Rani Mukerji, who is currently busy in the promotion of her upcoming film Hichki, which talks about overcoming the obstacles in one’s life has been asking prominent personalities to share their untold weaknesses with the public and explain how they transformed them into their strengths.
Recently, when the actress asked the same question to her good friend Shah Rukh Khan, he reveals that “My greatest hichki moment is the death of my parents. I was 15 when my father died and 26 when my mother passed away. We were not financially well off, and I was pursuing my Masters degree then. 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 moment by letting acting fill up my entire life.”
“I never let go of the pain, but I used it to focus completely on acting. People close to me will tell you that acting is my window of manifesting these overwhelming emotions. I always say this — 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. God might bring a hiccup to you in this life, but He will also give you multiple ways to deal with it. I could find my family (the love and sense of belonging) among my friends and colleagues in the film industry again.” he added.
