Mumbai: Shreyas Talpade, who played Shah Rukh Khan`s friend in his production ‘Om Shanti Om’, says the superstar left a lasting impression on him.

"During `Om Shanti Om` whatever I saw Shah Rukh doing has left a very lasting impression on me. For me, that was a certain kind of a textbook, not just in terms of production, but also in terms of mounting a particular film, publicity and marketing," Shreyas told reporters Tuesday at the unveiling of the poster of his second Marathi production – ‘Poshter Boys’.

"We went everywhere possible and we did everything possible and Shah Rukh himself was involved in each and every activity. So yes, he has been a huge inspiration in my life, not only as an actor but also as a producer," added the 37-year-old, who played SRK`s on screen friend in the 2007 super hit reincarnation drama, produced under SRK`s Red Chillies Entertainment banner.

Shreyas, who had earlier produced the Marathi film ‘Sanai Chaughade’, will star in another Marathi movie ‘Baji’, in which he will be seen as a superhero.

He has also been part of hit Hindi movies such as ‘Iqbal’, ‘Welcome To Sajjanpur’, ‘Golmaal 3’ and ‘Housefull 2’.
