As Shah Rukh Khan completed 27 years in Bollywood, the actor thanked his fans for giving him some space in their hearts.
The 53-year-old actor made his feature film debut in 1992’s romantic drama Deewana, which also starred Rishi Kapoor and Divya Bharti.
“I want to say a big thank you for 27 years in Indian cinema, which is exactly half my life time on Earth. I’ve ave been trying to entertain you for over 20 years, and sometimes I have succeeded, and many times I have failed.
“So I want to thank you for bearing with me for so many years since I came on a motorcycle in a film called Deewana singing Koi na koi chahiye and rode right into your hearts. And you not only allowed me right into your hearts, but also allowed me to stay there for so many years. Thank you very much,” Shah Rukh said in a video shared on his Twitter account as he recreated the hit song from the film.
The actor also used the opportunity to send across a message on traffic safety.
“It’s a coincidence that my friends from a motorcycle company have sent me two motorcycles to try out the stunts I did in Deewana 27 years ago. I am going to give it a shot, but this time there’s a difference. I will make sure I am wearing a helmet. Always wear a helmet while riding a bike,” he said.
Shah Rukh, who has not been having a good run at the movies for a while now, is currently taking time off acting.
His latest cinematic outing was Aanand L Rai-directed Zero.
