Shah Rukh Khan is a huge star in India and around the world. He's been in many hit movies, with his latest being Dunki in 2023. But his success didn't come easy.

Discussing his five-year break, SRK revealed that he had faced significant setbacks with some movie flops. During this period, he learned how to make the best pizza globally. He stopped being a passive listener to stories and wanted to be the storyteller himself. "I made myself a little kitchen, and I started learning how to make pizzas. I learnt perseverance. Because to make the perfect round pizza, you have to first make a million square ones," he shared.

When asked about his dream, Shah Rukh Khan explained that initially, he just wanted to survive in the film industry and have successful projects. However, his perspective evolved, and now he aims to bring technology into the Indian film industry. He dreams of making a film that the entire world appreciates, breaking barriers without being questioned about crossing over. King Khan shared, "I want to make that film which the whole world likes, and then nobody on a big stage like this asks me, why haven't you crossed over? That film should cross me over. That's my dream,"
