At the 'Pathaan' success bash in Mumbai on January 30, Shah Rukh Khan touched upon the harsh reality that stars encounter while working in films, something that nobody knows or rather observes. 'King' Khan also emphasized the importance of working harder and focusing on perfecting the craft with each film. To drive home his point, he shared a thought-provoking line. He said, "See yaha par hum bade achche kapde pehen kar aate hai. Lekin Monday ko jab hum shooting par jaate hai, hum labour class ki tarah jaate hai." (See, when we come here, we wear good clothes. But when we go to shooting on film sets each Monday, we go just like a labour class).
Shah Rukh started off by saying, "See yaha par hum bade achche kapde pehen kar aate hai. Lekin Monday ko jab hum shooting par jaate hai, hum labour class ki tarah jaate hai." He adds, "Apne hunar ko, apni mehnat ko firse tarashna padta hai har din, ke isse behtar karna hai, aur mehnat karni hai. If you can't do it, then you should not make films which is what I believe. If you can't do that. Then you are not made for working in this industry."
