Shahrukh Khan has in the past been dragged into controversies that involved political parties, but the superstar himself rules out ever joining politics.
The reason Shahrukh won’t join politics is not that he looks down upon politicians. But because he doesn’t think he’s qualified to become one.
“I can't become a politician all of a sudden. It's a professional field and you have to educate yourself for that,” Shahrukh Khan is quoted as saying by Bombay Times. The superstar’s assertion of his lack of political ambition came during his recent visit to Kerala.
King Khan added that the idea of becoming a politician is for him as outlandish as the idea of becoming an astronaut.
“I don't look down upon politics. Asking me whether I've thought of entering politics is as good as asking me if I've given a thought to becoming an astronaut,” Shahrukh Khan said.
