Excerpts from the Interview:

Rajeev Masand: Now, one of your co-stars in Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna is Amitabh Bachchan, with whom you've done three films prior to this one. Of course you've heard the story of a cold war between the two of you.

And there's also a story about you not being part of the Yash Raj banner anymore because of the cold war between you and the Bachchans. What's your take on that?

Shah Rukh Khan: We hate each other and right now we are planning through assassins to kill each other and I've even decided to take on Mr Yash Chopra and destroy all the films and the negatives that he has done.

That is what it is at. And my assassins are all over Mumbai outside Mr Bachchan's house, attempting to take over his house and his films.

Rajeev Masand: We assume that you are amused by these stories.

Shah Rukh Khan: I was amused earlier, I was never irritated, I was never disturbed. Now, I'm not even amused, I mean it's an old and boring story. It's just not there.

I think newspapers and channels should just freshen up some scandalous stories like me having an affair with Abhishek Bachchan would be more interesting

Rajeev Masand: What was the attraction for Don? I mean to star in a film that was part of your childhood? The one that you grew up with?

Shah Rukh Khan: That was absolutely the only reason. It's a part of my childhood. You can ask anyone walking the streets, anyone who is my age and has grown up on Don. It's a 27-year-old movie. Ask anyone in CNN-IBN office, wouldn't they just love the dialogue "Don ko pakadna mushkil hi nahi, namumkin hai (It's not just difficult to catch the Don, it's impossible). I won't say it as well. The film won't be as great either. It's no comparison at all, rather, it's a dream come true. I mean, you start your career with a film called Deewana, where you make an entry in the second half and 16 years later, there you are - saying dialogues mouthed by an actor you saw on screen and wanted to be like. I am Amitabh Bachchan.
