I work because.” At the moment only young girls are working.
He said, “I’m sorry, I can’t ask her to grow up. When Alia asks me, ‘Can I do a film?’, I can’t say, ‘No, grow up first. Be’.” .’…”
Afterwards, Shah Rukh Khan said, “…You can’t be that kind of person. I don’t tell people that. So they say, ‘Oh, he works with girls half his age.’ But she’s the one doing the work, so I can’t send her home, break her heart, or ask the director to cast her based on age and ignore her talent. This can’t happen, I can’t do this. That will happen too, I’ll just have to work with them.”
