"Sorry yaar, I wanted to wear a suit and stuff but I'm shooting the whole night so dressed comfortably," the actor told NDTV on the sidelines of the event.
Not that we complained. We loved the dishevelled look on King Khan.
But while he may have been wearing fatigues, fatigue was also clearly setting in for King Khan who still had a night of work ahead for him.
So how was the new year treating him?
With an exhausted sigh, SRK responded, "Work, work and more work. Every year just slides into the other with more work."
Asked about the possibility of a May-December romance between him and Alia Bhatt on screen, SRK, in his trademark witty style, said, "But I'm much younger than Alia. It's a December-May romance."
With that, he stepped out into the night to work into the wee hours of Wednesday. And we guess that's why King Khan is never dated!
