Hamari trah (Sir, are you also unemployed now, like the rest of us?),” the fan asked, to which Shah Rukh gave a cryptic response: “Jo kuch nahi karte….woh (Those who don’t do anything, they)…”
On being asked about the release of his next film, Shah Rukh said, “Right now with the situation I think it’s prudent to make film release schedules with a bit of patience.” He will make his acting comeback with Siddharth Anand’s action drama Pathan, which also stars Deepika Padukhone.
