Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, may have two decades of experience playing the romantic hero but the actor says that My Name is Khan, where he plays an autistic man mistaken for a terrorist, is the nicest love story of his career.
"My Name is Khan is the nicest love story I have ever worked in. It is the physical and emotional journey, that the two characters Rizwan and Mandira go through to find love. The story is about hope, love and positivity," SRK told reporters after unveiling the first look of the film which releases in February 2010.
My Name is Khan explores the sudden change in the life of the two protagonists, Rizwan and Mandira, played by Bollywood's favourite on-screen couple Shah Rukh and Kajol, but the actor said the film dealt with love not terrorism.
"It's about humanity, love and sacrifice and not religion. The film is a fiction story based against facts of 9/11," he said.
The 44-year-old actor who has also co-produced the film said that Kajol and director Karan Johar supported him in the endeavour to make the "biggest film" of their careers.
"They gave me freedom to make mistakes and improve my performance during the shooting. Karan is an intense director with a sense of humour. I, Kajol and Karan understand each other completely as professionals. We need not say things to each other," said the actor.
