Some of these stories are so heartwarming that they have inspired other users to come forward with their own special 'SRK stories' and they are truly priceless.


Singer Chinmayi Sripaada spoke about how she met SRK when she first came on board as a singer for Chennai Express. She shared how he not only compliment her, but met her mother and spoke to her very courtesously despite having the busiest day at the launch.

Journalist Mimansa Shekhar wrote about how he showed up for an interview despite running a high fever, and even apologised for keeping them waiting.

"PS: #JustSaying, because we speak to dozens of actors who never value the time and energy of others. They are stars! #SRK is also one, but his ways are different."

Here is the full story:

Film critic Namrata Joshi perhaps has the most heartwarming story, one about her enounter with SRK on Eid.

What a true star!


Another fan spoke about how they met Shah Rukh Khan on his birthday and touched his feet. "Those few seconds are the best seconds of my life and I'll remember every second of it my entire life," they wrote.

More and more of these stories are pouring in on Twitter and we now know why SRK is the real King Khan, and that no matter what happens, he will always have the unconditional support of the people he has showered his love upon.

Aryan Khan's bail application has been rejected by a special Mumbai court and he remains in custody at Arthur Road Jail, Mumbai. His next bail hearing will be on 26 October.
