So, all six of us would sit around him.” The actress added that he always made all of them feel like a team. “He always made us feel like these are my girls,” said Aaliyah.
Recalling an incident, Aaliyah said, “Once he even told one of his bodyguards, this was in the first schedule, 2nd or 3rd day we had met him, we were trying to go into the tent for dinner with Atlee sir and Shah Rukh Khan because for the past 3 days we had done that. So, we were trying to go inside and one of the bodyguards stopped us. But then Shah Rukh sir saw and he said when the girls are around, none of you should be around me. He told the bodyguards when the girls are around, none of you should stop them from coming to me. So, imagine how good we felt. It felt really good. It was heartwarming. He’s just the best.”
