The feeling of getting to shake hands with King Khan is inexpressible in words ♥️ We are sure the FANs of King Khan in Sharjah can relate to this today! #ShahRukhKhan #SharjahInternationalBookFair pic.twitter.com/B7Nz2krPpB— Shah Rukh Khan Universe Fan Club (@SRKUniverse) November 11, 2022
When he started to utter a word, the fans who catch up with their favourite actor after spending long hours in queues were cheering him so loud that he had to keep reminding them to keep calm as it was a book fair and not a rock concert filled with his frenzied groupies.
He waved at the hundreds of people who attended the venue as screams of “I love you Shah Rukh” rang through the hall.
I had no idea what story I want to tell after 32years of actively working day in & day out on cinema. I still believe that I should try to go back to that same stage where I was just excited by someone telling me you've to do this & I'm like ok let's go & do this! - #ShahRukhKhan pic.twitter.com/lQkkY4roGh— Shah Rukh Khan Universe Fan Club (@SRKUniverse) November 11, 2022
He said, “I am grateful for all the love that you have showered on me every time I come here. Let me sound a bit intelligent since it’s a book fair, and then do my lungi dance,” Joked Khan jam-packed hall who couldn’t stop chanting his name.
He delivered on his promise as he treated the fans thronging the venue to his iconic dialogue from his hit films such as ‘Don’, ‘Baazigar’, and ‘Om Shanti Om’ after he spoke about life, culture, and everything in between.
This is the advice of a Bollywood actor to his fans, “Hold an honest and gentle heart… there’s nothing needed to lead this life more successfully than these two qualities in your heart.”
The actor, who is widely regarded as one of the most successful actors in the world, ended the evening by enthralling his audiences with some of his most famous dialogues from movies like 'Baazigar', 'Om Shanti Om', 'Don' and 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' as crowds cheered him on.
