Brad Pitt and SRK – FULL TRANSCRIPT:

Interviewer:

You know, I’m just going to say it because I’m pretty sure everyone in this room is saying it in their heads. This is a pretty incredible moment. Brad Pitt and Shahrukh Khan, two of the biggest global superstars. Gentlemen, this is a very special moment.

Brad Pitt:

Alright. Good on you.

Interviewer:

Brad, this is not your first time in India, is it?

Brad Pitt:

No, no. We actually shot a Mighty Heart here. So, we were here for a few months and got to explore a lot of the country. It was a fantastic experience. Good to be back here.

Interviewer:

You know, there are locals in Pune who got used to seeing you on the bike and you waving out to them.

Brad Pitt:

Yeah, it was good. I got to scoot around on an old Royal Enfield and put a helmet on and just get out amongst the masses. It was really nice.

Interviewer:

You know, it’s interesting. Both of you actually started your movie careers around the same time. Brad, Thelma, and Louise, your big breakout, released in 1991. And that led to this exciting long career. Shahrukh, Deewana, which was your first film, big runaway success released in 1992. What’s the secret to staying relevant, successful, and influential for 25 years.

Brad Pitt:

Hoof. You want to take that one?

Shahrukh Khan:

No, I will give it to you.

Brad Pitt:

I will say luck, I will say a little bit of luck. But also, trying to reinvent, you know, constantly trying to look for something new, something different. And I, you know, fortunately, I guess we were able to survive our mistakes along the way. And I think just staying relative.

Shahrukh Khan:

Yeah, mainly that. I think, you know, to be able to survive your mistakes and mistakes are normally things which are very close to your heart, you know? And if they went wrong somewhere down the line, the only thing that keeps you going is the fact that you’re still surviving. And you try and do it as often as you can, as much as possible.

And I think, he more than me will tell you that, you know, to be such a successful star around the world, there are a lot of, lot more expectations from you and you need to keep it very simple then. You don’t need to be trying to work for those expectations or keep on doing the stuff that people expect of you. You keep on doing what started you off, which is being relevant, being novel, trying to, you know, kind of reinvent yourself and the simple things which made you want to be an actor in the first place.

Interviewer:

You know, you both have enormous success, but also enormous pressure. How do you balance or how do you really combine artistic integrity with commercial success? Because that’s a huge pressure on both of you, right, I would imagine.

Brad Pitt:

I will say, you just have to make sure you get time for yourself, time for your friends, time for your family, and let the next idea percolate. And it’s not, it’s not so difficult to achieve a balance. I’m able to compartmentalize pretty well, the private life and the public life. How about you?

Shahrukh Khan:

I do that too completely. I mean, as far as work is concerned, I think what he says is the, actually the crux of it, you know, if you can be leading your public life, which is on sets also, invariably, I think if you can protect it in terms of that from your private life and your private life from the public life. I think when you go back home and you’re leading the regular stuff that you’re supposed to do, in whatever form with family, friends, I think it just keeps you kind of grounded. You know, like my kids, I mean more often than not don’t like my films. That nice.

Interviewer:

Really?

Brad Pitt:

Yeah.

Shahrukh Khan:

And that’s nice. Oh, this one was so boring papa. So, you know, it’s like, it’s not the biggest thing in the house, Papa’s film to do well. It is not a special thing. It should not be a special thing with family and friends. And invariably, you know, we make friends even in the film industry, and then everybody kind of just starts pushing you along and saying, you know, this was the best thing you did. Yeah, it was different. I think the real friends in the film industry also tell you, oh, keep it simple and keep it normal. I think that’s what actually really helps you and takes the pressure off. That at home you’re a nobody. And as long as you’re a nobody with your friends and at home, I think you can be a big star like Brad Pitt outside.
