After their pairing in 2007 blockbuster "Om Shanti Om", Deepika Padukone and Shah Rukh Khan have teamed up for the upcoming film "Chennai Express" and the actress is very happy about it.

The 27-year-old star, who was considered for Salman Khan's "Kick", said she shares a very friendly equation with Shah Rukh after working with him in the romantic comedy "Chennai Express".

"When we did Om Shanti Om, I was a newcomer, nervous and awkward. Today, I can speak to him much more freely. Today, we share a friendly equation. Shah Rukh is a sport. Unfortunately, a lot of people don't get his sense of humour," the actress told IANS in an interview.

"Chennai Express", directed by Rohit Shetty is a hard-core commercial film filled with action and drama. And with Shah Rukh in the lead role, audiences can expect a high dose of romance in the film.

Since it's a romantic comedy, Deepika was under pressure as the focus was on the lead actors throughout the film. But the actress succeeded in enacting her role properly with help from SRK.

"I am glad I've Shah Rukh in Chennai Express to make sure I don't flounder," she said.

The leggy actress had last worked with SRK in "Om Shanti Om", which was also her Bollywood debut. Being a newcomer in the industry, the actress was quite "nervous", but today she interacts "more freely" with him.
