Shahrukh Khan’s inspiring speech plagiarized from J.K. Rowling's?

Shahrukh Khan’s inspiring speech plagiarized from J.K. Rowling's?
Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan has the gift of the gab that not many in the film industry can match. When it comes to giving speeches, the actor can be pretty good in evoking inspiring sentiments with his words. But now, a big question mark as arisen over the originality of those words.

The 47-year-old recently gave a moving speech at AIMA (All India management Association) gathering (check out the photos) in which he talked about failures, poverty, struggle and success. The words he spoke were hefty and inspiring, but it has now come to light a part of the speech may have been plagiarized from the Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling’s 2008 Harvard speech titled “The Fringe Benefits of Failure and the Importance of Imagination”.

Here are some similarities:

Shahrukh Khan: “Poverty is not an ennobling experience at all. Poverty entails fear and stress and sometimes depression. I had seen my parents go through it many times. It means a thousand petty humiliations and hardships.”

J.K. Rowling: “I quite agree with them that it (poverty) is not an ennobling experience. Poverty entails fear, and stress, and sometimes depression. It means a thousand petty humiliations and hardships.”

Another similarity in the two speeches:

Shahrukh Khan: “Won't bore you with more details of how failure is a good thing because you won't call me back again for a talk on success etc next time but would like to tell you all that life is a not just a check-list of acquisitions, attainments and fulfillment. Your qualifications and CV don't really matter. Jobs don't matter. Instead life is difficult and complicated and beyond anyone's control and the humility, respecting your failures will help you survive its vicissitudes.”

J.K.Rowling: “I would tell my 21-year-old self that personal happiness lies in knowing that life is not a check-list of acquisition or achievement. Your qualifications, your CV, are not your life, though you will meet many people of my age and older who confuse the two. Life is difficult, and complicated, and beyond anyone's total control, and the humility to know that will enable you to survive its vicissitudes.”

Check out the videos of both the speeches below:
