Superstar Shah Rukh Khan is thankful for being conferred with the 'King of Bollywood' title by Salman Khan, and feels humbled to have gained respect from peers and fans alike after being in the industry all these years.

When asked to comment, Shah Rukh said, "We all are kind to each other. We respect each other. I think what we have achieved (in our career) and I will include myself also in it.. I think... whatever we have earned (name) is due to our hard work. We have been entertaining for many years. We don't disrespect anyone. So all these titles and numbers doesn't really matter. I think we all just hope our next film does well. So if you ask me a question like this I am thankful to anyone who thinks of me like this anywhere in the world. God has been kind to me," he said without taking Salman's name.

He also chose to dodge another question on Salman's Kick.

Talking about his upcoming film Happy New Year, SRK said it has all the ingredients of a Bollywood entertainer.

The trailer of Happy New Year will be unveiled on August 14 and is expected to be a star-studded event.

"Everybody is invited... please come. The trailer is really good... I hope you all like it. We are trying to create an evening... the film is about dance, music, glamour. I am not nervous. I do my best and leave the rest," Shah Rukh said at an event last night here.

"When I go abroad, people tell me Bollywood is about dance and music. We wanted to make an ultimate Bollywood film. I tried to produce a film that has everything in it--romance, drama, action, revenge, sensuality, happiness... it has everything about Bollywood. It is an entertainer," he said.

The first look of the Diwali release will be revealed at a hotel here with the entire cast -- Shah Rukh, Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Sonu Sood, Boman Irani and Vivaan Shah - along with director Farah Khan and composer duo Vishal- Shekhar in attendance.

"The whole team-- Abhishek, Deepika, Sonu, Vivaan, Boman, Jackie, Farah and so many other people they have done their best. This is our best and hopefully you like and enjoy it. One doesn't know what will happen to the film but the agaaz is good so if the start is good then everything will be good," he said.
