Mathura [India], Jan 24 [ANI]: Love him or hate him, one just cannot ignore Shah Rukh Khan! But, people on the set of his upcoming movie 'Raees,' never used to talk to him much. But what was the reason behind it? During an interview with ANI, while travelling from Mumbai to Delhi by train, the 51-year-old actor shared that it was because of the kohled-eyes he had for his character, people used to keep a bit distance. "People on 'Raees' set, never used to talk to me much. I felt quite awkward. Normally people, on the set of other films, speak to me, spend time with me; but here, all used to leave me alone. Initially I felt, all are very serious and thinking about the film all the time. Later I got to know, it was because of my kohled-eyes, people used to keep a bit distance," he said. May be, people were a bit terrified of the seriousness SRK's on-screen avatar. Further, the 'Dilwale' actor explained that to keep up the dignity of the movie, which is very earthy by nature, the makers chose train as a promotional prop. "One thing we keep in mind before a film's release is that people get to understand about the movie, through its promotional activities. 'Raees' is an earthy movie. To keep up the dignity of the movie, this step is taken. Moreover, I did not travel in the Indian Railways for years now. So both the things connected well," he said. Presently, SRK has reached his hometown Delhi, where thousands of fans have gathered at Hazrat Nizamuddin railway station to get a glimpse of their favourite star. The Rahul Dholakia directed flick, which also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Mahira Khan, is all set to hit the theatres on January 25. (ANI)
