Time and again Bollywood stars have impressed us with their savage comebacks. We all know that a lot of times, reporters go an extra mile to churn out some juicy gossips from our favorite Bollywood stars. But, stars being stars clearly know how to answer these questions smartly.
While some of the savage answers by these stars left the interviewer looking for a Burnol, some just made us say ” What just happened!”
Recently Reddit dug out one of Shah Rukh Khan’s old interviews where he gave an amazing answer when asked about why he doesn’t pose on magazine covers with his co-stars. The answer just won our hearts. He said that he is aware that the magazines sensationalize these images and he doesn’t want that. He doesn’t want to be linked to his co-stars.
He said, ” I didn’t go to bed with them. I didn’t go to bed with Kajol. I respect my costars. Somehow girls don’t turn me on I’m not gay, but I’m not carried away by a beautiful face. If… just if… I really have an affair with anyone, nobody will find out, I’m too smart, too good an actor to let the world know what’s going on.”
While we all know that SRK is the king of savage answers, we have found some really cool answers by other stars too. Trust me, you will just fall in love with these stars again.
1. Deepika Padukone
What’s the biggest turn-off you ask, I will instantly say – It’s saying something sexist. But guess what? Deepika Padukone gave a savage reply to a reporter who asked her one such question during the Chhappak promotion.
Deepika is the producer of the film Chhappak and hence the reporter assumed that it is Ranveer Singh’s money too and said –” Yeh Toh Ghar Ke Paise Hai” Deepika was quick to answer. She said, ” Excuse me, yeh kisne bola, yeh mere khud ke paise hai”
2. Akshay Kumar
When it comes to being witty, no one can beat Akshay Kumar. It was during the houseful promotions that he was asked about the Kangana Ranaut- Hrithik Roshan controversy. The answer just made everyone crack up. He said “Bollywood mein kaha chal raha hai, Meri building mein chal raha hai” He continued and said that he wants this to resolve soon since media is enjoying this case.
3. Shah Rukh Khan
This man is literally savage when it comes to giving epic replies. Arnab Goswami had called out Shah Rukh Khan for saying – ‘ We are not businessmen, we are content creators.‘ Arnab said that SRK mentioned profits 3 times in five minutes. Shah Rukh was quick to answer and said, “Ghurbat mein creativity nahi hoti, main sabko bolta hu first get rich then become a philosopher”
4. Ranbir Kapoor
We respect you for this one Ranbir! The way he handled the question regarding Deepika Padukone’s RK tattoo just makes me fall in love with him all over again. A reporter just asked Deepika if she would get herself tattooed again for the promotion of the film. Ranbir came in her defence and answered, “I think this is an amazingly shameful question. Deepika didn’t get a tattoo for a ‘promotion’. It’s really silly. I don’t think any actor in the film fraternity does things for promoting and marketing of a film. We also have a personal life. We do things for a film, but when we go home, we have a life, parents, family, friends. So you should respect that.”
5. A R Rahman
Well, this was an absolute ‘burn’ moment. Salman Khan was heard saying “Rahman sabko pata hai bade hi average hain.” Though Rahman didn’t say anything then, he reverted with the perfect comeback when he was asked when will he work with Salman. He replied by saying, “He has to do movies which I like.”
6. Priyanka Chopra
She is a global star for a reason. She clearly knows what the media wants. She was asked if she and Shah Rukh Khan would make better co-hosts as far as romance and comedy on the stage is concerned. Priyanka simply replied by saying, “I can romance anybody… that is my job.”
The reporter didn’t stop and kept probing Priyanka. She shut him down with the perfect answer. She said, “You want me to take his name? You want me to answer and you want that there’s some drama, and I won’t let that happen. Keep asking, and I’ll keep laughing.”
7. AISHWARYA RAI BACHCHAN
Now this one is evergreen. In the year 2005, Aishwarya Rai was mockingly asked by David Letterman on Late Show– “Do you still stay with your parents, and is it normal in India?”
Aishwarya responded with the sassiest answer. She said, “It’s fine to live with your parents because it’s also common in India. We don’t have to take appointments from the parents to meet for dinner.”
