Most of the people who don’t know him, would like to know it. Will not understand. I keep telling them that I am not as much interested in making a film with you as I am because I get to learn so much from you.. Means I have not seen such a man. I do that he doesn’t.”
The video continues, when the host asked what qualities he liked about Shah Rukh Khan, Anubhav Sinha Said, “The respect of women or basically the respect of human beings is amazing, he does not know that I have stolen from him. I stole this tameez from him. Somebody will come home, whoever it is, he will go to the bottom, will go to his car, will open the door of the throne, will make him sit, will stand till the cart is gone. And if it’s a woman it’s okay if he’ll put his hand under every step. He’s very polite.”
“And what I love about him is his humble ego. He is very humble and very arrogant at the same time. He knows he is still a middle class boy, at this age and stage of his life where he is Shah Rukh Khan, but he remains a middle class boy who is charming and more. The way he tackles problems, the kind of courage he has. Until I met him, I thought I was the hardest working man in the world, but then I thought that Subha came back after meeting at four o’clock, then after half an hour his call came again. The actor then mimicked Shah Rukh while talking on the call. The director then explained to him “Ach bhi bhi bhi such raha ho hai? kyuki meeting khatam ho gayi na ab sleep jayete hai”. The director concluded by saying that “there is a lot to learn from him”.
