“Whenever you have a country that starts shooting and they are not used to making films, you have some teething problems, so I went back to the Ministry and we spoke to them once on the phone and they were so kind,” said Khan. “I think the nicest part is that they want to do it. When you are trying to make films, I think half the battle is won if you just want to do it,” added the Zero actor.
SRK also heaped praises on the beautiful locations of Saudi Arabia and its hospitable people. Furthermore, he went on to disclose the reason for his absence from films for 4 years. The actor said that it was because he wanted to devote some time to his children, mainly to daughter Suhana Khan.
