Shah Rukh Khan has undergone 11 surgeries since the release of his 1995 blockbuster Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, the 58-year-old actor revealed during an Ask SRK session on X (formerly Twitter) on Wednesday.

"Life is a run. I am so glad that even after 11 surgeries, I can still run the same, and my same t-shirt fits me just fine," the actor wrote in response to a fan’s question about whether he was wearing his DDLJ t-shirt in a scene from Dunki trailer. .


The Bollywood star also displayed his witty side while responding to a troll attempting to mock his previous movies, Pathaan and Jawan.

The troll took a dig at Shah Rukh, stating, "Due to your highly effective and efficient PR team, your last two movies became blockbusters... do you still have faith in your PR and marketing team that #Dunki will also become a hit and will be another golden film from #Bollywood #AskSrk."

Never one to back down, Shah Rukh replied with his trademark wit, "Normally I don’t answer amazingly intelligent people like you. But in your case, I am making an exception because I feel you need to be treated for constipation. Will tell my PR team to send you some golden medicines…hope u recover soon."

Shah Rukh had a humorous reply for a user who asked him whether Dunki has any “sax sux” scenes. “Sax Sux toh samjha nahi….tickets pe Tax Tux zaroor hoga. Daddy se le lena,” was the Jawan actor’s reply.

In addition to his quick comebacks, Shah Rukh also shared valuable insights during the interactive session. When asked about the most valuable life lesson he has learnt throughout his journey in the film industry and life in general, he replied, "There is nothing more beautiful than your own family and friends."

Addressing queries about Dunki, a fan inquired whether there would be any Punjabi dialogues spoken by Shah Rukh in the film. To this, he candidly responded, "Not too many. I don’t speak it too well, so have left that part to @taapsee and #Vicky; they are brilliant."

When another user asked whether Dunki will be an emotional film, Shah Rukh warned him to get ready for shedding a lot of tears. “Sorry yaar bahut rona aayega….” he wrote.
