The 'Badshah of Bollywood' was at his wittiest when he shared his aspiration of becoming a porn star.

Nobody can beat Shah Rukh Khan when it comes to taking pot shots at himself. The badshah of Bollywood was at his wittiest when he shared his aspiration of becoming a porn 'star'.


The actor was in the capital to launch management guru Arindam Chaudhuri's book Discover The Diamond In You when he revealed his desire.


"I always wanted to be porn 'star'. I am going to work with all the positivity and clarity to be a porn 'star'," Khan said, much to the amusement of the packed audience.


And where did this inspiration come from? "I have always been a huge fan of Sylvester Stallone who was a porn star before becoming a Hollywood superstar," Khan said.


Khan, famous for his outrageously funny remarks, did tickle the funny bone of the audience, which was in for a laugh riot while listening to the actor. And it was the icing on the cake when the actor said, "I will take my flag and put it up in America after becoming the biggest porn 'star' of the world."


The whole joke started when Chaudhuri, while reading excerpts from his book, gave the example of Stallone's determination and his journey from a porn 'star' to becoming one of Hollywood's icons.


He also referred to how Akio Morita, founder of Sony Corporation, the Japanese electronics giant, started the company with the dream of having his country's flag flutter high in the United States.


"You see that is what happens with students like me who take all the wrong things from the best of the examples given to them," Khan jested.
