In an interview with a leading daily, Sanjay Leela Bhansali said that he’s a filmmaker and SRK is the biggest star who is loved by the millions. He added that the ‘Baadshah of Bollywood’ made Devdas for him and he made Devdas for Shah Rukh. He also added that SRK is special to him and so he and Khan are and always will be good friends.
