The actor revealed that the plot of the film also spans an extended period of time.
"It is a love story. Normally in a love story it is always two girls who love me and I have to decide," Khan told BollySpice.
"I am always the guy taking the girl away from their ex-lovers or husband. So yeah, it is a similar kind of role."
Khan stars alongside Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma in the project, which has been largely shot in the UK.
"It does span some time so I get to be a little different, because I think I have reached a stage and age in my life that just doing a typical love story is a little out of bounds for me. I feel odd now sometimes doing a love story," he said.
"I have done four - five of them, big ones and more or less love stories are similar. You meet a girl, you fall in love, then you separate, then you come back together again. So this, for me, is also a chance to think of a different way to do it."
Khan also said that he is enjoying the experience of working with Chopra on his latest directorial venture.
"I am very happy working with Mr Yash Chopra, I find it very unique every time I work with him, more than any other director I have worked with I enjoy that," he said.
"You have sat down and discussed the scene with your co-actor and you are like, okay we are gong to do it like this, blah, blah, blah, and suddenly he comes up bringing this idea 'Do you think she is beautiful?'
"And I say 'Yeah'. 'Then make her feel she is beautiful. Just do that, there is no other information I want'. It just keeps it so simple and basic."
The Khan-Kaif-Sharma love triangle movie will release in November.
