I think I am a...

CLOSET SHAH RUKH KHAN fan!

Totally. I think I like him. I like his movies. Other than K3G and Veer Zara. The rest of mostly tolerable and his presence in a movie actually makes me want to watch it (like most of India does).

But. But, I don't think I will ever accept in the open like my friend RJ or SJ do. I wont go gaga for him in public. I am very diplomatic when people ask me. I tell them, that I do not hate him and do not mind him.

Which is why G reasoned with me two nights ago on our drive back home from Sams Club that he thinks I am a closet SRK fan. I am not aware that I like him.

Then I reasoned with him why I don't really feel bad about it (I would have cried myself to death if anyone had told me that I was a closet AB or AB Jr. fan).
  • I like the way he dances. You should try to imitate the steps he does in the song "mahi ve" from KHNH. The grace he has is so difficult to get to. I know this because six-eight of us tried to imitate him while we were rehearsing for a friend's engagement party and all of us sucked! I would like think that I did not, but...
  • He is self made...I really do not want to know how he got where he is now and his relationship to Mr. K. JO and so on...but he, like my other favorite Rajnikanth, came into the industry without having a star backing and are shining bright now.
  • He has stage presence. He is not immensely handsome but he is superbly charismatic.
  • He loves his wife.
  • A good businessman.
  • He is into chick-flicks and so am I.
  • He has a sense of humor.
I might have more to add, but you can help me too...

Boo girl!!!

There is now way on earth that I would ever do the second thing....

And if I ever do...then I am not sane anymore...

He is at most tolerable in Dostana...in all other movies he sux...also he is tolerable in Dostana because he plays his real life character in the movie...not that there is anything wrong with it! :P

Anu.....U wont believe this but i had a huge life size blow up of SRK in my room, when i was in Stella. My cuzins and Friends (especially guys) would tease me till i cried..After a few years, i donno what happend, but i took down the poster and kept him to myself:):)in my heart....I must admit, i really adore and admire SRK, but will never admit it publicly...i donno the reason...I just wont...:) :)...
One scene that stuck with me is from KKHH..His expression during the climax when he is deseprate for Kajol yet, can't really do much about it coz she is to be married to Sallu...He acts out his helplessness, really well...Oh sweet jeeeeesus...
Boy, am i glad u wrote this :) :)

He can act romantic scenes very well and I even forget that he is actually acting. I feel it is very natural. I felt he is a funny guy (especially from kbc). I think I can just go on. Yes, Im a SRK fan too.. I dont collect his pictures or keep him as my screensaver or anything... but i like him... but unfortunately, his recent films are not at all upto the mark :(...

and yes I dont like AB jr.
