Shah Rukh Khan greets fans on Eid, David Letterman joins him to witness fan mania

Mumbai: Like every year, superstar Shah Rukh Khan greeted hundreds of fans on Eid from his balcony but he was joined by a special guest this time, American chat show host David Letterman. Shah Rukh is set to appear in a special stand-alone episode with Letterman for Netflix and it seems the fan mania that surrounds the actor will make an appearance on the show. Letterman was also seen waving to Shah Rukh's fans.

The actor, dressed in a white 'pathani', blew kisses to the crowd and also struck his famous romantic pose. His youngest son AbRam also accompanied his father in wishing the crowd, which has become something of a ritual for the actor on every Eid, Diwali and on his birthday. “Thank u all for spending your Eid with me... May God bless u all with health and happiness. #EidMubarak,” Shah Rukh captioned a video of his fans. In May, Shah Rukh had flown to New York to record the episode for Letterman.

“I've watched David Letterman's late-night talk show for years and I'm a huge fan of his style of interviewing. I'm thrilled, and honoured to share my story with him. That this is on Netflix is even more special – I'm working with the team on various projects and it's always been exciting partnering with them,” Shah Rukh, 53, had said. After interviewing SRK in front of the live audience in New York, Letterman, 72, said the actor was one of the loveliest persons he has ever spoken to. “The best part of this job that Netflix has been happy to provide for me is to meet people. And after each one of these sessions I think to myself, it is a very smart, very lovely person from whom I have learned things. You would maybe be at the top of that list.” Netflix is yet to announce the premiere date of the special.
