Actor Vidya Balan says she is in awe of Raj, the character played by actor Shah Rukh Khan in Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (1995), and wants to do a romantic film with him. “I think every woman wants a Raj and that is why I have always wanted to work with Shah Rukh Khan. Whenever we work together, I would like the film to be a relationship story. He is the ultimate romantic hero,” she says, adding, “When one thinks of romance, the foremost names that come to my mind are Rajesh Khanna and Shah Rukh Khan.”
Balan, who has given hits like Paa, The Dirty Picture and Kahaani in the recent past, has never worked with any of the three Khans of Bollywood. She says that she would like to work with all of them. “I think all three Khans — Shah Rukh, Aamir, Salman — have their own individual styles. I would like to work with all of them. But I must say, hats off to Aamir for his TV show, Satyamev Jayate. I think only he could have done this,” says Vidya. “I would love to pair with Abhishek (Bachchan). Also, I would like to work with Hritik (Roshan) because I haven’t worked with him before, I am very greedy, I want to work with all good actors and directors,” she says.
