While talking to a daily, a close source to the actor said, “Shah Rukh had been receiving a lot of negative comments lately. He was upset and hurt as a result. And that is why he has withdrawn. He preferred to lie low instead of hitting back through the micro blogging site. Also, he doesn`t believe in blocking people who post negative comments but he is in a headspace where he doesn`t want any kind of negativity.”

He spoke about love, friends, family and it got really emotional. Most people on the set were dewy-eyed while filming, including the host.”

The episode will be airing on January 1, 2011.
