Mumbai: Shah Rukh Khan, who has achieved great stardom and has given some critically acclaimed performances, wants the star and the actor in him to coexist.
Last week, when the 49-year-old star celebrated eight years of one of his most loved films,"Chak De! India", many Bollywood celebrities took to Twitter to appreciate his performance as Kabir Khan in the film.
Filmmaker Hansal Mehta wrote, "8 years of #ChakDeIndia is a reminder to @iamsrk that he is a fine actor and we need to see the actor challenge the star more often."
Replying to him, Khan said that the star and the actor in him are both special and he wants them to live together.
"@mehtahansal why challenge, the star sir, let him coexist with the actor. They both are a part of me.... I kinda like them equally," he tweeted.
Even though King Khan took the tweet sportingly, some of his fans ended up reacting to it negatively.
The "Shahid" director then took to Twitter again to clear things up.
"Many fans of @iamsrk have taken umbrage to my tweet. I'm as much a fan as them. But I miss him doing more characters like #ChakDeIndia," he tweeted.
