The Kuch Kuch Hota Hai actor had revealed to the Times Of India that, "If I meet him, I will give him a smile. I am sure I will be feeling quite nervous at first. But I won't initiate (a conversation). I will wait for him to say - 'My name is Shah Rukh Khan'. Then I will also say - 'My name is Shahrukh Khan too'. I would love to see his reaction. I am sure by that time he will know me." We would definitely like to know his reaction to his namesake joining his Veer Zaara co-star's team.
