 Shah Rukh Khan quoted saying, “Awards are odd because to me an art form is judged for its quality feels counter-intuitive. Art is an expression and cinema is the ability to create emotions and share experiences through stories. To be an actor, is to live to know that each one is a mere illusion. When you are making a movie you can change a lot by changing the angle of the light and it strikes you that life is a lot like that as well. It’s the simple things that can alter your journey and pondering makes your story worth telling. It’s not the awards you get, it’s just the part of creating a process that is an exhilarating experience for an artist.” (Image: Special Arrangement)

 Karan spoke on two decades of his debut movie, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, “Karan said I am here today only because of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. I can’t believe I actually became a filmmaker. My parents thought I am too emotionally fragile for the movie business. Two men who had faith in me more than I had on myself are Aditya Chopra and Shah Rukh Khan. Adi said I am melodramatic and thus I should be a filmmaker. SRK is bhai for me because over the years the friendship went into family and at some point, it transformed into sibling love. I don’t have siblings of my own but he is the older brother I never had, looking out for me at every step. During DDLJ shoot, he promised me that if I became a filmmaker he will work with me. He kept his word and in October 1997, I started the schedule of the film”. (Image: Special Arrangement)

 Shah Rukh Khan, the guest of honour at the festival was received with great love by the audience. In his trademark charm, he quipped, “Many years ago in 2006-07, I came here when I was a rising superstar giving hit films after hit films. And now I am back here again, still, a rising superstar not making as many hit films(chuckles), as much as I would want to do so. I thank everyone for the opportunity to speak here. It’s heartening that because of the Indian diaspora - the second generation of Indians here (people like Mitu) Indian cinema is getting noticed. It’s extremely gratifying and makes every Indian proud. I speak for everyone on the Dias today, that we are happy to be here.” (Image: Special Arrangement)

 Witty and sharp as always Khan’s energy was matched by long-time collaborator and dear friend KJo. Karan said, “it’s not the films but the people behind the festival who make it what it is. When I see this fantastic panel and we say the theme is courage, I say the panel is reflective of the glorious courage of our films and changing the face of Indian cinema. It represents three feature films that have changed the way we look at Indian cinema and how it has travelled across the globe and will continue to do so. There is Super Deluxe, Andhadhun and Gully Boy. All of these have appealed not only to the diaspora but to international audiences across the globe, making Indian cinema so proud. And what to say about Shah Rukh Khan, he fully represents superstardom. I firmly believe, in the era, we belonged to, the term is understood because of him. It’s not just about his large heart but his tremendous presence and aura. The fact that he is an outstanding actor is the hugest icing on the cake.” (Image: Special Arrangement)
