KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 16 — They say the bigger the star, the nicer the celebrity.
Luckily, for Jatin Gupta, a die-hard fan of famous Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan, it turned out to be true.
Jatin was one of dozens of fans who recently lined up outside Khan’s hotel in New Delhi, India for a chance to meet him. Khan was there to unveil a new Hyundai SUV at international car show Auto Expo 2023.
Instead of hiding or fleeing, the 57-year-old actor welcomed his fans into his hotel room for a chat, The Indian Express reported.
It was a dream come true for Jatin, who not only got to talk to his idol but also kissed him on the cheek.
Calling himself the biggest worshipper of Shah Rukh Khan, Jatin even has a portrait tattoo to prove it.
He took to Twitter to share the photos of the once-in-a-lifetime meeting. Jatin also thanked Khan for being gracious enough to chat and take photos with him at 2am.
“Thank you @iamsrk For Taking Your Time out for us, 2:00 AM,” Jatin tweeted.
“No other superstar did this for their fans like you do, calling us inside your Hotel Room & giving Us Full Time, attention & respect. Thank you for your blessings. I am sorry to disturb you at late night, But I Love u,” he added.
Fellow fans were quick to respond.
“That’s a moment of a lifetime. Congratulations Jatin. Keep reliving this moment throughout your life,” said @Iam_bhagyasree.
“How amazing! You’re absolutely the luckiest,” tweeted @LauriMinna.
Fans worldwide are looking forward to the January 25 release of Khan’s film Pathaan directed by Siddharth Anand. The movie also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham.
