Playing a villain in one of the greatest highs: Shah Rukh

Added by harini on Dec 20, 2011

Shah Rukh Khan is back to his bad ways with the movie ‘Don 2’. And according to Shah Rukh Khan nothing equals the high that playing a villain gives.

“I really enjoyed it. I will be really honest and I am not glorifying badness in real life and these are just films and stories, but as an actor it is one of the greatest highs to play a villain's role,” he said to a leading daily

“Farhan Akhtar as a director-actor and Priyanka as an actor would agree that it's a different kind of a high for an actor to play a villains role,” he added.

The actor, whose career took off after his negative roles in movies like ‘Baazigar’ and ‘Darr’, said that its essential to have one central character that can either be good or bad.

“I started with theatre and there was nothing like a hero for me. There was a protagonist, a central character. I have been a bad guy on stage, I have been a good guy on stage...," said SRK.

"I was thrilled that I got this opportunity and I did not think of the hero type roles. Now that I am getting a chance to play a negative role in 'Don' after so many years, there is no justification to it and being bad is also important to take the world forward,” he added.

‘Don 2’ stars Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Kunal Kapoor and Lara Dutta and directed by Farhan Akhtar.

The movie will release on December 23rd in both 2D and 3D formants.
