Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan says his life has been shaped up by the women in his life.
“Starting from my grandmother to my daughter now and in between my wife, aunts, didis [older sisters] in colonies, my leading ladies and women directors with whom I have worked,” the 50-year-old actor told reporters in Mumbai at the launch of She Walks, She Leads a book by debutante author Gunjan Jain on Thursday.
The book is an anthology of 24 women achievers who are at the pinnacle of their profession. The anthology is likely to be the first of its kind in the global publishing industry to feature over 150+ leaders who have authorised their presence and is likely to be in Guinness for its achievements. The first copy of the book will be released 15 August 2016.
“They have helped me achieve 100 per cent of what I am today. I wouldn’t be half a man without these women. I owe my life to them,” the Dilwale actor said.
Khan had earlier announced that he was writing his autobiography.
“The amount of sensitivity I have, the goodness in me has been led by the women in my life, about whom I will one day perhaps write a book,” he said.
Khan also narrated a poem which he had written after being inspired by a comment he read of former One Direction band member Zayn Malik.
The poem celebrates a girl who has made mistakes, regrets, secrets and dreams — one who falls, but never gives up.
“The girls who take life as it comes, the girls who have broken the code. For the girls who hope that it will get better somewhere down the road, let your steps be a dance and jump into this world. You are beautiful, because you fight like a girl…” Khan recited. – CINEWS
