Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone have reunited on the big screen after a long time for this Sidharth Anand directorial. Speaking about working with SRK, Deepika had shared, “Well, it’s always been incredible. I think what I feel for him I don’t think I’ll ever be able to express in words. For me, my relationship with him is it’s a feeling, it’s an emotion and it’s just lots of love and it’s unconditional. I think we’ve been very lucky to have had the opportunity to work on some incredible movies starting with Om Shanti Om. I started my career with him. And we’ve had the opportunity to do different kinds of movies together. And to actually see both of us in this space was very exciting for me and I’m sure it was for him as well.”
