“There is something wrong in me. I sense it. I feel it but I don’t know what it is,” he said during the ThinkFest conclave, an annual event, in Goa, according to The Times of India.
“I have a beautiful family. I have a few friends with whom I spend lot of time. I don’t want to die like my father.
“I don’t want to be unknown. I would like to be just successful. Believe me it is lonely at the top.”
Khan, who turned 47 last week, is currently penning an autobiography.
“Somehow there is this feeling of emptiness,” he was quoted as saying. “I have this restlessness, strangeness, which I fill up with my acting.”
And Khan recalled how his family was always struggling for money when he was young.
“Once, my father took me to show a cinema in Delhi. He did not have enough money. We sat near Kamani auditorium and he told me that it is wonderful to see the vehicles passing,” he said.
“When I want to take my son out for a movie I should be able to show him the movie and not the cars.”
And he said he always feared he would struggle like his father, who died when Khan was 15.
“I think my father was most successful failure in the world and I am proud of him,” the actor said, adding that his father was a “handsome pathan”.
He added: “A lot of things which are Bollywood-like or flamboyant in me are actually to cover up my emotions. I don’t have guts to be so simple. To avoid depression I act.”
