Bollywood Superstar Shah Rukh Khan attended the press conference for the announcement of the 63rd Jio FilmFare Awards. The press conference was also attended by the Filmfare editor Jitesh Pillai along with the Worldwide Media Pvt Ltd CEO, Deepak Lamba. The prestigious awards ceremony will be held on January 20 next year in Mumbai and Shah Rukh Khan will be returning as the host of the awards ceremony.
While addressing the press conference, the ‘DDLJ’actor made a lot of witty and funny remarks with the press. Here are a few excerpts from the event.
Shah Rukh recalled his earlier days when he used to watch the show on Television in Delhi and it made him want to become someone who is showered with a lot of appreciation and love. Kan said, “When I was growing up in Delhi, I remember watching bits and pieces on television when I learnt a little about Filmfare. It was enticing and overwhelming when I first saw it on television. I didn’t know then if I wanted to be actor or not. I wasn’t too sure if I’d be an actor, but I had the desire that someday I’ll reach a position where I will earn as much love from the people.”
On his return as the host of the awards show, Shah Rukh said, “As the years have gone by my desire to be on the stage of Filmfare has not gone down. This is one award function I really enjoy because it starts with a technical award and it’s really nice to give respect to everyone. It’s a dignified stage to give award to the people who are behind the camera”
The acclaimed actor also jokingly said that he is the best host for the Awards show. When questioned as to who is the best host, Khan humourously said, “I think nobody is better than me and I host really well. I am impromptu and handsome. I can talk well in English and Hindi too. I think I should get the award for the Best Host.”
On his upcoming yet to be titled film with director Aanand L Rai co-starring actresses’ Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma, Shah Rukh said, “I have finished shooting for the film and the first poster will be released by the makers very soon. It is a very advanced film and has been made with the use of latest technology.
On the occasion of Salman Khan’s birthday and while conveying his special greetings to the Tiger Zinda Hai actor, Shah Rukh said, “Tum Jio Hazaao Saal…God Bless Him…”
