The actor, who has been in the industry for over two decades, feels that an actor should act only he feels like, an excuse he hoped his "Happy New Year" director Farah Khan would buy.
"Late for work today. Been in a mood of just being. An actor should only act when he/she feels like, is my excuse. Hope Farah buys it," Shah Rukh tweeted.
The 48-year-old is currently shooting for "Happy New Year", slated to release next year. It also features Abhishek Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Sonu Sood and Boman Irani.
