He is considered Bollywood's king of romance, but superstar Shah Rukh Khan says he was never keen on featuring in romantic sagas until filmmaker Yash Chopra convinced him.

"I was so anti doing love stories because I thought I am not good with them. I remember Yashji tell me, till you love, nobody will love you back. So true," tweeted Shah Rukh who did grey roles in the beginning of his career.

Shah Rukh, who started his tryst with showbiz as an army man in TV show "Fauji", made his Bollywood debut with a romantic movie titled "Deewana(1992)".

His first movie with Yash Chopra was the 1993 film "Darr", in which he played an obsessed lover. Thereafter, under the Yash Raj Films banner, Shah Rukh went on to do films like "Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge" (1995), "Dil To Pagal Hai" (1997), "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai" (1998), "Mohabbatein" (2000), "Veer-Zaara" (2004), "Om Shanti Om" (2007), and "Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi" (2008) -- all of which cemented his loverboy image on the big screen.

Now, he has dabbled in romance yet again for "Jab Tak Hai Jaan", Chopra's last directorial venture. He has shared screen space with Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma in the movie, set to release on Diwali Nov 13.
