Shah Rukh Khan was in a candid interview with David Letterman. Bollywood’s King Khan felt thrilled and honoured to appear on David Letterman’s My Next Guest Needs No Introduction show. The super star shot the episode in New York last week. In a statement, Shah Rukh Khan expressed his joy in sharing his story with the famous talk-show host. “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.” The SRK episode will be a stand-alone special on Netflix. Speaking about the show, Letterman said “the best part of this job that Netflix has been happy to provide for me is to meet people”.
“After each one of these sessions I think to myself, it is a very smart, very lovely person from whom I have learned things,” he added. “Shah Rukh,” he added, “Would maybe be at the top of that list.” Taking to Twitter, Shah Rukh thanked Letterman for his generosity. “No more footprints...this is The Abominable Snowman!! Before BatMan & SpiderMan, there is Mr. LetterMan. Thanks for your generosity. Had too much fun being interviewed. Not because it was about me but because you were kind enough to make me feel I can be me. You are an inspiration.” Letterman posted a picture of the two on Instagram and wrote: “Even more great conversation is on its way.”
