Shah Rukh Khan will soon be witnessed in a never-before-seen avatar as that of a dwarf aka Bauua Singh, in Aanand L Rai’s Zero. Alongside Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma, talking about his female co-actors being fond of him, here’s some excerpts:
Our King Khan has always been defines as the King of Romance as well, however, while in reality SRK is quite shy, he is still every bit of a gentleman one can make goals from. Moreover, his co-stars be it female or male have always expressed the interesting way of Shah Rukh giving them screen space and encouraging them to shine alongside him.
Talking about this grand gesture from the superstar, Shah Rukh spills the beans and responds to DNA, stating, “I find that strange because, for me, it’s a natural progression of a co-actor who is working with me. I’m nobody to give anyone any kind of an upper hand in the film. I just want, as an actor, to be able to give my co-actor space where he/she also shines. And only then together we will shine.”
Talking about how he was given the same opportunities to shine through while working with some great actors and actresses, he reiterated, “I think it’s also my experience. When I joined the industry, I worked with Sridevi, Madhuri Dixit, Juhi Chawla. These three were the biggest stars this country has ever seen. I remember, the first time I acted with Juhi, after a scene, she turned around and said, ‘I love working with you, it’s exciting and fun.’ For a big star like her to say that to me, who was not even half as good as she was in the films, was a huge thing. One day when Madhuri and I were shooting, her hairdresser came and said, ‘Madhuri ek minute aana chahti hai’. I was like, ‘Haan haan, tell her to come.’ Then she said, ‘Nahin nahin, woh batana nahin chahti. Woh aapko dance karte hue dekhna chahti hai. She loves the way you dance.’ Sridevi used to give me a hug after finishing her shoot. So, all of them have been nice to me and I’ve worked with some of the best actors. Rishi Kapoor saab, Naseeruddin Shah saab, Amrish Puriji… the biggest of stars were so kind to me. They never pointed out any of my weaknesses in a negative way. They helped me out with the scenes in their own way. They didn’t sit me down ki ‘aisa karna hai’, ya ‘waisa karna hai’. And then, I became a star because of how they were to me. So, for me, that learning curve goes to everyone who is new to me now.”
Going back to his conversation about how much he adores his female co-actors,Zero he states, “Katrina and Anushka are new to me, in terms of I’ve worked many more years. So, it’s not about them being girls only, it’s about them being my co-actors. And if I don’t give it to them, perhaps they will not be able to give it back to me. I genuinely believe that. I think I’m nice to my heroines only because they make me look good. It’s as simple as that.”
