Shahrukh Khan in chennai express

He likes to do his own stunts, but superstar Shah Rukh Khan has clarified that actors doing their own such acts doesn't mean they are depriving stuntsmen of their chance to display their skills.

"They are the ones who make it happen... they are the ones who teach us... they have the most important jobs when it comes to action," Shah Rukh told reporters during the promotion of his forthcoming action movie "Chennai Express" here.

"They tell us what to do. Some of the times they tell me, 'Shah Rukh bhai, you don't do this one.' Sometimes it's a choice... can I do it as gracefully as the other person? So, they assist me... if it's safe, then they let me do it. Because heroes do their own stunts, that doesn't mean we are taking the job away from stunt doubles and actions," said the 47-year-old.

Directed by Rohit Shetty, "Chennai Express" is slated for an Aug 9 release.

The actor had sustained a shoulder injury during the shooting of "Chennai Express" and despite the risks involved, he admitted that performing his own stunts keeps him going.

"I like doing my stunts... I feel I haven't worked if I haven't been doing my stunts. I am very good in jumps and somersaults. I can do a lot of stunts," said the father of two - Aryan and Suhana.

He added that when he goes back home, he doesn't want to lie about the daredevil scenes in his movies.

"When my son and daughter ask me, you did that yourself, I don't want to lie. I want to say, yes, I did it myself. I feel proud. It keeps you going," said SRK who has teamed up with Deepika Padukone in it.
