Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and all other superstars can surely intimidate a comparatively lesser experienced actor or actress.

It seemed like MARGARITA WITH A STRAW actress Sayani Gupta, who has admitted to being a Jabra fan of Shah Rukh Khan in an interview, would've gone through the phase, but rather her experience is much more delightful to hear about!

Ask Sayani if she was intimidated by Shah Rukh Khan while shooting FAN and she said, “No, I wasn't actually. I don't really get intimidated by anything unless there's a huge hippopotamus in front of me, but I was really excited.”

Narrating her experience, Sayani said, “It was 4th of December when it was my first day of shoot at the YRF studios. I went in my costume and was waiting around one corner for him (Shah Rukh Khan). There was another scene going on, which is when I saw him (SRK) for the first time. He was just hanging around with everybody there. Then Maneesh (Sharma, director) called me and asked me to rehearse my scene (with SRK). I was expecting Maneesh would come and introduce us, but that didn't happen. Maneesh asked me if I remember my lines and I replied in affirmation. So we (Shah Rukh Khan and I) started shooting without any introduction. After we did the rehearsal, he (SRK) turned to me and said, ‘Oh baby, I don't even know your name,' and hugged me. That was really special. After that, the ice was broken and he was normal.”

Unlike what is shown of Aryan Khanna, Sayani recollects, “He's such a cool guy who doesn't behave like a star. He's very humble, loving, extremely warm and keeps hugging you all the time.”

What's more? When visiting ‘Mannat' in Mumbai for the first time with her cousins, little did Sayani know that she would shoot in the very same place.

Recalling her experience, the actress said, "It's one of those things people do when they come to Bombay. Go see 'Mannat'. Ages ago, during my first visit to Mumbai, my cousins had taken me to Bandstand and shown me the temple of love. Later I have had to take my friends who have insisted on seeing the temple and get photographed in front of Mannat. It's a strange fetish people have. However, never did I think I would shoot inside Mannat some day! I was climbing up the front stairs and literally counting my steps. It's really quite stunning. Whatever little we saw looked like a museum-cum-heritage hotel. I was almost going gaga over some of the books that were kept. Again like many other special experiences through the journey of FAN, this was one of them!"

Hearts for this 'aww'esomeness!
