Dalip Tahil recalls encounter with Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘besotted’ fan

During an episode of Untriggered with Aminjaz, Dalip Tahil was posed with the question of whether it’s considered a compliment when audiences despise a character portrayed by an actor in a negative role. The seasoned actor responded, saying, “It’s sort of strange because it is a compliment that they actually don’t like you because the audience associates you with the character. I did it so well that so and so hates my guts. And it happened to me.”

He went on to recount a memorable encounter, saying, “At Heathrow Airport in London, I was just about to go to the boarding place. And this girl came to me and she said, ‘Why did you beat Shah Rukh Khan so much? Why did you?’ She was clearly and totally besotted with Shah Rukh. And the way she said it to me, I began to feel really terrible.”

Tahil emphasized that such things can indeed leave a lasting impact on individuals, especially those who are emotionally vulnerable. He shared, “So I said, ‘Well, he hit me as well.’ She said, ‘That doesn’t matter. You’re the bad guy. He’s going to hit you. But why did you do this to him?’ I mean, it has a deep impact on people’s minds, particularly people who are vulnerable.”
