When Shah Rukh was asked about the cryptic tweet at an event, he said: "I have been reading. I just comment on what I read at times. So, I was reading that I'm a warrior in Adi's (Aditya Chopra) film. I'm a dwarf in Aanand's (Aanand L 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 and also as a guide. Somebody started writing that the film is based on the wonderful classic Guide by Dev Anand saab and Vijay Anand saab. 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," added Shah Rukh.
On June 18, Shah Rukh had tweeted:
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'— Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) June 18, 2016
Shah Rukh's film Raees was earlier scheduled 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. Raees will now release on January 26, 2017.
"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 my 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 Ali's film. Before that, I have two months. So, I am working hard on it," said Shah Rukh.
Shah Rukh was last seen in Fan.
