Maneesh, who is excited with SRK's new-look, told The Times of India that they will keep his looks under wraps.

"We are attempting a never-seen before look for Shah Rukh which will be both challenging for us and exciting for the viewer. Understandably, this will be kept under wraps till the first look of the film is revealed."
