Despite his two average performing movies like Dilwale and Fan, SRK continues to work with same zeal and vigor. Being united with Imtiaz Ali for the first time having Anushka Sharma playing opposite to him, he had his own terms and conditions from the Tamaasha director.
The Raees actor said that he had known the director from several years since he directed his first movie. He said he likes his films and the way he shoots with great stories. He said he did like the film Jab We Met with Kareena Kapoor Khan as Imtiaz had come to his place to share the story despite him not being the part of the film. King Khan said that he had always discussed the films with him and thus respects him as a creative person.
The collaboration between the two worked out when the director told him that he has a film for SRK as well. However, SRK had just one condition; he needed a happy movie since he is passing in the same zone. So, Imtiaz embarked with a movie having a nice language of love and it happens to be a love story but he has to keep his age into consideration. It is not a young upbeat love story as Imtiaz is having a very keen take on love.
