Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who has been doing hardcore stunts for his film "Don 2: The King Is Back", says it's only the conviction of his fans that keeps him going. The actor says he did have initial jitters to jump off a 300-foot building.
"Honestly yes, it was very scary and any normal person would get jitters. We all had body double but Farhan wanted me to do this specific fall myself. I had to jump from a building and when I was standing on the edge I had only two thoughts that crossed my mind," Shah Rukh told reporters here at a conference Monday.
Releasing Friday, the film directed by Farhan Akhtar also stars Priyanka Chopra, Boman Irani, Lara Dutta, and Kunal Kapoor.
"Firstly that my audience believes that I can fly, so I also believe I can. Secondly, why am I doing this and not some romantic film? I coaxed Farhan to do it on my behalf also but I actually forgot that he had skydived some 99 times and has no fear of such stunts," said Shah Rukh.
"Don 2: The King Is Back" is the sequel to 2006 film "Don: The Chase Begins", which is a remake of Amitabh Bachchan-starrer 1978 film "Don".
