BENGALURU: With sensible humour and one-liners that reduced the gathering into fits of laughter, actor Shah Rukh Khan inaugurated the IIMBUE, IIMB’s leadership and global alumni meet, here on Friday.
In his address and subsequent interaction, he stressed the importance of creativity and hard work to achieve success.
The actor also briefed about the personal challenges he had to overcome and how stardom transformed his life.
The interaction with Shah Rukh saw the likes of MP Shashi Tharoor, former tennis player Vijay Amritraj, actor Kabir Bedi and Chief Secretary Kaushik Mukherjee posing questions.
To a question on social media posed by Tharoor, the actor described his relationship with it as an ‘affair’. “Initially one is very enthusiastic about it, but after sometime, it is different. However, once you start missing the persons’ company, you live with all the ‘rough edges’ of the partner,” he said.
Apart from the said personalities, participants too posed some questions. On who was his role model, he replied that Biocon chief Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw was his role model.
“I find her one of the most intriguing, exciting and hardworking women in the country,” he said.
He noted that the enthusiasm of youth, when channeled in the right direction is an essential aspect to ensure success. It is also important, he said, to check the limits of what one can achieve.
