Rituraj Singh had earlier said that he and Shah Rukh Khan were “thick buddies”. Speaking to Indian Express, the actor had stated, “We used to discuss many things about life. At that age, you are just filled up with everyday stuff and there is an everyday high. We used to rehearse together and play football, among other things. Somewhere down the line, he got the feeling that acting is something that his life is all about and thank God it happened, or else, we wouldn’t have had a magnet of a miraculous star today.”

Rituraj Singh also added how Shah Rukh Khan pushed him to move to Mumbai for work. He had said, “We could fit into each other’s clothes because of the same body structure. We were real thick buddies, and those were the best days of my life. I came to Mumbai to act at his insistence. He [SRK] would come to Delhi and tell me, ‘What are you doing here? Come, let’s go to Mumbai. You’re such a good actor.’”

Apart from TV and films, Rituraj Singh also worked in a number of web series including Bandish Bandits, Made in Heaven, and Indian Police Force.
