A big thank you to Shahrukh Khan, all the partners and each of the amazing collaborators for all the love and support. And finally, Ek Tha Raja is my biggest gift to the community and my fans. A big shout out to every single person who believed in me and never gave up!"

I've revised the entire show format and I'm experimenting with never seen before elements which is going to be a major surprise element for all of my fans. This tour has been a long-standing mission on my wishlist and I'm eagerly looking to make the most out of it."
