Shah Rukh Khan has finally addressed some of the rumors that have plagued his 20-year Hindi film career in his new interview for Cosmopolitan India. In the interview, SRK spoke candidly about the rumors that say he could be gay and the others that say he sleeps with his female Bollywood co-stars.
“King Khan” made it clear that he doesn’t let the rumors affect his life with his wife, Gauri Khan.
”I’m a movie star, I’ve been working for 20 years. I work with the most beautiful women in the world,” he said. “Whether I think of it like that or not, there are enough stories to go around that I sleep around with foreigners, with men, with my co actresses. But it has never affected us because I guess she knows I don’t have the time to do anything but work.”

The Dilwale actor also insisted that his marriage is as fresh today as it was when he married his wife. He blames that on his hectic schedule as an actor and businessman.
“My wife is anything but my sister. Yes I haven’t had much time to spend with her over the years, because of my schedule, so the freshness of my marriage is still quite intact.”
“We’ve never thought the same-about films, about life-and we’ve never tried to change that about each other. The only thing we are completely aligned in thought about are the kids. Both of us have become very focused about them and that has become the centre of our lives.”
Despite being married to Gauri, SRK has been romantically linked to a number of his female co-stars. One of the most notable of these alleged affairs involved the current star of ABC’s Quantico, Priyanka Chopra, Filmi Beat notes. The two actors starred in a Hindi film called Don which is a favorite among many Bollywood fans.

SRK also revealed some other interesting tidbits in his Cosmo interview that may surprise some of his fans. Despite the fact that he needs to look good for his acting appearances, Khan confessed to being anything but a health nut. Even though he’s 50, Khan doesn’t seem too concerned about his health at all.
“I smoke about a 100 cigarettes a day. I forget to eat. I don’t drink water. I have 30 cups of black coffee, and I have a six-pack,” Shah Rukh said when the interviewer asked him if he takes care of his health. “So, the less I take care of myself, the more I get taken care of. I think healthy is boring. I’m not saying do drugs…but if you’re happy doing what you want then everything will fall into place.”
