Actor Shah Rukh Khan expressed his gratitude towards his fans while interacting with them on Monday at the YRF studios in Mumbai. The actor was at the venue for Dunki’s welcome event. On X (formerly Twitter), a fan club shared a video in which Shah Rukh spoke about his return to the big screen with Pathaan and how nervous he was. He also shared that the love and support from his fans and the public make him believe that what he does is, in fact, right. (Also Read | Shah Rukh Khan set the stage on fire at the Umang event)
Shah Rukh spoke about his 4-year gap with Pathaan
Shah Rukh said at the event: “It’s new because I have been working for 33 years and there is a big void. Normally, you get a little nervous and feel like ‘I hope I have done the film well’. Usse pehle kuch meri filmein thi jo itni acchi nahi gayi toh mujhe lagne laga tha ki main acchi filmein bana nhi raha hun (Before that, some of my films did not do well and I thought I was not making good films.) But I think more than my films ek pyaar tha logo ka jo (there was love for) Pathaan, Jawan and Dunki k liye.”
Shah Rukh hints that Pathaan, Jawan and Dunki were the right choices
“I think this entire country and people outside this country of India have taken me seriously more than the films and said, ‘Aare 4 saal k liye mat jaya karo, 2-4 mahine theek hai (don’t take a break for 4 years, 2-4 months is fine).’ So, I am very grateful to all of you, the audience and the whole world for making me realize ki jo main karta hun woh theek karta hun aur mujhe woh baar baar karte rehna chahiye (that what I do is right and I should continue doing it).”
Shah Rukh Khan’s films in 2023: Pathaan
After a few years of difficult phases, Shah Rukh, in 2023, made a grand comeback. He returned to the big screen with Siddharth Anand’s Pathaan in January. In the movie, he donned an action avatar and left everyone amazed. The film broke several box office records and earned a place in the list of one of the highest grossing films of the Indian film industry.
Pathaan marked Shah Rukh’s first hit after his four-year sabbatical after committing a string of flops like Zero and Jab Harry Met Sejal. In Pathaan, he starred alongside Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, among others.
Shah Rukh’s jawan
After Pathaan, Shah Rukh returned to theaters in September with Jawan directing Atlee. The film once again saw him in an action avatar. Like Pathaan, Jawan also managed to strike a chord with the audience. The collected film $1,000 crores at the global box office. Jawan also featured Nayanthara, Vijay Sethupathi, Deepika Padukone (special appearance), Priyamani and Sanya Malhotra.
Shah Rukh’s Dunki
On December 21, he came up with his first collaboration with Rajkumar Hirani. Titled Dunki, the film focuses on the issue of immigration. Its title comes from the term “donkey journey,” which refers to the long, winding, often dangerous routes that people from all over the world take to reach the places they want to immigrate to. However, the film received mixed reviews from audiences. It performed well at the box office. The film also stars Taapsee Pannu, Vicky Kaushal and Boman Irani.
