Bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khan took to Twitter in the early hours of Monday morning to show his philosophical side, once again. Taking to Twitter, Shah Rukh wrote that he was perfectly fine with the idea of dying of excess as long as he did not ‘succumb to accident’ with mediocrity.
His tweet, dubbed by his fans as incredibly deep, read, “I am ok to die of excess…I welcome starving because of want….just don’t let me succumb to an accident with mediocrity!”

Many of his fans were left visibly perplexed by the depth of his social media post. One fan wrote, “Damn!! DEEP!!” Another fan wrote, “Hope all is well, Shah. Don’t know the reasons that made you tweet like this, angel. But you know …we all know that the word ‘mediocrity’ & your name can never go together in the same sentence. You’re unique & wonderful just being YOU …the one we all adore. Love you lots.” Another concerned fan commented, “You’re anything but mediocrity. You are nothing but the best and the most beautiful and deserving of all things best. I love you so much.”
Shah Rukh was recently in news for his Twitter exchange with the character Bauua Singh from film Zero.
On Thursday, Shah Rukh Khan’s character in Zero, Bauua Singh, made a Twitter debut and amassed nearly a quarter million followers on the microblogging site. Soon after making its Twitter debut, Bauua Singh Singh began to post quirky tweets.
For example, one of its tweets read, “Main jo hoon, main Bauua Singh hoon janaab…iss baat ka aap behad lihaaz kijiyega, aur jo nahin karenge…unse mohabbat kar kar ke main unhein maar daaloonga. Taiyaar ho jao Twitter waalon! Aa gaye hain Bauua Singh!”
Another tweet read, “Suno!!! Hum bore ho rahe hain! Shaadi bhi nahi hui, warna biwi ke saath ludo khel lete!! Pls koi film bataao time kill karne ko!”
Then the Twitter handle of Bauua Singh decided to take on Shah Rukh Khan himself in a bid to test his wit. It wrote, “Arre bhai Sharukh @iamsrk! Meri mummy ne aaj aapko bahut bada compliment diya! Boli aap mere jaise dikhten hain!!!! humne kaha haan dimple toh same hai par dressing sense apna thoda theek karo guru!!! (Oh brother Shah Rukh, My mummy gave you the biggest compliment today. She said that you resemble me. I told her that you indeed have a dimple just like mine, but you need to improve your fashion sense.)”
Pat came Shah Rukh’s reply, ” meri mummy kehti thi aadmi kapde banata hai, kapde aadmi ko nahi! Aapki DP dekh ke lagta hai ki saat janam mein bhi mera dressing sense aap sa nahi ho payega.Baaki dimples hain mere aapke jaise, uske liye thanks! Tum bahut Kachhe insaan!! oops, Achhe insaan lagte ho! (My mummy used to tell me man makes the clothes, clothes don’t make a man. Looking at your DP, I think I wouldn’t be able to match your fashion sense even in seven incarnations. Rest, thank you for highlighting that I too have dimples just like yours. You are very incomplete, oops, good man.)”
A day later, Shah Rukh teased Bauua Singh on Twitter when he wrote addressing him, “Suna hai tum jiske peeche lag jaate ho, life bana dete ho… tumhare peeche koi lag jaaye toh kya banate ho bhai..?”
Zero is set to release on 21 December this year.
