He is very sweet; I can discuss with him… He is a gentleman; I really had a good time with Shah Rukh sir.
In an interview with PTI, Vijay even called Shah Rukh as a gentleman, “He will never show that I am in the industry for so many years and I am the superstar. Like, how I work with my co-actors, I could discuss (scenes) with him the same way.
