I wonder why more such films don’t come to me,…,” said Mr Khan.

“It’s a very earthy role, something that I have missed doing for so many years. Today, I have reached a stage in life where I would want to go in the morning on the sets and feel I have put my best foot forward. I was like this in the first seven-eight years of my career.” the mega star added.
