NEW DELHI — Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who was here to promote his film “Dear Zindagi,” which has been directed by Gauri Shinde, says that he is more comfortable working with male directors with feminine sensitivity or women.

“I am more comfortable working with female directors. I find that when being directed by men also who are a little more women-like sensitive, there is a quality to that sensitivity. Of course I have worked with directors who are action directors, which is also cool, but I think, yes, I am more comfortable working with female directors,” Khan told the media here Nov. 22.

He was here for a press conference to promote the film along with actress Alia Bhatt and Shinde.

“Dear Zindagi” is a slice-of-life film with Bhatt playing the protagonist, an aspiring filmmaker who is on the lookout for a lot of unanswered questions. The film also features Ali Zafar, Aditya Roy Kapur, Kunal Kapoor and Angad Bedi.

The film is all set to hit the screens Nov. 25.
