Fans have told me not to take 4 year-break again: Shah Rukh

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who was on a four-year hiatus before he returned to the movies last year, says fans’ love for his three films ‘Pathaan’, ‘Jawan’, and ‘Dunki’ is a sign that they don’t want him to stay away from the big screen for a long time.

Shah Rukh was speaking at the fan meet-and-greet for ‘Dunki’, his last film of 2023. He had started the year with ‘Pathaan’ and followed it up with ‘Jawan’. All three films turned out to be commercial successes.

For someone who has been working continuously for 33 years, taking “such a big gap” was new for him, the 58-year-old actor said. “Normally, you feel a little nervous and you feel that, ‘I hope I’ve got the film right’. Previously, some of my films didn’t do well so I thought I’m not making good films. But I think more than my films, it was the love of the people for ‘Pathaan’, ‘Jawan’, and ‘Dunki’…

“This whole country and people outside of India have taken me to their heart more than the films and said, ‘Don’t take a break for four years, two to four months are fine’. So, I’m very, very thankful to all of you, to the audience and the whole world for making me realize that what I do is right and I should keep on doing it,” Shah Rukh said at the event on Monday.
