MUMBAI:  You can love him or hate him, but you definitely can’t ignore him. The man with a midas touch, Shah Rukh Khan needs no introduction. Just one year short of 50, the King of Bollywood celebrated his special day with his fans, charming everyone with his persona.

Humility personified, SRK was dressed in a black T-shirt and jeans addressing the media and the sea of people gathered outside his residence to wish him on his birthday.

“There is nothing else I can feel on my birthday except humility. I feel I do not deserve the love I get. I am just an actor and a small person and the kind of love I get, I feel blessed. What more can I ask for myself,” said the Baadshah of Bollywood.

“I wish everyone gets a life like Shah Rukh Khan,” added the superstar.

The actor also apologised for all the trouble to Mumbai police as well as his neighbours during days like these.

Reminiscing about earlier days, when he began his career, he reckoned, “Initially I used to celebrate my birthday with not more than eight or nine people, things have changed, my fans have increased, so has the media but I still feel, I have received more than I could ever ask for.”

About hitting half century next year, the actor said, "I don't count age and I feel good and energised. I will be shooting for Fan from tomorrow (Monday). Next year it's going to be more special as I will be turning 50.”

He also disclosed that more than losing his name or fame, he is scared to not live up to his fans’ expectations. “The audiences have a lot of expectations from me and I don't want to disappoint them and that's my biggest fear. I hope I work hard and live up to everyone's expectations."

Coming from the capital city, SRK is one of the very few actors who, despite of not having a godfather in the industry, made it big on his own. “I am proud of fact that I am outsider. This industry is harsh at times. It loves you at one time and also can show you the door at times. There are lots of people in the industry who are responsible for who I am today.”

He also added that he doesn’t consider his personal life worthy enough to make a biopic and if it is ever made he will not be the one to act in it. “There are a number of great personalities in the industry with better stories than mine. I don’t think I have reached the level yet where a movie should be made on my life. I still have a long way to go.”

The actor also revealed that he wants to start doing two films per year now; “I need to work with directors who want to push boundaries with me,” he added.

Also finally, wishing the new Maharashtra government success, he said that “instead of jumping the gun, we should give them time to achieve the target set by them; it is not about the opening weekend in this case, they should be given a chance and time to perform.”

Born on 2 November 1965, Shah Rukh Khan has acted in over 75 films ranging from romantic dramas to action thrillers. The actor has won the maximum number of Filmfare awards. He was also awarded the Padma Shri in 2005 and the prestigious Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the Government of France in 2007 for his contribution to the film industry. The actor is currently working on Fan and Raees
