Mumbai: Even a star as big as Shah Rukh Khan can succumb to embarrassment. And this is the reason why King Khan chose to quit a social networking site. The actor, who was one of the most active celebrities on twitter, has off late refrained from tweeting, only to avoid answering weird questions.
Expressing his views on the kind of comments people post on his tweets, Khan , while talking to a daily said, , "As an actor and as a celebrity, I often come across people who look into my eye and ask me embarrassing questions at press conferences. However, I don`t have any option other than putting up a smiling face and replying to the questions even if I am upset or angry.”
Moreover, the star, who was candid enough to say that he does not know how to keep up relationships on Karan Johar’s talk show, believes he is not somebody who can handle embarrassment. So he chose to put an end to his tweets.
"It has been happening since 20 years and it happened even during my interactions on Twitter. But I am socially inept, I don`t know how to handle relationships and am not very good at dealing with such questions and therefore I thought it would be best to quit", added the superstar.
And to make matters worse for the star, people ended up accusing him of using the site only to promote his films. To which the actor said, "There were comments that `Oh he only comes on Twitter when he wants to promote his films`. Well with all due respect to everyone, I want to say that 8-10 lakh do not make a film hit."
Criticism comes as a part of stardom SRK, take it in your stride!
