Kolkata, July 28 (RDI IBNS): Chennai Express chugged into Kolkata on Saturday and it was a tumultuous sea of crowd that crashed at City Centre New Town to catch a glimpse of King of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan aboard the "Express" to promote his new film that reunites him with Deepika (Padukone) onscreen after the later debut making blockbuster ‘Om Shanti Om’.

Chennai Express chugged into Kolkata on Saturday and it was a tumultuous sea of crowd that crashed at City Centre New Town to catch a glimpse of King of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan aboard the "Express" to promote his new film that reunites him with Deepika (Padukone) onscreen after the later debut making blockbuster ‘Om Shanti Om’.

"Chennai Express is a very funny film with a very sweet layer of romance going on throughout the film,” said Khan for whom close to 1.5 lakh had gathered according to estimates.

Khan promoted the film that has everything to offer for entertainment hungry cine goers.

“Of course as this is a Rohit Shetty film, so there will be action. There are a couple of action sequences in the film. One of them is very intense and others are funny. The film is about family life, parents, grandparents and rituals in a family,” he told reporters at Inox City Centre New Town.

When asked about the experience of working with Deepika for the second time, he said, “Deepika is the epitome of a star. She is tall, modern, has a great sense of dancing and is obviously very pretty. I am very comfortable working with her.”

“Whenever I had a talk with her I told her that the next film we do, we will take her beyond Shantipriya. In this film, she played a simple, small town south Indian girl. There is a huge amount of liability that as an actor Deepika has. I love working with her and hope to do some more films with her,” he said.

“At one time, when we started writing for this film, we thought of taking an actual South Indian actress. Then Rohit (Shetty) mentioned that Deepika is from Bangalore and she knows a bit of South Indian language."

Speaking about his favourite scene in the film, King Khan said, “There is a scene where I and Deepika are posing like husband and wife. I tell her to allow me to sleep beside her as she told everyone that we are married and then she stops me. That scene is my favourite."

"There are sequences in the film, where we sing Hindi songs looking at each other and no one else understands those. There are many such funny sequels which are my favourites.”

Commenting on the brand new lungi look in the movie which he is attempting for the first time, he said, “There was a photo shoot in the village, where the scene revolves that I have to live in a village and I have just one pair of clothes, so I had to wear a lungi. I asked Deepika to try the lungi and so the lungi look happened.”

Commenting on the favourite song of Shahrukh, he said, “All the songs in the film composed by Vishal and Shekhar are wonderful. My favourite among all of them is obviously S.P. Balasubhramanium’s title track, Chennai Express."

" ‘Title’ is one of the favourite songs for me, because that is more ‘Shahrukh Khan’ kind of song which has a lot of romance in it. Deepika’s favourite song is ‘Titli’.”

Speaking on Kolkata, Shahrukh Khan said, “I love coming to Kolkata every time. I would love to settle down here whenever I get time. I belong to this city because the amount of love I get here, no city gives me. I want to thank Kolkata for this.”

Sharing his views on being the ambassador of Bengal, he said, “As a brand Ambassador here I feel that I should take out some time and do many things for this city. After this movie, I will surely come down here and see what I can do for this city."

On being asked about the auction of the costumes of ‘Chennai Express’, he said, “We would like to have a function where the costumes will be auctioned and the money will be donated to the charity. This is a small way by which we can serve the society a little bit."

"My costumes are designed by Karan Johar and Shiraz, while Deepika’s costumes are designed by Manish Malhotra.”

Talking about the stunts in the movie, he said, “The trainers taught me how to do the stunts. Sometimes, the stunts are so dangerous that they tell me not to do this. Just because the heroes do the stunts, doesn’t mean that the stuntman’s doesn’t have any work. They are the ones who make the stunts possible. I can do a lot of stunts and I like doing them.”

“When I go back home and when my son and daughter ask me whether I have done that myself; I don’t want to lie and I want to say, that I have done it,” he said.

Talking about the rising crimes against women, Shahrukh said, “We have to change the concept about how to bring up a child."

"When I was talking to my son about girls, I didn’t ask him about his girlfriends but I said him, ‘Don’t break a girl’s heart, treat her gently and there is no way you can sit and look a crime done on a woman. If you ever do it then you won’t be forgiven by your parents.’ That’s what I say to my son and I believe it myself.”

Commenting on Salman Khan’s and his recent patch up, he said, “The personal relationships that me and Salman share, the complications, issues, love and the discussions that I have, me or Salman, we have never talked about that in public, and we will prefer not to do so.”

Speaking of putting Kolkata on his movies, he said, “You cannot just put a city in a film which is not necessary. If it requires beauty, history, art, that film should be shot in Kolkata. “
