Alia Bhatt: Shah Rukh Khan is magic

Alia Bhatt, who is currently shooting for Gauri Shinde’s next, ‘Dear Zindagi’ is going gaga over Shah Rukh Khan, who shares screen space with the actress.

Praising Shah Rukh and his personality, Alia says, “Shah Rukh is magic… his words, his persona, his eyes! When he looks into the camera, he is such a delight to work with!” Also speaking about how supportive the actor is on sets, the actress claims, “He has tremendous regard for everyone’s work. He doesn’t let the fact that he is Shah Rukh Khan weigh him or others down. He doesn’t let anyone feel unimportant. Everyone on the sets is equally important for him… be it a technician or a co-star.”

While a few media reports suggested that Alia and Shah Rukh’s age difference might prove to be a hindrance in the film, Alia says she didn’t think about it at all. “ Not for a minute, did I feel Shah Rukh was older. We worked like friends. But when he spoke, I felt very young in front of him. He is so knowledgeable. He knows so much more than me. He makes every anecdote, every incident from his life sound so interesting. I just loved to sit and chat with him between shots. It was absolutely amazing.”
