When SRK made Saina Nehwal’s day!
Hyderabad, Sep 18 (IANS) A visit to the set of “Dilwale” turned out to be a happy and amazing experience for badminton ace Saina Nehwal. The film’s lead star Shah Rukh Khan says even he had a little ‘tuk tuk’ moment with her.
The tryst between the ‘Badshah’ of the silver screen with the reigning queen of badminton court, seems to have had a Bollywood touch!
“Dhal gaya din (tuk). Ho gayi shaam (tuk)…Jaane doh jaana hai. Who all know this song from Humjoli?? My tuk tuk moment with Saina,” Shah Rukh tweeted.
Along with the lyrics of the popular Mohammed Rafi-Asha Bhosle song from movie “Humjoli”, the 49-year-old also shared an image in which he is posing with Nehwal with badminton racquet in his hand.
The cine icon also devised a way to beat Nehwal at the game – with a string-less racquet.
“Made sure @NSaina had no strings in her racquet…maybe the only way 2 beat her at badminton. U hav a lovely family,” SRK posted.
Nehwal, who clinched a silver medal at the Badminton World Championships last month, was happy at the meeting and thanked director Rohit Shetty for letting her watch the film’s shoot.
“#Dilwale I would like to thank Rohit Shetty sir the director for showing us the Dilwale shooting amazing person. Oh my GOD! Shahrukh sir ur such a nice person very happy to meet u…U made my day thank u so much,” she shared with a string of images.
She also posted images featuring actors Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon, who also play a pivotal role in the film.
