But one day, he came to me and said, ‘Can we drop this idea, Shah Rukh? I’ve got a love story to do.”

He revealed that Pathaan was offered to him amid the Covid-19 pandemic and he didn’t want to miss the opportunity. “That was years ago. So, this time when he said Pathaan, it was COVID and just a little shooting was allowed. I quickly jumped on it and told my team, ‘Let’s do it before he cancels.’ So, I worked out and built a body. But they didn’t want any of it. They told me, ‘You just do cool actions. You are easy,” he recalled. SRK also mentioned Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge which established him as a true-blue romantic hero.
