Mumbai: Actor-producer Saif Ali says that he always "loved working" with Shah Rukh Khan and he has a lot of respect for the superstar.
According to reports, the 44-year-old previously said that he would prefer to play the lead in his own productions rather than play second fiddle to a big star name.
But Saif says that he doesn't have any harsh feeling for Shah Rukh.
"...I have loved working with SRK whenever I have... Filmfare awards hosting...'Kal Ho Na Ho'... temptations tours... Seagrams ad!!!!... he is an amazing guy... he was also one of the few people at my wedding from the industry... I look up to him and he had influenced a lot of my thoughts on set...
"What I meant was I don't see myself doing a film with him unless I have a really interesting role... and most of the films he does revolve around him... and rightly so!!!," the "Happy Ending" actor said in a statement.
Saif also says that he is annoyed with the reports and said that King Khan's contribution to Bollywood is invaluable.
"I'm upset with the reports about SRK. I have a lot of respect for him... I have worked with him and I know what his contribution is... invaluable!!," he added.
