"Been strapped around the joints last few days. Realised the truth of life through bandages. Not too tight not too loose, keeps it comfortable," Shah Rukh Khan posted on the microblogging site Twitter on Wednesday.
However, for the actor, the "Not too tight not too loose" philosophy doesn't apply to hugs from his children.
"The not too loose or tight philosophy of life doesn't apply to these hugs. These ones tighter the better," he posted with a picture of him hugging his son Aryan and daughter Suhana.
Happy New Year is being directed by Farah Khan and will release this Diwali. The film also features Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Sonu Sood, Boman Irani and Vivaan Shah among others.
