"I think we have a great set of actors. The film is a little more on the real zone. Rahul Dholakia is directing it. There is Mahira Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub. We have really fine actors. I am really impressed by the quality of actors we have in the film and hopefully they will help me improve my performance."
Shah Rukh also answered a question about working with young Alia Bhatt in Gauri Shinde's next, Walk and Talk, and said:
"Alia is not in awe of me. She is beautiful. I have known her since childhood... She is just beautiful."
While Raees and Walk and Talk are keeping SRK busy these days, he says there are other projects too in the pipeline. Addressing the talk that he will be playing the character of a little person in Aanand L Rai's next film, he said:

"Who reported this? If journalists have reported this, it is not true. So I'll tell you when I will do the film. Yes, I am talking to Aanand, Imtiaz and five other directors... I start new films in June or July after I finish last bits of Raees.
