So, when there's the right time, we are going to do next."
He further added, "Jawan was always made for Shah Rukh Khan, I never had a second thought that who can play it. But from day one, from script to scenes, which schedule will be when the only person I interacted was Vijay sir. He is like a brother to me and we are really serious about what we do in our life. He used to share about his film, and I would share about Jawan to him. He was very advisory, always a backbone to me. Yes, we shared with each other a lot of stuff on Jawan but it was purely made for Shah Rukh Khan sir."
