'Late nights, long shoots,' noted the actor, now 50, adding a thank you note to director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, with whom SRK now reportedly shares an uncomfortable equation.

Devdas, Mr Bhansali's reimagining of the Bengali novel by Sharat Chandra Chattopadhyay, released on July 12, 2002.
It featured lavish sets, spectacular costumes and a now-legendary dance number featuring actresses Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Madhuri Dixit, who played Paro and Chandramukhi.
Devdas was screened at the Cannes Film Festival the year it released - it was Aishwarya's first time at Cannes and she's never missed an appearance since.
On Twitter, fan clubs have provided pictures of SRK and Aishwarya at Cannes 14 years ago:
In a live Twitter chat on Monday, SRK was asked by a fan whether or not he should 'express (his) feelings.' SRK's answer referenced the film and its lovelorn, alcoholic hero:
You can keep it inside & b Devdas or express them and if rejected u can again be Devdas. If accepted send me a gift https://t.co/SrGNT4bUJR? Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) July 11, 2016
Devdas swept the award season after it released, winning five National Awards and 10 Filmfare trophies.
