If sources are to be believed, Shahrukh Khan, the one and only Baadshah of Bollywood is going to retire soon!
According to them, Shahrukh realises that an actor has a limited shelf life in Bollywood and that his limit has arrived. They say King Khan is planning for retirement in the next 3 years or so.
“… he will concentrate on production business. Shahrukh will not make a complete exit from acting but intends to star in at least one film per year, but this will be for his own banner and the role will be of a supporting actor.”
After retirement Khan plans to spend his time in Dubai, where he wants to recreate Mannat, his bungalow. In fact, he has already started looking for land in Dubai and has told his wife Gauri to make the plans and get the ideal design created so that it is identical to Mannat in Mumbai.
But are we ready to wish him good bye yet? Certainly a great actor will be missed, even if he decides to appear once in a while. The man has practically ruled the film industry for almost two decades, giving power packed performances in both conventional and unconventional movies like Maya Memsaab, Baazigar, Dilwale Dulhaniye Le Jayenge, Dil Toh Pagal Hai, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani, Veer Zara, Paheli, Chak De India and many more…
Maybe the love of his fans will bring him back, just like the Big B, packed with new energy to move the Indian Film Industry!
On a lighter note, one good thing about his retirement is that now, hopefully, legendary production houses will make an attempt to sign new heroes for their films that come closer to their heroine’s age!
