Mukesh Chhabra recently opened up about Shah Rukh Khan’s dedication and how he still works hard on his films. The casting director-filmmaker praised Shah Rukh and felt that the more one meets the superstar, the more they fall in love with him.

Speaking to Pinkvilla recently, Mukesh said, “A person who works hard, continuously and with dedication from morning till evening is a star for me. No one can predict how big or popular you will become. The only exception here is Shah Rukh Khan. He is on another level and no one can touch him. Everyone works hard, but very few work harder than he does. And he has been doing it for so many years. He is still in love with acting. Many people come to Bombay to work, inspired by him. He is a common influence for many.”

Mukesh worked as the casting-director for Shah Rukh’s action-thriller Jawan which released last year. He also played a small role in the film. He has earlier collaborated with the star in Chak De! India (2007), Zero (2018) and Jab Harry Met Sejal (2017).

Sharing his experience, Mukesh added, “Those who have spent time with him know this: every time you meet him, he showers you with love. That doesn’t change. Usually, once you start working with an actor and get to know them, things become normal between you. But not with him. The more you meet him, the more you love him, and it keeps growing endlessly. Even after going back home, you’ll find yourself thinking about Shah Rukh Khan.”

Mukesh turned director with the Sushant Singh Rajput starrer Dil Bechara (2020) which was based on the book 'The Fault In Our Stars' by John Green.
