According to an Indian Express report, Shah Rukh Khan always wanted to become an action hero and do action films since Khan was hesitant about doing romantic movies because he felt they were boring.

Talking about his desires Khan said, “I have had this big desire to do an action film, ever since I entered the film industry. When we (producer Aditya Chopra and Khan) started off, he wrote action film for me. I never thought I could do romance or social drama. But one day, he came to me and said, ‘Can we drop this idea, Shah Rukh? I’ve got a love story to do.”

Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995) became a huge success and the rest is history. While taking up the Pathaan offer, Khan said, “That was years ago. So, this time when he said Pathaan, it was COVID and just a little shooting was allowed. I quickly jumped on it and told my team, ‘Let’s do it before he cancels.’ So, I worked out and built a body. But they didn’t want any of it. They told me, ‘You just do cool action. You are easy.”

Khan will next be seen in Pathaan along with Deepika Padukone and John Abraham. The film's release date is January 25, 2023
