I work only to make you happy: Shah Rukh Khan


Asked about his expectation from the film, the 'Badshah of Bollywood' said, "Everytime I release a film, I am asked the same question and I answer the same. My expectation is that everybody will like it."

"I work only so that I can make you happy. I can entertain you, I'm able to fulfil some kind of an emotional vacuum. My films are about making people happy," the 'King Khan' told reporters on the sidelines of his team Kolkata Knight Riders's conditioning camp at CC&FC ground here today.

Drawing parallels with cricket, Shah Rukh said they have a great team in Karan and Kajol which is like having the ace batsmen duo of Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly together in a side.

"Karan Johar, Kajol are fantastic members of the team. It's like having Sachin and Sourav in your squad. Those two are the ones who have really worked hard. I hope everybody likes the film," Shah Rukh said.

Set in the backdrop of 9/11 terror attacks, the movie has Shah Rukh suffering from the Asperger syndrome, a form of autism that affects social interaction abilities.

"I am playing a character who has a disorder known as Asperger. The movie is about humanity and love and what a person do for love.
"It will show the strength people can have, even if they don't have an ordinary life like all of us have. When they can do, you should thank Allah that God has given us such a good life," Shah Rukh said.

Later in the day, Shah Rukh met industrialist Ashok Todi and his daughter Priyanka, whose husband Rizwanur Rahman died in mysterious circumstances that triggered a controversy.

Incidentally, in 'My Name Is Khan', Shah Rukh's character's name is Rizwan who marries Mandira (Kajol) and the duo gets separated after post-9/11 attacks.
