Mumbai: Shah Rukh Khan, who is known as the King of Romance, says he loved doing action every bit in his upcoming film 'Chennai Express'.
'Chennai Express' is an action-comedy that stars Khan and Deepika Padukone in lead roles.
"I think I can do action a lot better than romance. He has a fantastic team of almost 200 people, who all have worked really hard," SRK told reporters here at the first look launch of 'Chennai Express'.
It is for the first time that SRK has teamed up with Rohit and the actor is all praise for the director.
"Rohit is a fantastic director. The story that Rohit narrates initially turns out far more better on celluloid. His work speaks volumes. I had done a lot of intense roles and really wanted to do an action comedy and I feel 'Chennai Express' was the perfect film," SRK said.
Rohit is often criticised for his over the top action content in his movies to which SRK said, "Earlier I used to think the same but not now. I loved working with him."
