Fun and enjoyment are best left alone. Don't treat it more seriously. All of us are one. To put it simply, this is Deepika Padukone, yeh Amar hain. We are all in love with one another and working to share that love. Main Akbar hoon, main Shah Rukh Khan hoon Yeh Anthony, yeh John hain. And this is how movies are made.
