Written by Swaati on November 2, 2022
The stardom and fandom of Shah Rukh Khan remains to be unmatchable even today as he received love and best wishes from his fans at midnight. Readers would be aware fans across the city visited Mannat at midnight to wish the superstar on his special day. Now his best friend and filmmaker Karan Johar penned a heartfelt note for SRK where he not only shared some of his fondest memory with the Kuch Kuch Hota Hai actor but also recalled how he met him for the first time on the sets of Karan Arjun.
Taking to Instagram, Karan Johar posted a video, which is a montage of several photo memories that the filmmaker shared with Shah Rukh Khan. Along with that, he also posted a long note describing his bond and camaraderie with the birthday boy saying, “The film was KARAN ARJUN… the set was in Film City… my father and I arrived ( me playing the part of a plus size hanger on) for a professional meeting ( the signing on the dotted line for the film DUPLICATE) I had many apprehensions about movie stars … many of them based on fact and some ofcourse Stardust! So I wondered about this new breakthrough star who was apparently a lot like his first big hit ( DEEWANA for the uninformed ) … he was in costume and met me father warmly and gave him a massive jhappi! He shook my hand and with his immensely kind eyes asked me many questions about my non existent career and my unproductive life ( at that time ) My answers were as bland as khichdi for an upset stomach but he listened with so much attention that I felt at that time that I had cracked the Da Vinci code…That was 29 years ago…”
Karan went on to add, “Today I call him Bhai and he still listens to me with wrapped attention (even when when I am discussing my trials and tribulations of hosting a talk show ) his kind eyes are even kinder … and he is …PERSONALITY! That word just means SRK! For he he is more than family and will always be the my fiercest Critic and my hugest inspiration … I owe my entire being to Adi and bhai…. And today I celebrate him and his extraordinary teaser of what I believe is going to be a juggernaut blockbuster! Hail the King !!! Because there isn’t and will never be another ! Love you Bhai????????@iamsrk”
