“I always felt he is a very basic Delhi boy. Whenever I saw him in those valleys of Switzerland, I felt ‘Oh Delhiboy wahan tak pahuch gaya’ (the Delhi boy has achieved great heights).” “I never felt he didn’t belong there.”That is the reason why I think he has a great connect in our country because he represents a basic middle class boy who has achieved it,” Aanand told PTI when asked how does he see this transformation of the actor.
The movie reunites the cast of “Jab Tak Hai Jaan” with SRK, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif featuring in the film. For the first time, Aanand has teamed up with a star like Shah Rukh. Asked if the stakes have become higher, the 46-year-old director says, “There were bright chances.” He is, however, relieved to have SRK on board.”Shah Rukh makes me feel so comfortable and makes you feel like he is the most obedient actor you have ever worked with. I have found a friend, a big brother in him.” “I am enjoying the process and he is letting me fly,” he says.As of now, Aanand is gearing up for the Christmas release of the film which, he says, is “shaping up great” and is a “lifetime of experiences”.
