International heartthrob and Bollywood’s favourite romantic hero Shah Rukh Khan has said that all the women in his life are important and it is extremely satisfying to have an award for women.
“All the women in my life are important to me, starting with my mother, wife, daughter, sister and all the ladies who have worked with me… The list is big because I’ve been working for 30 years, so there are lots of them, some 20-30 of them, all of them are important,” Shah Rukh said at the Vogue Women of the Year Awards in Mumbai.
“I think women are important, so to have an award for them, I think it is extremely fulfilling and satisfying, not just for the women who get the award, but for the men who don’t win it… Bystanders like myself, who can come and applaud for them,” the mega star said Shah Rukh, who was given the Vogue Entertainer of the Decade Award.
Shah Rukh is set to make a comeback on television with Star Plus’ new show ‘TED Talks: Nayi Soch’. When asked about it, he said, “I have no idea when the show is starting… I have to check for the details.”
The star is busy shooting Aanand L Rai’s next movie, which is untitled, but will reunite Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma with Shah Rukh after ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’.
“Aanand L Rai’s film shooting is going on. Katrina Kaif has joined us and Anushka Sharma will join us in a day or two. Shooting is going on at various places… It is going well,” Shah Rukh said.
