I re­ally adore your style of film­mak­ing. Were you tempted to use the typ­i­cal ‘Shah-Rukh-Khan-ness’ that the au­di­ence has been used to for 25 years in your re­cent film JabHar­ryMetSe­jal ? — Si­enna Roy (Chennai)

I’ve seen many of his films. I ad­mire him both as a per­son and the ac­tor that he is. I was very much aware of the typ­i­cal Shah-Rukh-Khan-ness when I went to shoot. But when I was work­ing, I re­al­ized that this ‘Shah-Rukh-Khan-ness’ that ev­ery­body is head over heels is a by-prod­uct of Shah Rukh it­self and it’s un­nec­es­sar­ily stupid to tell him to not be him­self. You have given a great per­for­mance in In­duSarkar and to my knowl­edge, you also hold a de­gree in Jour­nal­ism & Mass Com­mu­ni­ca­tion, do you look at writ­ing (scripts) as an op­tion in the fu­ture? — Chris­tine Per­era (Goa)

Peo­ple do sug­gest to me to write at times, in terms of the un­der­stand­ing I por­tray when it comes to my char­ac­ters. I don’t know, maybe I will some­time in the fu­ture. But it’s not re­ally on my mind right now, So I haven’t thought about it. I am best at act­ing and I think that’s my big­gest strength right now and I should stick to that for a while.
