Their chemistry is crackling on and off screen. And their mutual admiration for one another is to be heard, seen and witnessed to be believed. BT catches Don2 co-stars Priyanka Chopra and Shah Rukh Khan in candid confession mode…

Your character Roma in Don2 hates to love him; isn’t that so? PC: I am a cop in Don2, whose mission is to catch Don. But you are right. Though I am supposed to despise him, I feel inexorably drawn to him. There is a strange bond, which I don’t think even Roma (my character) understands. There is intrigue and a latent chemistry in our screen equation.

SRK, you call her a jungli billi in one dialogue. Is she like that? SRK: She is my tame rat. PC: I’m not a rat, and I’m certainly not tame. PC: Please find a better-looking animal to compare me to. SRK: Ok, she is my tame rabbit. Look, I am extremely, extremely, extremely fond of her and I have a huge amount of genuine love and respect for her talent. She is really talented as an actor and I am not saying it because she is sitting here. I like learning from actors who know more than me; Priyanka is one of them. She is one of those actors who knows more than me in her own way. But she is not over-smart. She knows everything; yet there is a naiveté about her that I find endearing and interesting. Sometimes I feel a little bad that I’m treating her so badly in Don2. PC: Shah Rukh, you are just basically patronising, that is a personality trait and you cannot help More >
