Shah Rukh Khan's story of becoming King Khan that he is today is nothing short of a dream, and it is one thing that the actor has always admitted to as well. What started as working in TV serials lead him to make it big in Bollywood with Deewana, and thereafter, there has been no looking back for him. He soon became the King of romance, and of Bollywood, and well, even after all these years, and films like Main Hoon Na, Om Shanti Om, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, and so many others, he still is the Badshah.

At a recent event, Shah Rukh went on to reveal how he knows such things happen in dreams, and his is one that has come true. He said, "I don't want to show off but I am genuinely a dream come true. I am a lower-middle-class boy, an orphan, who got into the city of glamour, became a movie star and the world showered me with love. This only happens in dreams. I never thought of it. I still have a hard time believing it. I never think of myself as a star, sometimes I have to behave like a star, which is not interesting. But I love my job."

In fact, the actor went on to say how he realized back then how ugly he is. He said, "When I saw myself for the first time on screen, this was for the rushes. Rushes are dailies. You shoot the scenes and you see the negatives. That was the time when we had negatives. So, I was looking at 'Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman' rushes in RK Studio. And I realized I am so ugly.

He added, "My hair was so bad! I was doing pathetic acting in front of actors such as Nana Patekar, Amrita Singh, and Juhi Chawla. Around 4ish, there used to be a flight of Air India that offered a 25 percent discount. I used to get those tickets back in the days. In fact, producers too would book tickets that had discounts. I bought one and went to the airport realizing that I cannot be an actor. However, Juhi and Aziz (director Aziz Mirza) convinced me saying 'Final would be better'. However, they lied. I never looked better. I kept looking bad. But I feel extremely fortunate as people have loved me so much. I remember initially one of the big things for me was that 'Main Dilli wala hoon aur Dilwala hoon.' Everybody here (in Delhi) treats me like their own. I have always said I can never feel like a star here. I only come for love here."
