New Delhi, May 10 (IANS) Popular television actors Gauri Pradhan and Hiten Tejwani can't stop raving about Shah Rukh Khan ever since they shot for a special episode of 'Kya Aap Paanchvi Paas Se Tez Hain' hosted by the Bollywood superstar.

'Fabulous!' is how Gauri, who plays Nandini in 'Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi', describes her experience of being with King Khan.

Parul Chauhan and Sarah Khan of 'Sapna Babul Ka...Bidaai' also took part in the same episode, which will be telecast on STAR Plus Sunday. Both said they had goose bumps after seeing him.

'He (Shah Rukh) made us so comfortable on the sets. He even arranged a mock shoot for us so that we would be able to shoot for the show conveniently,' Gauri told IANS on phone from Mumbai.

'Shah Rukh is very enthusiastic and energetic and he is so friendly that we didn't even feel that we were shooting with a star like him,' she said.

The programme, formatted on the US game show 'Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader', features adult contestants facing questions picked directly from school textbooks.

Parul, who plays Ragini in 'Sapna Baabul Ka...', gushed with excitement when asked about her stint on the show. She is an ardent fan of the superstar and admits having seen all his movies.

'When I saw Shah Rukh, it seemed that my life had stopped for a split second. I kept looking at him until he came and hugged us (Sarah and me),' she said.

She went on to explain how Shah Rukh humbly allowed Sarah and herself to kiss 'the cute dimples on his cheeks'. 'We danced with him on 'Mahi Ve' and he also let us sing the title track of our show. It was the most memorable day of my life,' Parul said.

Sarah, who plays Parul's sister on their serial, said: 'It was a very nice experience meeting him. We chatted a lot together.'

Gauri's husband Hiten, also of 'Kyunkii...' fame, says they were slightly sceptical about being on the show earlier.

'I really enjoyed myself on the show but the fact that we would be facing questions that we studied almost 25-30 years ago made us a little unsure about being there,' he said.

He said the five kids on the show are really smart and helpful. About the show, he said: 'One might be knowing all the answers. But when you face the camera, you tend to forget.'

But Hiten was happy that he and Gauri could answer most questions posed to them.
