NewsMobile fact-checked the post and found the image to be morphed.
We put the image through Reverse Image Search and found the original picture on Yandex, a Russian search engine.

In the original picture, SRK can be seen wearing a plain white T-Shirt.
We then ran another Reverse Image search on the original picture and found it in a blog post titled ‘Shahrukh Khan on the set of Akshay Kumar’s movie Blue’.

We noticed that the watermark of Bollywood Hungama was present on the picture and ran an advance search on Google, which led us to the same picture on the original website.

We also noticed that the mic of Zoom was visible in the picture, so we ran a keyword search on YouTube and found the video was uploaded by Zoom in 2009.

Hence, from the above information, it is clear that a 2009 picture of Shah Rukh Khan was edited to create a false narrative.
