The Indian film industry shares a great and unique relationship with government politics over the years. Even as several celebrities have turned to this field, Bollywood king Shah Rukh Khan feels that it is not really his cup of tea.
Shah Rukh, unlike other stars who fall temptation to taking up the unyielding force of political power, believes that politics should be best left to professionals to handle.
During his recent visit in Kerala, the "Chennai Express" star said he can't turn to politics all of a sudden adding that his true calling is acting.
"I can't become a politician all of a sudden. It's a professional field and you have to educate yourself for that," he told Bombay Times.
The 47-year-old actor might not want to make his foray into politics, but that doesn't mean he dislikes the profession.
"I don't I look down on 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," he said.
"Acting is what I've done all my life. I think I should try and do what I do best, which is also questionable at times. Honestly, I've no inclination towards politics."
Bollywood biggies like Amitabh Bachchan, Shabana Azmi, Dharmendra, Vinod Khann, Raj Babbar, Jayaprada, Rekha, Jaya Bachchan, Hema Malini, Shatrugan Sinha, Govinda and many more have entered politics as MPs and MLAs. But only a few of them have emerged as successful politicians and made noticeable changes.
