Shah Rukh said in the video, “I was 14 when my father died, so I had a mother. My mother had no brothers and her father had passed away. So I had three aunts and a grandmother. And then my mother passed away. Then I had a wife and then I had a daughter. And in between these two, I started working with all the girls in the country when I became an actor.”

He further added, "The whole idea of what a woman is changed when I started working with all the girls that I worked with. They work harder than I do. They come four or five hours before I even land on sets. They are somehow considered secondary in the scheme of things of this film world. It's a man's world. And they've taught me that I have to request them to get a yes out of them, sometimes implore, many times beg, but never, never to force a yes out of them."

Shah Rukh was last seen in the 2018 film Zero, opposite Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif. He will now be seen in Siddharth Anand's Pathaan, Rajkumar Hirani's Dunki and Atlee's Jawan.
