He may not be as fond of ro­man­tic films as he is of other gen­res, but ac­tor

Shah Rukh Khan (above) now watches love sto­ries for his daugh­ter Suhana’s (17) sake. SRK says that con­trary to what some might think, he doesn’t dis­like the genre.

“It’s not that I don’t like love sto­ries. But the kind of per­son I am, I en­joy com­edy and ac­tion [more]. I like love sto­ries a lot, too. Be­cause of my daugh­ter now, I see a lot of love sto­ries and I find them beau­ti­ful,” SRK says.

Known as the King of Ro­mance, SRK has won hearts with his films such as Dil­wale Dul­ha­nia Le Jayenge (1995). Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1997) Dil Toh Paa­gal Hai (1997). Far from fad­ing, his charm has just be­come more en­dear­ing over the years. So much so, that di­rec­tor Im­tiaz Ali com­pli­mented him on his style of ro­mance in his up­com­ing film, Jab Harry met Se­jal.

“Dur­ing the filming of a song, the most touch­ing mo­ment was when Im­tiaz came to me and said, ‘aap abhi bhi pyaar waisa he karte ho jaise aapne shu­ruat ki thi’...”, says SRK. “By some chance, some of the love sto­ries that I’ve been a part of, have done so well, peo­ple have loved them for years. I love do­ing ro­man­tic sto­ries,” he adds.

The 51-year-old ac­tor cred­ited Im­tiaz and co-star Anushka Sharma for help­ing him cre­ate beau­ti­ful mo­ments on screen. “I am for­tu­nate to have a di­rec­tor like Im­tiaz and a friend like Anushka Sharma be­cause I am shy. It helps to open up. (And then) you have mu­sic di­rec­tors and lyri­cist who are giv­ing it so much more than per­haps I can give,” he says.
