Despite running a fever, 44-year-old Shah Rukh Khan, who is the new face of Pepsodent toothpaste, completed the advertisement shoot without any complaints.   

Without a break, Khan kept coming to the Filmcity for three days to shoot the 'Pappu and Pappa' ad. Though, he was under the weather, Khan showed remarkable professionalism by giving priority to completing the shoot instead of cancelling it.  

The star did not complain throughout the long hours of shoot besides the numerous takes he was made to go through. On top of it, the superstar encouraged the child co-star on the sets.  

Additionally, Shahrukh had to give multiple shots till his child co-star Keval got it all right! Onsets SRK behaved a perfect dad encouraging the boy at every cut.  

Meanwhile, SRK is known to be a lucky charm for Karan Johar and when the duo comes together, it's the sign of a hit.  

Even though SRK does not feature in the film, news has it that Shahrukh will be lending his voice to the Ranbir – Sonam starrer I Hate Luv Storys.

Shahrukh has earlier done the voice for the Hindi version of The Incredibles for the character of Mr. Lajawaab (Mr. Incredible) but is not very keen on doing voice overs and has rejected quite a few directors in the past. But it seems that KJO is surely an exception and SRK just cannot refuse this friend for anything.

A source from the film says that it was a last minute decision as KJO was looking for a simple voice narration and since he shared a good rapport with King Khan, he made the choice. SRK will be doing the first five minute narration for the film while introducing the lead cast.

The film is a romantic comedy in which Imran plays the character of Jay, an assistant director who hates love stories, opposite Sonam who plays the role of a production designer and is fascinated by love stories.

The film looks fresh and has a lot of references from Shahrukh's films and therefore his voice becomes even more significant. SRK is surely a multi talented powerhouse. Hope that this lucky charm's voice sure does some magic for the film.
