The Badshah of Bollywood sent out a tweet that he was retiring after seeing two young fans create an adorable home movie.
The news left many fans in disarray until they understood the Bollywood star was actually trying to make a joke.
In his tweet he is alluding to the fact the two young fans are so talented there is no need for him anymore on the Bollywood scene.
Although this social media event was merely a cheeky joke there is a real underlying story. Many fans and critics of SRK have said he an aging actor.
He himself may not be ready to throw in the towel but this decision may not be his to decide. If his popularity dwindles and the demand for his movies plunges it may force the bollywood icon into retirement early.
In a recent interview SRK had this to say about the matter
“I think work becomes a part of your life. I don’t think I would ever be able to retire from acting, unfortunately for a lot of people…” “Am I blindly believing that I can act for the rest of my life? No, with my eyes open I believe I can act for the rest of my life. Will I become the bad actor and be finished and done with it?… Maybe. But this thought has never come (of retirement),”
What do you think. Is SRK still as popular as ever? Or should he hang up his hat?
