As the part of promotion of upcoming film ‘Hichki’ lead by Rani Mukerji asking celebs to share the hiccups they faced in life. SRK revealed that he faced the greatest loss in his life when his parents passed away.
The actor said “My greatest ‘Hichki moment’ is the death of my parents. I was 15 when my father passed away and 26 when my mother passed away. It was very sad for us. The empty house without my parents used to come to bite us (my sister and me). The loneliness, pain and sadness of the loss of both my parents, could have been overwhelming enough to take over my life wholly. I decided to overcome this Hichki moment by letting acting fill up my entire life. My parents went away suddenly. We got to know they had cancer and within two and a half months, they were gone. I didn’t know what to do. I just felt one night, while at their mazaar that I should fill this void with something. I got a fortunate break in films. For me, acting is not work but a place to vent out my feelings.
Finally he added, “I always say this that one morning, when I wake up, I will realise that I have spent all these emotions and now have nothing more to give (as an actor). Otherwise, death is a hiccup from which there is no coming back. I realised that and therefore, overcame it by giving my work, my all. And the God who gives us life and the problems and roadblocks, also makes us find ways to overcome those.”
Rani plays Naina Mathur, who has a nervous system disorder and she faces discrimination from society that firmly believes she cannot be a teacher because of her disorder.
Produced by Maneesh Sharma under the Yash Raj Films banner, the movie is set to release on March 23
