Shah Rukh Khan, we know, is one of the biggest film stars in India. He started his career from the small screen and made it big. He is from a lower middle-class family in Delhi, and again, he has repeated that Delhi can never go out of him.
In an interview, he revealed that he was arrested in the initial days of his film career and had to spend a few hours in prison.
Also, once Shah Rukh was very unhappy with a magazine editor for allegedly spreading lies about him in one of his written articles.
Shah Rukh said that he got disturbed after reading the article.
“I was new (in the film industry), so I used to react to every news item whatever appeared. And thankfully, there was no social media back then. Just the magazines and stuff. I got very angry and I called up the editor and I said, ‘You wrote this’. He said, ‘But listen can you just take it... it's just a joke’. So I said, ‘I don’t find it funny’. So I went down to the office and I misbehaved a lot and...,” Shah Rukh recalled.
He also recalled yelling a lot and intimidating to hit people, during an episode of My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman on Netflix.
“I was shooting a film and the cops came. They sat down very sweetly and said, ‘we have a few questions to ask you’. I said, ‘do you want me to pack and we can chat in my car?’ Because I always assume anyone who meets me is a fan (laughs). They said, ‘no, we want you to come in our car!’,” said Shah Rukh.
Police took him to the lockup and when he saw the small prison cell, he pleaded with the cops to let him go.
“It was a small little prison. With all, you know, human faeces and ugh... it was really bad,” he added.
After getting out on bail, he even called the editor and said, “Now I'm in jail, and I’m not scared. Now you be very scared.”
