During the discussion, SRK didn’t disclose the film’s name but confessed to doing just one movie solely for financial reasons. He said, “Mein naam nahi lunga par sirf ek film maine paise ke liye ki thi. Maine abhi tak 60 films ki hai. Aur mujh malum bhi tha, maine producer ko bhi bol dia tha, maine ghar liya tha uss film ki fees se, mujh bahut zaroorat thi. Jab mere halaat theek-thak hogae, toh jab maine recently apni saare films vapas kharedna shuru kia, woh pehli film thi jo maine vapas li, mujh aisa lagta hai ki maine uss film ki payment vapas ki hai (I will not take its name, but I have only done one film for money. I have done 60 films till now. I bought my first house from the fees of that film. I needed that money. But when I got financial stability and I started buying my films, that was the first film I bought. I feel I have returned the payment of that film).”

He added, “Mujhe dil nahi tha woh film karneka, par maine ek he film aaj tak apna zameer bhechke paisa ke liye ki hai (I didn’t have the heart to do that film, but that was the only film for which I sold my conscience for money).”

SRK’s recent blockbuster Jawan, directed by Atlee, shattered box-office records, amassing over Rs 1000 crores worldwide. The film featured Nayanthara, Vijay Sethupathi, and Deepika Padukone in pivotal roles. The actor has Rajkumar Hirani’s Dunki in the pipeline. The film is slated for release on December 21, marking SRK’s fourth film appearance this year, which includes a cameo in Salman Khan’s Tiger 3. Dunki stars Taapsee Pannu, Vicky Kaushal, and Boman Irani in pivotal roles.
