He followed it up with "Being Cyrus", "Lage Raho Munna Bhai", "Khosla Ka Ghosla", "Don - The Chase Begins Again" and "3 Idiots".
The actor admits that in the past, there were films that had put the spotlight on senior actors and proved to do well.
"I think 'Khosla Ka Ghosla' was a good example where the title role was played by Anupam Kher. There have been many examples in the past too," he said, stressing that an artiste's age is of little significance. "I feel it is not about characters, but more about the story. It is eventually the story that we are telling and then everything comes under play. We have to come up with a great story," added the actor who is geared up for his next release "Happy New Year". Directed by Farah Khan and produced by Shah Rukh Khan's Red Chillies Entertainment, the film is centred on six losers who set out to change their destiny. Other actors who will be seen in the film include Deepika, Abhishek Bachchan, Sonu Sood, and Vivaan Shah along with Shah Rukh himself. "Happy New Year" is set for a Diwali release.
