SRK backed up the announcement to also surprise his fans with an impromptu #AskSRK interaction round on Twitter and was bombarded with questions.

Replying to this, SRK wrote, "Ok next time I will be 'Khabardaar' #Pathaan."
This comes in reference to the recent controversies as SRK’s son was arrested in an alleged drug cruise case in Mumbai. A section of social media users also trolled him for allegedly spitting on late legendary mortal remains at her funeral. Later it was cleared through viral pictures that he “blowed” on her mortal remains as "a religious practise after reciting dua (prayer)."
