Shahrukh Khan gets candid about not having the USP to make a cut in Hollywood but also asserts that he only wants to be part of Bollywood and make films that entertain.
Many Bollywood actors are making their way into Hollywood as well as politics but superstar Shahrukh Khan says he is happy acting in Indian movies and doesn't consider himself fit to be a part of politics.
"First of all, I have not been offered any Hollywood movie. I know a lot of people working in the production of Hollywood films. There are a lot of studios here, so we keep meeting the studio heads also. But I don't feel I have the USP of being in Hollywood," Shah Rukh told reporters here Friday.
Shahrukh Khan, who has completed two decades in Hindi film industry, feels Hollywood has enough actors of his age and that he wants to dedicate his future to Bollywood only.
"I don't know kung fu. I'm not the greatest dancer. I'm not like a cool guy. I think they (Hollywood) have enough actors of my age. I desire to work in Indian films and be a part of Indian films in any which way I can. I dedicate my coming years to Indian cinema only," he said.
Asked if he plans to be a politician in future, Shah Rukh said: "I have been asked this question for the past many years. I know many politicians and have huge amount of respect for them. I talk a lot to them too, but politics is not my job profile."
"My job is to make films and entertain people through this medium. I just want that people, who are fed up of continuous ups and downs of the political world, breathe a sigh of relief and get entertained through my films," he added.
However, if he gets the chance to play a politician on-screen, Shah Rukh says he will love to play Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad.
