At the recent Hindustan Times Leadership Summit; Shahrukh Khan has been quoted saying; “I really appreciate the youngsters who make a decision to join politics because it is a very self-sacrificing job. I’m too selfish and too materialistic to be a politician. I can’t sacrifice my personal gains. I’m also too good-looking to be a politician.”
However even though he may not want to step into the shoes of a politician himself Khan truly understands the importance of politics and he too would like to make changes. “I would like see a more educated India because I feel there is no alternative to education. I would like to contribute to education of children.”
Khan also took the time to apologize on behalf of the entire Bollywood industry for portraying politicians as self centered in movies.
