Rab Ne.. is the only film Shah Rukh is doing this year after the super-successful Om Shanti Om. Rab Ne.., he says, is very special because it marks the directorial comeback of his long time director-producer friend Aditya Chopra; Chopra's last directorial Mohabbatein was released eight years ago.
His first film, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge is one of Hindi cinema's biggest hits and is still running in at Mumbai's Maratha Mandir theatre, where it has completed 600 weeks.
"Both Adi (Aditya Chopra) and I could not believe we have spent more than 13 years together post Dilwale. Sometimes, I feel this happened just yesterday. Time has flown so fast and I have been working continuously till date," says Shah Rukh, who turned 43 on November 2.
He adds, "The promos of Rab Ne.. were to release six days earlier but Adi and Yash Chopraji wanted to release it on my birthday to make it special. So I feel happy and privileged."
