Clearing the air about the change in the release date of "Raees" to January 25, the actor said that they had decided it in advance. "We had actually decided about the release date long back but wanted it to be announced through the trailer. I guess 'Kaabil' is coming out in the evening shows of January 25 and we would be coming on the regular shows on the same day."

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan says that his acting capabilities got affected by his stardom but that hasn't stopped him from being a versatile actor. "I am here to play different kind of roles. I think my stardom has overtaken my acting capability and it's alright."  King Khan thinks that being normal is lifeless. "I am not arrogant or shoddy but I am a bad boy. I don't go by rules and do and say weird things. I feel that normal is lifeless, one has to be a little mean. I am extremely bad but my dimples save me," he jokes.
