"All alone on Eid... on a thin winding road. Nowhere and everywhere. Just gave myself a hug after a long time. Will celebrate with happy winds," Shah Rukh tweeted on Monday.
The 46-year-old wanted to be with his family in Mumbai to ring in the festival. But work commitments for the last schedule of his new film didn't allow him to travel home.
Shah Rukh, who reportedly plays an army man in the film, himself suggested that some portions should be shot in Ladakh.
The movie, slated for a Nov 13 release, also stars Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma.
