Sharing screen space with Shah Rukh Khan in a film is a dream come true for every actor. Komal Sachdeva recently got an opportunity to work with the Badshah of Bollywood in Dunki.

A few days after Dunki's release, OTTplay exclusively interviewed Komal Sachdeva, who revealed how helpful Shah Rukh was as her co-star.

Recalling the time she had to perform a stunt for Dunki, Komal Sachdeva told OTTplay that Shah Rukh Khan helped her throughout the process.


"At some places, I did take his advice and guidance because he has done so many projects and he has so much experience. I had to do a stunt where I had to fall. I was scared (thinking) that one thing I fall and it looks natural and second that - I don't break my nose. So, I asked him what was the best way to do that. He shared his learnings and guided me through it. It was very helpful," revealed Komal.

The actress further opened up about a scene from Dunki wherein she had to hold Shah Rukh Khan by his arm. 

"So, there's a scene with Shah Rukh where I get scared and hold him by the arm and then I am hiding behind him. I could only do this because he made me comfortable and (said) that this was the demand of the scene and I could hold his arm and hide behind him. The first time I did it I understood that this is what the scene requires. When you are scared in life, if you have somebody next to you, who is a protective figure, you tend to hide behind them. That's your instinctive feeling. And that is what I did. He also said, 'Haan, aaram se pakad lo. Be comfortable'. I think that was great," recalled Sachdeva.
