Superstar Shah Rukh Khan says that he is not playing a warrior or a guide in any film yet, as was reported based on one of his tweets.
“i am a warrior,a dwarf & a guide. i am not wot i ought to, want or hope to be. i am all that & i am wot i am. My 2 bits on my upcoming roles,” he had said in the tweet.
Asked about the cryptic tweet at an event for furnishing brand D’Decor, Shah Rukh said: “I have been reading, I sometimes just comment on what I read. So I was reading that I’m a warrior in Adi’s (Aditya Chopra) film, I’m a dwarf in Aanand’s (Rai) film, which I am, I’m a guide in one of the other films and a counsellor in Gauri Shinde’s film. And there were two other films that I was doing, which I am not, at this point, at least.
“I’m sure that one day somebody will take me as a warrior also and also as a guide. Somebody started writing that the film is based on the wonderful classic ‘Guide’ by Dev Anand sahab and Vijay Anand sahab. But it’s not like that. I just commented on what I am cryptically reading on Twitter. It wasn’t that I was making a comment on myself.”
Shah Rukh had also shared another tweet on that day which said ‘revealing Imtiaz Ali story’ and following that up with a philosophical quote, indicating his next film with “Highway” director Imtiaz Ali.
Shah Rukh’s film “Raees” was earlier slated to clash with Salman Khan’s “Sultan” on Eid. But he recently stated that the film got delayed by eight to nine months due to a leg injury he sustained during the shoot of the film.
About his injury, he said: “I am working out on my leg. I’m doing some physiotherapy. I have taken time off films and every day I exercise at least one to one and half hours for the leg. Otherwise I would have had to undergo a surgery which is a long procedure, so I don’t want to do it. God willing, by the time I start Imtiaz’s film, before that I have two months, so working hard on it.”
Shah Rukh was last seen in Rohit Shetty’s ‘Dilwale’.
