In a candid interview, Bollywood Badshah Shah Rukh Khan reveals the reasons behind his five-year break from movies. After a string of high-budget flops, he admits to taking a time-out to "lick his wounds." But instead of wallowing, he took an unexpected detour - mastering the art of pizza-making. This introspective period, he says, helped him regain perspective and reconnect with his audience's desires.

Khan's family and team played a crucial role in his return. Their encouragement, he says, pushed him to shed unnecessary "indulgence" and focus on delivering content that resonates. He acknowledges losing touch with the audience's expectations, admitting, "I used to go where the crowds were, but I didn't hear them."

His comeback strategy? Returning to the themes that resonate most with his fans - "hope, happiness, and love." And it paid off handsomely. 2023 saw him deliver three consecutive hits, including two record-breaking blockbusters. From action-packed thrillers like "Pathaan" and "Jawan" to lighthearted comedies like "Dunki," Khan proved that he's still the king of the box office.

This open and relatable interview offers a glimpse into the mind of a megastar as he navigates both personal setbacks and triumphant returns. It's a story of introspection, resilience, and ultimately, a love for connecting with his fans through the magic of movies.
