“Shah Rukh only got a wristwatch for acting in my film at the time because by the end of it, I had nothing left in hand. Now, he is the brand ambassador for a watch brand. I am glad that he got the Hindi rights of ‘Hey Ram’ from Bharat bhai (co-producer Bharat Shah). He should have some memory of the film as he gave his friendship and service for it,” he said.
