Badshah of bollywood Shah Rukh Khan says the Hindi film industry may be driven by the star system, but now the audience wanted to choose ‘stars’ based on their performance.

Asked how important is the star system in Bollywood, Shah Rukh said here: “If in IPL (Indian Premier League), we don’t have stars, nobody will watch it. So, you have to have stars for people to choose films.

“(Cricketer Mahendra Singh) Dhoni is a star, but, if he doesn’t perform well for three times, everyone starts abusing him. So, performance is very important. I think star system is important, or else by this time, our films would have come to an end.”

The 50-year-old, whose next film is the big ticket “Dilwale”, says he feels lucky that at his age, he’s getting to play roles as romantic as the ones he essayed when he was in his 20s.

“Earlier at 40, a hero was not a hero anymore. So, Salman and I were talking the other day that god has been so kind to us that we are 50, and we are still doing the same thing as we did when we were 25.

“It’s a huge thing for us,” said the actor, who will be seen romancing Kajol in the Rohit Shetty directorial.

Releasing on December 18, the film also features Varun Dhawan, Kriti Sanon, Boman Irani and Johnny Lever among others.

Mumbai, May 25 (IANS) Actor Arjun Bijlani says he needs to be extra careful, after a person has tested positive for coronavirus in his building here.

The actor, who has been in quarantine with wife and son in the Green Acres building, said: “Somebody’s help on the first floor has been infected. It’s a family of doctors. I am on the sixth floor and I am completely quarantined anyways. I think they will seal the building or a few floors. It was earlier reported in the next building, but now since it’s in our building too. We need to be extra careful.”

Incidentally, Arjun lives in the same building compound where producer Boney Kapoor’s house help recently tested positive for coronavirus.

Quarantining with pets can be a little difficult for Arjun. “I have a dog at home and he obviously needs to go for a walk, so it’s going to be a big task now,” he said.

The actor has already stocked up on essentials but he admits that the next 14 days are going to be crucial. He accepts that the Covid situation has been mentally scary for everyone since the beginning, but now that it’s in his building he is more worried.

“I am more worried now because I have a five-year-old son at home. But I am going to stay positive and pray that it doesn’t affect my family,” Arjun added.

Although the actor has a help at home, he said that he and his wife have divided the household chores.

He said: “Cooking, cleaning, there are so many things to be done in the house. We have a help at home. But me and my wife have divided work on our own. But we have a dog, who needs to go for a walk, and my help is the one who takes him and he sometimes plays with my son too, so now I need to be extra careful.”

“And we will take extra precautions now like washing our hands more frequently,” he added.
