The newly released video also features other pivotal characters such as leading lady, Mahira Khan, and supporting actors, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Zeeshan Ayub.

The video demonstrates how SRK was asked to walk in a particular style, take his glasses off in a certain manner, the minuscule gestures and movements that made Shah Rukh Khan essay perfectly, the role of the infamous bootlegger.

Mahira, in the video also speaks up about how Shah Rukh helped her overcome her jitters and said, "He just broke it down with me, got me comfortable, kept doing the lines, improvised with me, saying 'Why don't you do it like this, why don't you do it like that?'. So, yeah, it was amazing."
