Recently, Dulquer and Mrunal were clicked by the shutterbugs in Mumbai as they arrived for the success meet of their movie Sita Ramam. Talking to media persons, the two expressed their love for Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan. The Zoya Factor actor said: "I am a huge Shah Rukh sir fan, both on-screen and off-screen. He is a model for us to follow. Shah Rukh sir is one of those, who is very special. I have grown up loving his films, DDLJ is one of my fav films. He is an inspiration. When I had doubts about becoming an actor, I always looked up to him. Subconsciously, I have it in me to behave like Shah Rukh Khan. Comparing me to him is like insulting him. Because there is just one Shah Rukh Khan." Mrunal, on the other hand, revealed that she would listen to King Khan's song while prepping for her role in Sita Ramam.
