Anushka Sharma, who made her Bollywood debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, says that she used to be scared of talking to the Bollywood Badshaah but now she has become “more comfortable” with the actor.
Anushka, who featured opposite Shah Rukh in several films including Jab Harry Met Sejal and Jab Tak Hai Jaan and will soon be seen in Zero, says she holds her equation with the superstar in high value.
“I think Shah Rukh is definitely somebody who I value a lot in my life. He has been someone who has been extremely kind to me from my very first film. I think as a person he has also changed over the years. I feel my relationship with him has changed because now I’m more comfortable with him in talking to him. I can actually have a conversation with him,” she said.
The actor says as a debutante she would be “too scared” to talk to Shah Rukh. “Anything I wanted to tell him, I’d feel (it is) so unimportant. ‘Why would I share that with him?’ Now I’m so much more comfortable,” she says.
Anushka says, for Shah Rukh, Zero is like his “child”. “I think seeing him go through that process of being passionately involved with this film is so inspiring,” she adds.
Anushka will next be seen in Yash Raj Film Productions’ Sui Dhaaga: Made in India with Varun Dhawan, which is scheduled to release this Friday (September 28).
