Shah Rukh has been ruling box-office and the hearts of Indian fans for over two decades now. Over the years we have seen massive fan support for King Khan in India and with Jab Harry met Sejal set to release this Friday, SRK’s craze has once again taken over the country. The fans are getting themselves ready to witness this tale directed by Imtiaz Ali that has promised so much from its trailers. However, one man has taken his support to the next level by naming a paan after the uncrowned ‘King of Romance’ of Bollywood, according to news agency ANI.
Satish Kumar who is the owner of Tamboolam Paan Shop in Varanasi has named a paan after superstar Shah Rukh Khan. The reason why Satish did this is also quite fascinating. He told media that Shah Rukh Khan aka SRK and his Jab Harry met Sejal co-star Anushka Sharma dropped at his shop to promote the film recently. Since then, most of Satish’s customers have been curious to know which paan was savoured by the super star. To end the confusion for once and all, Satish said he had since named a ‘meetha paan’ as ‘Shah Rukh Paan’ with the usual ingredients.
Shah Rukh’s connection with paan goes long back when he acted in Farhan Akhtar’s Don. Back then, SRK had danced to Amitabh Bachchan’s famous song ‘Khai ke paan Banaras wala’ for the remake of movie Don which originally starred Amitabh Bachchan in the 1970s.
Currently, Shah Rukh is busy promoting Jab Harry Met Sejal with Anushka Sharma that will hit the screen worldwide on August 4. The movie has been directed by Imtiaz Ali and from the trailer, one can figure out that SRK will be back in his old carefree avatar.
