His dancing, his charm, and his devoted fans make it seem otherwise, but Shah Rukh Khan seems to be losing his patience with Bollywood. At a Friday talk organised by Netflix, Shah Rukh Khan talked movies with Brad Pitt, who was in Mumbai promoting his new film War Machine.

“Hoe long does it take to shoot a Bollywood film?” Brad Pitt asked. “If it’s an action/dancing film, about 120 days, 140 days. Sometimes longer, if things go wrong,” said Shah Rukh, “And if it’s a simpler film, about 70 days.” “It’s about the same with us,” nodded Pitt, “and we don’t have dancing! I would never make it in Bollywood because I can’t dance.”

Then, Shah Rukh proceeded to show him the classic Shah Rukh dance move, and promised Pitt that he could get him to dance. “We make everyone dance in Bollywood,” he said.

“If we don’t adapt ourselves in terms of marketing, visual effects, scriptwriting and professionalism, we will be overtaken,” declared Shah Rukh. “If we do not learn from Hollywood, there is a real fear. Spider-Man does as well as a Hindi film, so we have to adapt. Scripting especially. If we don’t do that, we’ll have an issue over the next 20 years.”

“We have such wonderful stories to tell but we aren’t telling them well enough. We treat our stories like fads. Singing and dancing has to be a part of Bollywood movies, if only to keep Brad away from our movies.”
