New Delhi:

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan is a person who stardom speaks for himself. He enjoys a huge fan base and plays in millions when it come to earnings.

However, there was a time when King Khan had meagre pay.

Yes! it's true.

The 'Dilwale' actor has revealed that his first salay was merely Rs 50 as he was an usher in a Pankaj Udhas concert. 

While that first income was quite special for SRK, he spent it in the most special way.

"I went to Taj Mahal in train with my first income", said Shah Rukh.

"I have travelled some long distances when I was younger. I did one, when I got my first earning from Pankaj Udhas concert, I was an usher. We got Rs 50, so we went to Taj Mahal, saved money," the 51-year-old actor said. 

The "Fan" star said that on his way back, he had pink lassi in a huge glass which messed up with his stomach. 

"There they used to give this Pink lassi. We were so hungry, we had nothing to eat, but the lassi was big. But I think there was a bumble bee in it. I remember the whole way back from Agra to Delhi I was throwing up." 

King Khan has travelled to Delhi from Mumbai through  August Kranti for promotions of his latest "Raees".

"I am very happy. Had come to Mumbai first time in train. I am excited but nervous too because I am going in a train after a long time. This is a long journey but we will have fun, the entire team of 'Raees' is here." 

His film "Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge" had an iconic train scene with Kajol in the climax.

When asked if he knew the sequence would become iconic, Shah Rukh says, "I never thought that. We had very little time to shoot, had to wrap up things quickly. Kajol was running, my hands were stretched out, I didn't know it would become famous." 

The actor says he is not "nervous" before the release of "Raees", which hits the screens on January 25.

"When people people make you a star, there should be expectations. If they don't have any expectations from me then who else. I am not nervous, the film has substance and popular masala. It is a good mix of both. I feel it's a good film. People will like it", said Shah Rukh.
