During the chat, he revealed, he feels too old to do romantic mocies. He admitted, “I don’t want to sound strange but I don’t remember when was the last time when I played Rahul. I only remember, ‘Rahul, naam toh suna hoga.’ So, I don’t miss roles/characters. Also, I think I am too old to do romantic films now. It is awkward at times. I remember, many years ago, I was working in a film and the lady opposite me was way younger than me. It was awkward to do a romantic scene with her. I was a little shy. But then you are an actor. I have to imagine that I am her age. Maybe characters like Rahul or Raj are for the younger ones to do,” he said, thanking Aditya Chopra and Karan Johar for offering him “these phenomenal characters.”   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) “When I joined films, I never thought I would be known by the names of the character. There is a part of me in them. And there is a lot of me in Pathaan. I feel like a Pathaan,” he added. The hugely anticipated Pathaan, which is part of Aditya Chopra’s spy universe, has the biggest superstars of the country Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, John Abraham.
