Expect actor Shah Rukh Khan to let his wit do the talking every time fans or media throws a curveball at him. The actor completed 29 years in the Hindi film industry this week and decided to return the love that his fans shower on him via an ‘Ask Me Anything’ session.

And like every time the actor holds an AMA, the first thing he was asked about was his next release. SRK was last seen in 2018’s Zero, after which he took a long sabbatical. He is now working on Yash Raj Films’ Pathan, co-starring John Abraham and Deepika Padukone. However, the studio and the actor have remained tight-lipped about the project.

When asked if he is ready to announce the release schedule of his films, Shah Rukh said, “Loudspeakers make announcement….I will gently allow my films to enter your hearts….soon.” He also advised prudence during the pandemic when it comes to release announcements. “Right now with the situation I think it’s prudent to make film release schedules with a bit of patience,” he wrote.

As another person asked whether he is up for a dance number if not a film right now, he said, “Nahi yaar ab toh bahut saari movies hi aayengi (No, I will do a lot of movies now).”

He also gave a nod to his Pathan co-star John Abraham. When asked ‘how is your health’, SRK said, “Not as amazing as John Abraham but holding my own…ha ha.” The actor also shared his opinion on Vijay’s look in Beast, calling it ‘ccol’.

His best comeback, however, was in answer to the query, “App bhi Berozgaar ho gaye kya sir.. Hamari trah (You are also unemployed sir, like us).” To this, he replied, “Jo kuch nahi karte….woh…” The actor was referring to a poem by poet Dagh Dehelvi, which goes, “Jo Kuch nahi karte woh kamaal karte hain (Those who don’t do anything, do extraordinary things).”


He also had a philosophical comeback as a fan asked, “How can one over come a heartbreak.. Abhi 15min pehle #AskSRK.”. The actor replied, “You can never overcome it….keep it as a memory and learn from the sadness will make u stronger.”

Another fan wanted to know if there was any truth to the speculation that he is doing a film with Rajkumar Hirani. “Just going to call him and request him….he sleeps late!!” the actor replied.
