Apart from being a very humble and patient actor, he is also a great sportsman.
Vidya told that ‘Shahrukh used to take full care of what we are doing right or what wrong. There were many girls in the team who were acting for the first time, so they could not get an idea of the light-camera. At that time Shahrukh used to teach with great love. Telling small such technical things that used to improve our performance. He lived on the set just like a coach.
