He advised Shah Rukh to always be humble, not to react, even if someone punches you.
Taking forward the conversation with Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh said that now that you have become a big star, the first thing is to fold your hands and apologise.
King Khan said that at that time I was young, I addressed Amitji and inquired if there was no mistake on my part. On this, the legendary actor said, ‘That’s what I’m saying, apologize, wherever you go, bow down and talk.’
Amitabh Bachchan asked me that if someone misbehaves with you, punches you, you will punch him back, then do you know what will happen?
I said what will happen? On this he said that ‘it will be said that you were drunk, money has gone to your head, you are a corrupt and illegal type of person’.
Shah Rukh Khan said that when I understood the conversation, I was afraid of becoming a star, if all this really happens to me, what will I be able to do? Can’t do anything? And then I sat in silence.
