Readers would be aware that Shah Rukh Khan celebrated the success of his second release this year, Jawan, which seems to be breaking records created by Pathaan too. While celebrating the success of this South-Bollywood collaboration, which has been creating quite a stir at the box office, Shah Rukh Khan opened up about the first time he visited the sets of Pathaan after his three-year sabbatical. He said, “Main bhi bahut nervous tha ki maine itne saal kaam nahi kiya (I was very nervous because I hadn’t worked for so many years). For me to return to a set after three years itself was very new.”
He further credited Aryan Khan for encouraging him, adding, “It was feeling very, very different. My elder son told me, ‘When we were growing up, we knew what stardom in the air feels like because your films were big hits. The daughter (Suhana) says I know it. But this little one (AbRam) knows you’re a star but has never seen or felt it in the air. So next five films, please work very hard. He'll feel it in the air. He'll love and respect you."
