- This excruciating wait will end with Siddharth Anand's Pathaan, which will release on January 25, 2023.
- There has never been a better time to be a King Khan fan!
Not arrogant, this is the 'belief' SRK sleeps with
The Don actor further supported his claims by saying he wasn't being "arrogant" and added, "That's the belief I sleep with." "If I did not have that belief that I am making a product that lots of people are going to like, then I won't be able to do it. So. it's not an arrogant statement, this is what I like to believe."
SRK also spoke about the unpredictable climate in Bollywood
SRK also didn't mince his words about the unpredictability surrounding films. He said, "I do make a Zero. Sometimes my efforts come to the fore, and there is a Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge." Charming audiences with his wit and humor again, Khan added, "If I may take my name in the third person, I am excited to see Shah Rukh Khan on screen again."
