 when my mother passed away. It was very sad for us. The empty house without my parents used to come to bite us (my sister and me). The loneliness, pain, and sadness of the loss of both my parents, could have been overwhelming enough to take over my life wholly. I decided to overcome this Hichki moment by letting acting fill up my entire life,” the 52-year-old superstar said in the interview. Khan added that “My parents went away suddenly. We got to know they had cancer and within two and a half months, they were gone. I didn’t know what to do. I just felt one night, while at their mazaar that I should fill this void with something. I got a fortunate break in films. For me, acting is not work but a place to vent out my feelings”.
Commenting on his life ahead, Khan said, “I always say this that one morning, when I wake up, I will realize that I have spent all these emotions and now have nothing more to give (as an actor). Otherwise, death is a hiccup from which there is no coming back. I realised that and therefore, overcame it by giving my work, my all. The God who gives us life and the problems and roadblocks, also makes us find ways to overcome those.” Hichki, Rani’s upcoming film in which she will be see playing the character of Naina Mathur who has Tourette Syndrome (a disorder which forces an individual to make involuntary repetitive movements or sounds). The film emphasizes on turning disadvantages into opportunities and working down as challenges that life throws at once and finally winning over them. The movie is all set to release on March 23, which is produced by Maneesh Sharma under the Yash Raj Films banner.
