By Faisal Saif, Mumbai, December 13, 2012 (Washington Bangla Radio): "A star is a star because of his relationships, not his stardom. Shah Rukh Khan is the biggest star ever," says young turk Sachiin Joshi on his friend SRK coming to the premiere of Jackpot though late, and spending over an hour with him to be part of Sachiin's moment of glory.

"I have asked Sachiin to act in my film, but he wanted to work on his own independent films and I respect that decision," said Shah Rukh, admitting that since he missed the Jackpot premiere due to ill health, he would like to watch the film at Mannat. "if director Kaizad Gustad is ok with it." Kaizad was only too delighted to oblige.
