Global laurels help introduce Indian cinema where needed: SRK

Kolkata: Superstar Shah Rukh Khan has no plans to foray into international cinema but appreciates actress Priyanka Chopra winning the People’s Choice Awards as he believes such achievements help introduce Indian cinema “in places where it needs to be introduced”.

The former Miss World won the Favourite Actress in a New TV series honour at the People’s Choice Awards in Los Angeles for American TV show “Quantico”.

“What happens with these achievements is Indian cinema is introduced in places where it needs to be introduced.

“It opens gates for more actors and actresses to look at,” Shah Rukh told the media at the launch of Kansai Nerolac’s coffee table book “Shades of Bengal”.

Shah Rukh batted for promotion of Indian cinema in different territories not only as a business opportunity but also as a means to spread the country’s culture.

However, he reiterated his decision on sticking to Hindi films at the moment.

“I am very happy making the films that I do. I have made it clear many times earlier, I don’t think I will foray into it (international cinema),” he added.
