Shah Rukh, with his trademark charm, expressed his eagerness to work with Mani Ratnam once again. In a playful tone, he shared, “I’m requesting you, I’m begging you, and I’m telling you every time to do a film with me.” To sweeten the deal, he even offered to dance to the iconic ‘Chaiyya Chaiyya’ on top of a plane if the filmmaker agreed.

Amid laughter, Shah Rukh addressed Mani Ratnam’s wife, Suhasini, recalling a past encounter where he suggested she should wake him up with a chant of ‘Shah Rukh, Shah Rukh.’ The audience enjoyed this light-hearted banter between the two stars.

Mani Ratnam, displaying his wit, responded to Shah Rukh’s plane offer with a cheeky comment, saying, “When he buys a plane… I’ll do it.” Shah Rukh, riding high on the success of his recent films, including ‘Pathaan,’ ‘Jawan,’ and ‘Dunki,’ playfully hinted that owning a plane might not be too far off for him.

As the banter continued, Khan serenaded the audience with a snippet from ‘Jiya Jale,’ another memorable track from Dil Se. In a final jest, he thanked Mani Ratnam for the upcoming film, jokingly scheduling his presence on set for March, early morning at 2 am.
