Addressing his four-year-long break, Shah Rukh Khan said, “Those cameos also I think I shot either before or during those four years break. I was taking a one-year break. I thought I’ll wait for a year, and get physically fit. There was a film of mine, Zero, there was a lot of hard work put into it but it didn’t work. No one even like it, I felt bad also. But then I thought I will do what people like — Maine dil ki bahut kar li. So I’ll also try to do something which people also like me doing but different for me so I took a break for a year.”
Speaking about how he became physically fit for Pathaan,stated, “I got to spend a lot of time with my kids, physically I became very fit. I started working out because there was nothing else to do. All of us were at home and locked up so I would work out in the gym, I would work in the kitchen, I would wash some clothes, I did all the household work and became fit (laughs). But it was great fun.” Helmed by Siddharth Anand, this entertainer is set to hit the screens on January 25, 2023.
