He is amongst the brightest stars in Bollywood and she is so much more than just Jenny from the block. Needless to say, Shah Rukh Khan and Jennifer Lopez have fame in common. But, as LIVEINSTYLE.COM discovered after an interaction with SRK, both artistes have a similar emotional outlook to stardom and privacy as well.

“You might think you know me, but when you approach me, you’re a total stranger to me and I’m scared. (I get) very protective of my space,” Lopez confessed not long ago, adding: “Privacy is a full-time job and I work very hard at it.”
Largely echoing the sentiment, SRK once told me: “I don’t have a private life, but I do have a family and that life I’d prefer to keep as private as possible. Even in my ‘public’ life though… I feel people think they know me, but do they really? Is this me, the real me, or the person I am allowing you to see?”
With stars of this stature, fans always feel a certain familiarity. We’ve all seen so much of them (more so now with the advent of social media), that we think of them in first-name terms. Yet, this is a reminder from two of the most famous performers in the world today: what you see isn’t always all there is to them.
Of course, while they guard their privacy fiercely, the mystique incites our insatiable curiosity further. Such is the cycle of stardom, wouldn’t you say?
