Shah Rukh Khan is one Bollywood actor who is recognized on a global level even when he has not worked in International films. There is enough proof of the same and the recent example is that of US envoy Eric Garcetti realizing his global power thanks to people in his office. The two bonded over cricket the most.

What Eric and SRK discussed

While talking to ANI, Eric revealed that he and Shah Rukh Khan talked cricket on his first day in town. He stayed for a couple of weeks in Mumbai. “Because of course, he owns part of the Los Angeles team,” Eric said.

The reaction on seeing SRK

“Everybody in my office went nuts. They were like ‘Oh My God, do you know who we met?’ I said yeah, Shah Rukh Khan. But I didn’t realize the level of love that there was across the country,” Eric said during the interview. The two loved talking not only about cricket but also food. Eric said he loves interacting with people. “If we know each other, that will sustain for life,” he mentioned.

SRK on the project front

Shah Rukh Khan worked in three movies in 2023. He was first seen in Siddharth Anand’s Pathaan, which was a part of the YRF Spy Universe. The movie featured Deepika Padukone and John Abraham apart from Shah Rukh Khan and soon after the release, Tiger vs Pathaan with Salman Khan and Shah Rukh was announced (Salman had a cameo in Pathaan).

This was followed by Jawan, directed by Atlee. Also starring Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi, the film was declared the biggest hit of the year (and was a huge hit on Netflix too). SRK was then seen in the Christmas release Dunki. The movie, helmed by Rajkumar Hirani (his comeback film), also starred Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal.
