SRK says no more dancing . He was talking about movies with Bradd Pitt the king of Hollywood.But when the conversation turned to their own movies, and their process as actors, both seemed tired.
“I take a two-hour-long bath the Friday my movie releases,” said Shah Rukh, “and by Monday, I’m through with it. I don’t want to be a part of it any more.”
Shah Rukh, picking his words carefully, almost hesitantly said, “As you know, in commercial films, the singing and dancing is part of no storytelling, you just have to do it because you have to do it.”
“Maybe I’m going to be speaking against a lot of people, but you can’t really get into a character if you have to sing and dance every 20 minutes in a film. It’s not a musical, it’s not laid out like that.
Somewhere down the line, it’s just song and dance. I don’t know, I’m sorry to say, how to dance in character. It becomes difficult when I’m playing a more realistic role, like My Name is Khan.”
When he was asked about the future of Indian cinema, and whether he feels Hollywood poses a threat (things are changing of course, it’s not everyday stars like Brad Pitt come to India to promote their movies), Shah Rukh seemed concerned.
