"Ek photo hi daal do kisi shot mein," he kept urging Karan.
Not one to give up even when his wish has gone way past its fulfilment phase, SRK barged in sportingly at a media meet with Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal and insisted on conducting an interview with the pair...
"Just as a good luck charm," as SRK put it.
On Wednesday afternoon SRK just decided to drop in at the venue of the interview and said, "Even I am part of the family. So I'm joining them to promote the film."
Director Siddharth Malhotra can't get over the magic of the moment. "It is such gestures that make Shahrukh who he is. It is his ability to make people feel special that makes him the superstar and the King."
Siddharth had entered the media meet when he saw an exceptional bustle at the venue. He jokingly asked what the clamour was about.
"SRK aa gaya kya? I asked sarcastically. Imagine my surprise when someone turned around and said that's precisely what has happened and that SRK was doing an interview with Kareena and Arjun for my film."
One now hears that SRK will make his presence felt in all of Karan Johar's films on one way or another.
Says Karan, "Shahrukh is just about the most generous human being I know."
