Bollywood Actor Is A God Among Men

MUMBAI, India (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise have some devoted fans, but they have nothing on international Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan, who even has to fend off religious fanatics.

That’s the holy truth from Bollywood expert Anupama Chopra, who says the star is often mistaken for a god in his native India.

Chopra spent years talking to the Bollywood heartthrob for her new book, King Of Bollywood: Shah Rukh Khan and the Seductive World of Indian Cinema (Warner Books), and discovered confused fans often believe he possesses godly powers.

Says Chopra: “Shah told me once that a woman came up to his gate begging to wash his feet so she could drink the dirty water and have a part of him in her. I don’t think Brad Pitt has to worry about that!”
