Mahira, Nawazuddin will help me improve my skills : SRK

WEB DESK: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan said that the presence of actors as “fine” as Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Pakistani beauty Mahira Khan in “Raees”, would help him “improve” his own performance in the movie.

Talking about the film, SRK told the media on the sidelines of the Times of India Film Awards (TOIFA): “I think we have a great set of actors. The film is a little more on the real zone. Rahul Dholakia is directing it.”

The megastar added: “There is Mahira Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub. We have really fine actors. I am really impressed by the quality of actors we have in the film and hopefully they will help me improve my performance.”

The Dilwale star even has a film with budding actress Alia Bhatt which is yet to be named. It is directed by Gauri Shinde.

Of working with Kapoor and Sons actress, SRK said: “Alia is not in awe of me. She is beautiful. I have known her since childhood… She is just beautiful.”

This year has been busy for SRK on his career front. While his “Fan” is slated to release soon, there are also rumours that he has signed Aanand L. Rai’s next project.

Clearing the air, the 50 year old actor said: “Who reported this? If journalists have reported this, it is not true. So I’ll tell you when I will do the film. Yes, I am talking to Aanand, Imtiaz and five other directors… I start new films in June or July after I finish last bits of ‘Raees’,” he said.
