The king of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan has secured a special place in the hearts of millions of people with his charming personality.
Hardcore fans like us look forward to his insights. Turns out we now know everything there is to know about the superstar.
A question was placed on Quora, inquiring about the superstar’s private life. An alleged ex-employee at his home office anonymously answered it in the most incredible way.

1. Chivalry isn’t dead for this gentleman
“He’s a superstar of the highest order and this is the 21st century, but he would still always open the door for an average female employee like me and let me pass first,” she wrote.

2. He’s a down-to-earth person who always takes out time for his fans
“Every morning when he leaves in his car, he knows a few fans will be waiting outside the gates. But he never pulls up the blinds to hide from them. He makes sure to smile and wave back,” he wrote.
3. Ex-employee claims SRK has a department which deals with all charity work associated with the superstar
“This small department handles all his charitable work and makes sure there is no delay or problem while providing any goods or payments promised under SRK’s name.” The generous star also searches for people in need through Twitter mentions.
“They also frequently comb through his Twitter mentions to check for anyone reaching out for help. Also, this team doesn’t have a PR/MR manager and thus their activities are hardly ever revealed to the media.”

4. The anonymous claims SRK is a downright family person
“We weren’t allowed to cancel or shift family time on his schedule unless absolutely necessary and without asking him first.”
The star gives his children complete attention and love.
“Whenever his children were in India, a part of the day was dedicated to them and we weren’t allowed to contact him directly regarding work during that time.”
5. To our surprise, the Bollywood star is a foodie!
“We Delhiites are suckers for Sitaram Diwan Chand ke Chhole Bhature. I had once brought two packed plates of it for myself when I came back to Mumbai from Delhi. He heard me childishly bragging about it in the corridor and told me to inform him when I was having lunch.”
“He said he hadn’t had them in so long and was craving a bite… He actually came to the cafeteria during my lunch break, sat across the table and had all my Chole Bhature,” she wrote
6. And he’s adorably humble
“I once accidentally ran my pen over his jacket worth 11-freaking-lakhs. His assistant was ready to rip my throat open, but he said it’s OK. He gave me side hug from one arm, ruffled my hair, and asked me to be more careful in the future.”

7. King Khan is unapologetically sarcastic, just like Chandler Bing.
“Since he doesn’t have to worry about offending anyone when cameras aren’t around — he’s very, very funny… He has a very sarcastic and witty sense of humour. Like Chandler but with oodles of charm.”

8. He’s a cool person
“It isn’t even aggression as much as passion… Maybe that Delhi ka tora still lingers in him, and maybe his non-Delhi colleagues and media personnel misunderstand that.”

9. He’s very hardworking
“He is not in India for the most part of the year, much less Mumbai, but he was always awake and around no matter what time I reported for work. We changed our shifts to accompany him, but he was always there. Not to forget, he is always abreast with every major decision-making of his businesses,” she wrote.
10. He’s always late
“No matter what time he starts the day, he’s always exactly two hours late for everything. But in his defence, it’s not usually because he was resting in his van or woke up late. He is constantly working, hopping from one commitment to another. A 24-hour-long day isn’t enough for the amount of work he gets done in a day.”
11. The star is always up-to-date with current affairs and he loves to read.
“Not only is SRK well educated, he is always updated on the latest news. Every morning three sets of three different newspapers are kept ready for him in his study, office, and car. He is also constantly checking updates on his tab while traveling. He also frequently reads e-books and I often saw him reading biographies and poetry.”

12. He’s still close to friends he had prior to joining Bollywood
“A lot of his childhood friends are still like family to him, and either hold high positions in Red Chillies or SRK is an investor in their businesses.”
