Last year, Hollywood film-maker Brett Ratner expressed a desire to work with Shah Rukh Khan. Known for his films like the Rush Hour series and X-Men: The Last Stand (2006), Ratner has now put SRK among his “favourite actors”.
“My favorite actors ever are John Cazale, Sterling Hayden, Peter Sellers, Timothy Carey, John Cassavetes, and of course Shah Rukh Khan, Robert Deniro and Al Pacino! (sic),” Ratner tweeted on June 8. SRK returned the compliment on June 9, by re-tweeting the trailer of Ratner’s upcoming film, Hercules, saying, “wow…a man with a cause… (sic).”
