To issi ki izzat ke liye chale jaana... Mujhe ganja hone ka ya dekhne ka mauka mile ya na mile, kya pata (I even went bald for you all. At least, honour that and watch the film in theatres. You may or may not get another chance to see me bald). It is a 2 hour and 45-minute film, I hope you enjoy all that we have dealt with in the film," Shah Rukh had said.
