Ranveer Singh was discussing his several identities in various settings after filmmaker Karan Johar told him that he had multiple personalities inside him. He was then informed that Shah Rukh Khan had had the same treatment. "How are they?" Javed Akhtar once inquired about Shah Rukh Khan to his wife Gauri Khan.

On hearing this, Singh was all praise for Khan. He told Film Companion that SRK is pure excellence. Without a doubt, Shah Rukh Khan is an absolute pioneer in Indian entertainment, and there's a reason he's king. In his presence, he was kidding the other day that he was telling a third person that Shah Rukh won't admit it, but he created the mall where other actors run their tiny businesses. That is the truth, and Singh called King Khan a pioneer who has contributed greatly to Indian entertainment. He produced award events, live performances, advertisements, and film promotions; the standard was set by him.

The Simmba star went on to say that Shah Rukh is the original gangster, and he still acts like one on occasion. He's the best gangster there is, and Singh loves him and holds him in the highest regard. He can't wait to see Khan again on the big screen.

On January 25, 2023, Shah Rukh Khan starrer Pathaan will be released in theatres. John Abraham and Deepika Padukone also appear in Siddharth Anand's espionage thriller. The superstar also has Rajkumar Hirani's Dunki, which will be released on December 23, 2023. The film features Taapsee Pannu as the female lead.

Meanwhile, Ranveer will be featured in Jayeshbhai Jordaar, directed by debutant Divyang Thakkar. The film, produced by Maneesh Sharma under Yash Raj Films, will be released on Friday. The actor also recently announced the release date of the Rohit Shetty directorial Cirkus, which will be a Christmas release this year.
