Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan gestures to his fans during an event.
Shah Rukh Khan claims he is not a superstar but a king!
The actor who is often referred to as Bollywood's "Badshah" was at his sarcastic best while interacting with fans on Twitter in an online session titled "#AskSrk" session on Monday.
A user tweeted to Shah Rukh Khan hinting that perhaps the superstar should retire now.
The tweet reads: "Decline is inevitable in a life cycle. When/how do u know its right time to change careers/call quits if u are a superstar?? #AskSrk"
To this, SRK replied: "Wouldn't know....try asking a superstar. I am just a King unfortunately."
The actor also revealed how he is using the lockdown period to spend quality time with his three kids.
Responding to a fan asking how he is spending the lockdown period, Shah Rukh replied: "Inspite of contributing to the population boom, having three kids to be with is a treat.
They r in all shapes and sizes, so the day goes by being with them each for a couple of hours.
Then spend rest of the day cleaning up their toys!"
SRK also shared the lesson this ongoing pandemic has taught him. Replying to a fan, he tweeted: "That we all need to slow down a bit. Look and feel life and nature a bit more than just seeking instant gratification 24/7."
He also uttered words of prayer for the world to tide over the pandemic soon. "Hope we overcome the virus...faster than the number of movies I have done. Inshaa Allah"
Shah Rukh concluded Monday's session with a message for his fans on how to battle the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Thank you all for #AskSrk Need to get back to doing nothing. Please stay at home. Physical distancing. Hygiene.
And respect all who r doing amazing work on ground. Just Love a lot more and do nothing...because 'Jo kuch nahi karte woh kamaal karte hain," he wrote.
Two contradictory hashtags have been trending on Twitter all Monday. The first, #BoycottKhans, demands the Khans be shunned from Bollywood, in response to the untimely demise of Sushant Singh Rajput who, netizens feel was a victim of nepotism and power play.
"Betaal", Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan's new web series as producer, is set for a May 24 release.
SRK has come out with a video to create awareness around COVID-19 and also urged fans to stay indoors and follow precautionary measures.
