Shah Rukh Khan’s rise from a television actor to a Bollywood superstar has been quite phenomenal and inspirational. There is no doubt that he is a superb actor who knows how to express all the nuances of emotions on the screen. But in real life, the Badshah has battled with a lot of grief and pain which continues to be a part of his life even now.
Have You Ever Seen Shah Rukh’s Sister Shehnaz Lalaruk?
Yes, the sadness of Shah Rukh has got nothing to do with his recent flop movies. Apart from wife Gauri, two sons Aryan and AbRam and daughter Suhana, another person who is a permanent part of Shah Rukh’s family is his sister Shehnaz Lalaruk. Not many know about her because she prefers to stay away from the limelight and never attends parties or public events.
While throwing light on his sister, the “Zero” actor once said that his sister went into depression after his father Mohammed Khan died due to cancer. At that time the superstar was just 15 years old. Shah Rukh says, "She didn't cry, she didn't say anything, she just fell and hit her head on the ground. And two years, she didn't cry, she didn't speak; she just kept looking into space. It just changed her world, now she's better, but she has got some deficiencies."
Shehnaz Was On Deathbed During DDLJ Shooting
King Khan revealed that during the filming of his one of the most successful movies “Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge” Shehnaz was hospitalized and the doctors had said that she will not survive. The actor took his sister to Switzerland where he was shooting a song of the movie but she has never recovered completely from the shock because his mother also expired 10 years later.
Shenaz could not face the reality of losing her parents which is one reason Shah Rukh developed a sense of detachment, a sense of humor and false bravado that he displays in the public. According to the superstar, “People think it is flamboyant and Bollywood-like, to cover up the sadness affecting my life and me becoming like my sister."
