In the print, which looks like a metal cast of the actor, SRK is standing in his signature step with his arms wide open.
    
"Even the folds in the shirt and trousers are captured in such detail... And if I may add the dimples too," he added.
    
Overwhelmed by his teams' gesture, Shah Rukh Khan praised the efforts of his team and said the statue depicts what he as an actor has done for all these years.
“It’s the first 3D printed life-size model done by Redchillies VFX and Autodesk team. It is overwhelming how technology has gone forward. I am grateful to be a part of this amazing technology," SRK said.

"This is outstanding and I am dying to show it to my kids. It's silver and shiny statue of mine in my classic pose. I want to thank Keitan, Harry, Red Chillies VFX team and Autodesk team who have worked on it. It’s the figure of work I have done for all these years,” he added.
