Shah Rukh Khan had a hilarious comeback on a Twitter post from Abhishek Bachchan on Monday. Known for his sense of humor, Shah Rukh turned Abhishek’s Monday motivation post on its head with a funny yet self-critical response, that’s winning the internet.

Shah Rukh made a witty yet guilty admission on the same, writing, “Thanks baby. Got this. Now please motivate me to work on time too! LOL.” The 53-year-old is infamous for his odd working hours. He is said to have a tumultuous schedule and is known to play fast and loose with his daily routine.
Shah Rukh Khan himself admitted that he prefers to work at night rather than day-time. Pointing to his Bollywood colleague Akshay Kumar’s discipline, he said, “By the time I start working, he is packing up and going home. So he can put in more hours of work. I’m a nocturnal person. Not many people are fond of shooting at night like me.”
Thanks baby. Got this. Now please motivate me to Work On Time too!! https://t.co/9qejCH9tIx

While Shah Rukh’s reply to Abhishek’s post is obviously a friendly banter, the post does hint at how honest and self-critical he is, despite achieving everything that he has in his life. Responding to Shah Rukh’s comment, Abhishek further wrote, “Shah, you make your own time.”
Shah Rukh and Abhishek have worked in a couple of films together — Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006) and Happy New Year (2014). Shah Rukh is still to announce his next project, however, there are rumors that he will shoot for Farhan Akhtar’s Don 3 next.
