‘King of Bollywood’ Shah Rukh Khan in a recent interview to a local media reveals his experience working with Pakistani actress Mahira Khan and said that he misses her after wrapping up ‘Raees’.
SRK said, “First I’ll talk professionally. Mahira is a really fine actor. And she’s very different. She’s very quiet. A Hindi film is a world in itself and she’s fortunate to have come in a film like Raees, which is still a little more realistic than the likes of Dilwale or Happy New Year. What’s nice about her is that she’s so unassuming. She’s such a big star but she’s very unassuming on the set and she’s ready to adapt to the situation, which is very interesting,” a local media reported.
“The bigger the star you are, the more nervous you get; I still get very nervous. I hide my nervousness with my flamboyance. But Mahira’s really, really nice as an actor. Personally, she’s really sweet. She got chappals for me. I keep troubling her though. I keep teasing her that ‘you’re from that country’ and you know, ‘don’t mess with us here’ and she’s really sweet and supporting. I miss her,” he added.
SRK also revealed that he is a big fan of Pakistani cricketer turned politician Imran Khan.
Shah Rukh Khan will be seen in an upcoming movie ‘Fan’ then in ‘Raees’ in Eid 2016. He will also start shooting for Gauri Shinde’s next movie starring Alia Bhatt in the lead role; the movie also features Ali Zafar in the pivotal role.
