He’s undoubtedly the ultimate romantic hero in B-town and SRK certainly loves his lover-boy image….so do we!
Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone were in confession mode in a recent interview to Zee News. The King of Hearts was happy to know that he got women doe-eyed. ‘Chahe aap 9-10 saal ki ho, jaise Deepika thi jab inhone meri pehli film dekhi thi shayad. Chahe aap uss waqt 50 saal ke ho, chahe 26 saal ki hi, main chahunga har aurat ka har ladki ka har maa beti behen ka main pehla pyar rahu. Mujhe achcha lagta hai.’ And Deepika couldn’t agree more with SRK. Om’s Shanti spoke of her changing rapport with the King Khan: ‘I’m a lot more comfortable. Now I bully him and trouble him. Pehle main bahut sharmaati thi.’ Deepika feels that this is the effect of Shahrukh’s presence – he even gets journalists to love him! And then came this confession from SRK himself: ‘I’m a dangerous boyfriend to have!’
The Chennai Express lead actors were in the studio to talk about their film, but this tête-à-tête went beyond, ranging from personal equations to food. Shahrukh revealed that in an industry where actors follow strict fitness regimes and diets, Deepika is an exception. ‘Itni khoobsurat lagti hai, maine inko na workout kartey hue dekha hai…zarur karti hongi. Lekin yeh mashaallah itna achcha khaati hai, itna achcha khaati hai ki..ki main bataa nahi sakta. Agar abhi hum iss hotel main thehere ho toh 600 logo ke khaane me 70-80 logo ke liye khaana kum pad jayega.’ The belle loves her food as much as she does her hero it seems! She added, ‘I take pride in the fact that I believe he eats well when I’m around, otherwise inka khaane ka koi time nahi hota.’
Wethinks not only does this duo have a crackling onscreen chemistry, but off screen too there’s a tremendous warmth in their relationship.
