Shahrukh Khan, who has been part of multi-starrers like Dilwale, Happy New Year, Om Shanti Om and Kabhie Khushi Kabhi Gham, says, "There are so many characters - from dadi to nana/nani in certain popular films I played - blockbusters/happy go lucky ones which demand such a (ensemble) cast.''
SRK further added, ''There is no special reason. And as an actor I can't play two roles. Why (even) for an artistic film like Chak de there was an ensemble cast. It had 25 actors."
Talking about the success of Dilwale, Shahrukh Khan told, "It has a mix of everything - SRK brand, story, film."
Dilwale was released on 18th December along with Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone's Bajirao Mastani. Despite the clash, Shahrukh's film got a very good opening at the box office.
