Bradd Pitt was recently in India to promote his new Netflix movie, “The War Machine”, a satirical war drama directed by David Michod, and he had SRK to play host to him. After Brad Pitt was done with the media interactions, Brad Pitt, SRK and Rajeev Masand indulged in a candid chat, the gist of which is given below.
The session began with a juxtaposition of Pitt’s War Machine and Khan’s 2015 release Dilwale(Probably for the lack of a better movie). With a few journalists in tow, the interaction began with Rajeev Masand playing the jovial host asking cliched questions, a weary looking and jet lagged Brad Pitt, probably displaying the gruesome plight of an A-list actor’s publicity schedule and then there was SRK, the extra who probably ended up grabbing all the limelight.
As the conversation progressed, both of them talked about their careers, a story both of them had gained perfection by repeating it over the time. SRK was all praise about Brad Pitt, and remarked that the “12 Monkeys”, “Fight CLub” and “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” as some his favourites, but when asked whether Brad would like to act in a Bollywood movie, Brad Pitt only had one reply-“I cannot dance”, referring to the apparent lack of skill set to act in Bollywood movies, which specialise in dance and music.
Later on, SRK demonstrated his patent dance step, with his arms held out wide, a near hugging stance, but quite not right there and elevated him to the status of the King of Romance when it comes to Bollywood. When Brad tried to replicate this, his half-hearted attempts yielded no significant results. Later on, Brad Pitt talked about his experience on turning producer and turned a bit nostalgic about the time he visited India for the first time to shoot for his movie “A Mighty Heart” in 2007, and ended with the usual platitudes where he said that he was “constantly trying to reinvent himself” and “was lucky to survive his mistakes”, thus bringing down the curtain on an eventful evening.
