When Shah Rukh Khan prayed for the first time in his life as his mother battled death in intensive care: ‘I went to the parking lot and prayed’


In 1992, Shah Rukh Khan moved his audience when he won the newcomer award at an awards ceremony and dedicated it to his mother Lateef Fatima Khan shortly after her death. He recalled the time he got a medal in class 3 and how he ran home to show his mother, but she wasn’t there. The experience was like deja vu and he said: “The first time I get a major award in the film industry, it still isn’t there. This one’s for you mom. She had died in 1990.

Later, SRK spoke about that moment to Simi Garewal, who recalled the silence of the moment and the thunderous applause that followed. SRK regretfully mentioned that his mother had never seen his success. “I want my mom to see me, 70mm, much bigger than me,” he told Simi. When Simi mentioned the awards ceremony and the applause, he said he didn’t remember much else: “At that time, I remembered my mother too much. All I remember about her is that she wasn’t like me.

SRK continued to describe his mother in emotional terms, as someone who was “very different” from him, as she enjoyed meeting people. “She was very social and she loved meeting people. She brought a lot of life to wherever she was, just by being herself. I say it’s different to me because a lot of people could see me at a movie function, but that was because I was a star, not just being Shah Rukh. He mentioned how his mother took care of everything after his father died. “She gave us a lot of love and affection, because my father passed away ten years ago and is not in the best financial situation, because he had a costly illness. He died of cancer. She had to run the house, and she was a social worker and a magistrate, she came from a wealthy home which should have made her a spoiled person, but she took it all on herself and I never had to ask twice anything. She gave it to me, never spoiling me.

SRK recalled his death and how unprepared he was for it, even though it was a repeat of the similar pattern he faced with his father, who died of cancer. “I was filming in Goa and she was suffering from diabetes. When I came back from Goa, she had hurt her foot, and it kept spreading. When she was admitted to the hospital, she contracted sepsis. I was not prepared, but I had done the same for my father. I was in the hospital with him, and slowly he went away.

SRK said he never prayed in his life, but when she was fighting for her life in ICU, he prayed in the hospital parking lot. “I wasn’t prepared for her to die. I never used to pray, but when she was in intensive care and having a respiratory attack, I drove down to the parking lot of a hospital and for the first time I prayed. I was told to pray 6000 times and she would have no pain.”

He continued: ‘I did and the doctor told me she was leaving. I believe that you die when you are satisfied with life. So I went downstairs and started giving him trouble, said I wouldn’t be happy, and told him I’d be a bad person, that I’d be abusing his daughter. But she had a beautiful look in her eyes, that said, let me go, I need to rest, and she left.
