An ex-employee spills the beans...

Most Popular

Someone asked on Quora what Shah Rukh Khan is like off-screen and an ex-employee who worked at his home office answered the interesting question.

The response has garnered more than 15,500 upvotes.

Here are all the juicy deets revealed by the ex-worker:

"I worked at SRK's home office for a year. I'll be going anonymous because I'm still working in the same industry."

1. He's a gentleman.

"He's a superstar of the highest order & this is the 21st Century, but he would still always open the door for an average female employee like me & let me pass first."

2. He never misses a chance to garner love from 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 away from them. He makes sure to smile & wave back. It's a stark contrast from other stars who hide away behind blackened car windows & maintain discretion to avoid fans outside their homes."

3. He has a special department for charities.

"This small department handles all his charitable work & make sure there is no delay/problem while providing any goods/payments promised under SRK's name. 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 & thus their activities are hardly ever revealed to the media."

4. He's a dedicated family man.

"We weren't allowed to cancel or shift his 'family time' on his schedule unless absolutely necessary & without asking him first. Whenever his children were in India, a part of the day was dedicated to them & we weren't allowed to contact him directly regarding work during that time."

5. He's a total foodie.

"We Delh-ites are suckers for Sita Ram Diwan Chand ke Chhole Bhature. I had once brought 2 packed plates of it for myself when I came back to Mumbai from Delhi. He heard me childishly bragging about it in the corridor & told me to inform him when I was having lunch. He said he hasn't had them in so long & was craving for a bite. I thought he was joking because he frequently made these Delhi-reference jokes with me as I was his only home-office employee from Delhi. But he wasn't joking! He actually came to the cafeteria during my lunch break, sat across the table & had all my Chole Bhature! LOL. "

6. He's very humble.

"I once accidentally ran my pen over his jacket worth 11-freaking-lacs! His assistant was ready to rip my throat open, but he said it's okay. He gave me side hug from one arm, ruffled my hair, & asked me to be more careful in the future.He's way wittier in real life. Since he doesn't have to worry about offending anyone when cameras aren't around, he's very very funny. And he has a very sarcastic & witty sense of humor. Like Chandler but with oodles of charm.

7. He's a hard worker.

"He is not in India for the most part of the year, much less Mumbai, but he was always awake & around no matter what time I reported for work. IDK if he ever even sleeps or not. We changed our shifts to accompany him, but he was always there. Not to forget, he is always abreast in every major decision making of his businesses."

8. He is well-informed & well-read.

"Not only is SRK well educated, he is always updated on the latest news. Every morning 3 sets of 3 different newspapers are kept ready for him in his study, office, & car. He is also constantly checking updates on his tab while traveling etc. He also is a frequent reader of e-books, & I often saw him reading biographies & poetry."

9. He's keeps his pre-stardom friends close.

"A lot of his childhood friends are still like family to him, & either hold high positions in Red Chillies or SRK is an investor in their businesses."

10. He's always late.

"I know that's public knowledge. No matter what time he starts the day, he's always exactly 2 hours late for everything. But in his defense, 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."
