    I don’t think I am good enough to work internationally: Shah Rukh Khan

    Apart from being popular in India, Shah Rukh Khan has a huge fan following around the world as well. Yet, even though other Indian actors like Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan are making a mark in Hollywood, Shah Rukh has still not acted in an international film.

    “I don’t think I’m good enough,” says SRK, adding, “I have not looked elsewhere. I’m a patriotic person. I’ve always wanted to do something great for Indian cinema, but not as an actor; that is not greatness. I wanted to work something out, where Indian cinema would gain from what I’ve done, like VFX, etc.”

    The 50-year-old also says his shy nature could also be a reason why he has never explored opportunities beyond India. “I’m very shy. Even the people I work with on films have to be my friends. I get very awkward around new people,” says Shah Rukh, adding, “I get impressed by those [actors] who go out and speak in a different language, on a set in another country, and do well. That’s fantastic. But I get scared.”

    Having said that, SRK hasn’t ruled out the possibility of making a film that may have global appeal, even though it is made in Bollywood. “I feel that even at this stage of my career, I may become part of a film, which may be loved internationally, but is made in India. It would be something like a Life Is Beautiful (1997). I may not act in it, but I want to make a film like that,” he says.

    At the same time, the star applauds those who have managed to make a mark internationally. “I don’t want to belittle any actor who’s worked in the US. I think they are all fantastic. You expose a lot of your inner fears when you go to an alien land, and achieve something. Whether it is a big or a small role,” says Shah Rukh, adding that if he ever does an international film, he would make sure that he doesn’t let his fans down. “In a strange, self-important and self-obsessed way, I feel that I represent India. If I work in an international film, then it has to have some kind of importance, not only for me, but also for the country that has made me the star that I am,” he says.
    Tash, Dea and Alenka thank this.

    SRK plzzzz do international film in my honest opinion am not from India and we all seen international star like tom cruise or brad bitt they don't have the ability to act to make you laugh or cry they are like poker face they just do big movies.we need real people that awake emotion on you. I go a lot of hollywood movies but comparing to way of acting and getting stories going ahead I think SRK doing a better job than any hollywood star. World need to experience SRK acting then they will know what real acting means.
    Tash and Alenka thank this.

    I think there is a lot more behind him not doing an international movie and I love love the fact that his dream/goal is doing an internationally appreciated Indian movie. A real artist and it shows his passion for his profession
    KKhan and skrogers thank this.

    As always he is very humble, love that about him. I would rather he stays away from Hollywood too.
