Star India is very glad on Shah Rukh Khan's three day old Kaun Banega Crorepati. On the responses Shah Rukh Khan has received, he says, “Most of those who wrote to me said only good things.

They liked my sense of humour. The kids want me to do the English rap of the song.They can’t believe that I can say or sing it. I am still trying to impress them and I hope to in another 10 years.”

Here is a cross section ofopinions on SRk's new guise.

The best part was that Shah Rukh Khan was himself. I have received an overwhelming positive response from the media and friends.

We had gone all out to promote the show to make it perfect and Shah Rukh just added to it. He has amazing energy and connected unbelievably with the contestants and audience.

The entire mix of him in a song, then giving a massage to the contestants or jumping off the seat in his inimitable style touched people. Shah Rukh has revealed on his blog that he was nervous. But he is hard working and committed to outdoing himself.

The stakes were very high but after the initial response, we know that we are on to a good thing.

Ganesh Hegde on the rap song Concept:
It was mine, though the idea to do a music video was Shah Rukh’s.

I decide what I want to dothe choreography the costumes, the look, , music, just about everything. The idea was to present Shah Rukh in a way that one have never seen before. I had done his Main Hoon Don number.

We shot over four days, 10 hours a day at Film City and Filmistan.

Costumes and look:
I put his clothes together, right from the SRK locket he wears, cargo pants, hats, doctor sleeve shirts, everything. He’s looking fabulous in the KBC video, at least 10 years younger, very cool and funky It’s a . new Shah Rukh Khan.

Bluffmaster rip-off:
No, the idea was to do a Hindi rap song with many often-asked questions.
