The King of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan is yet to announce his next project after starring in the movie ‘Zero’. ‘Zero’ released to high expectations but failed to impress the critics and was a debacle at the box-office. His previous few films, including the last two releases ‘Dilwale’ and ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’, were not well-received by the audiences.
"I just finished the last film I made and to put it lightly, it was a disaster. I said to myself that let me enjoy a little bit of un-success as I had success for so long. So I have taken some time off for next four or five months,” said Shah Rukh Khan talking on the sidelines of the 10th edition of Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM), where he is the chief guest.
“As a matter of fact, I’m on these breaks... Coming here (Melbourne) and meeting people, realising and discovering new stories, doing intellectual speaking,” the actor added.
The ‘Swades’ actor said that good stories drive him and he believes he still has a few good stories up his sleeve.
“What drives me to do a film is the people around me who make such a great cinema... And I think I have a huge amount of capacity to do some really good cinema. I have 20-25 years of good cinema left in me,” Shah Rukh said.
Shah Rukh officially opened IFFM on August 9 with the screening of Rima Das-directed movie Bulbul Can Sing, which on Friday won the National Award for Best Assamese Film.
The 10-day-long IFFM will screen over 60 films in Hindi and regional languages including Assamese, Tamil and Bengali. Other celebrities attending the festival include Das, Karan Johar, Malaika Arora, Arjun Kapoor, Vijay Sethupathi, Zoya Akhtar, Tabu, Onir and Sriram Raghavan, Thiagarajan Kumararaja and Vijay Krishna Acharya.
