New Delhi, Aug 12: If Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan would not have been an actor, he would have been a software engineer. Don't be surprised to hear this as Shah Rukh Khan himself told this to Sundar Pichai, the new Google CEO in October 2014.

SRK was participating in a 30-minute chat with Sundar Pichai at Googleplex, while promoting his film Happy New Year in October 2014.

Sundar Pichai's offer to Shah Rukh!
He said that he wanted to be a software engineer, not an actor. "No, really. I look stupid but I'm not, I'm really intelligent. I did electronics and got 98," SRK told the disbelieving Google crowd.

He also told the crowd that he even took the IIT entrance exam.

"Those were the days of diodes and triodes, not chips and things."
