And those who gave me the opportunity as you will notice the film is a very big film, it will be an expensive film,” SRK said at the event.
He further added, ”But to get me and give me a chance to come at the time I was not working and allow me to be a part of this film. I will ever ever be grateful to Aditya Chopra and Siddharth. And also to Deepika. I have forgotten those 4 years in these 4 days.
