Shah Rukh Khan on taking 4-year break
During a candid conversation while interacting with fans, he addressed his 4-years career gap and said, “It’s new because I have been working for 33 years, and you take such a big gap. Normally, you get a little nervous and you feel that, ‘I hope I’ve got the film right’. 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 there were some of my films that didn’t do well and so I thought I’m not making good films). But I think more than my films, ek pyaar tha logo ka jo Pathaan, Jawan and Dunki ke liye (there was a certain form of love Pathaan, Jawan and Dunki).”
He continued, “I think this whole country and people outside this country from India have actually taken me to their heart more than the films and said that, ‘Are 4 saal ke liye mat jaya karo, 2-4 mahine theek hai (don’t take a break for 4 years, 2-4 months are fine)’. So, I’m very very thankful to all of you, to the audience and the whole world for making me realise 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 keep on doing it).”
