Bengaluru: All you Shah Rukh Khan fans out there, are you all sad that you have not been able to watch your heartthrob in action for quite some time now? At the same time, are you all puzzled?

The actor was last seen in Zero, directed by Aanand L Rai, which released six months ago. The movie didn’t do well at the box office.

Well, the truth has come out straight from the horse’s mouth. In an interview with Filmfare, the actor said, “I have no films as of now. I am not working on any film. Usually, what happens is when your one film comes to an end, you begin work on your next film. I get involved within 3-4 months. But this time, I am not just feeling like it… My heart doesn’t allow me to… I just felt that I should rather take time out, watch films, listen to stories and read more books. Even my kids are in their college years… My daughter is going to college and my son is about to finish his studies. So, I just want to spend more time with my family.”

While his fans kept guessing as to what he would do, there was speculation that the actor would act in astronaut Rakesh Sharma’s biopic, but reports state that the actor opted out of the movie. It was later speculated that Vicky Kaushal replaced Shah Rukh Khan in the film.

Before Zero, Shah Rukh Khan had another loss in the form of Jab Harry Met Sejal directed by Imitaz Ali.
