Actor and comedian Vir Das has unfortunately been in the news lately for the wrong reasons as he was involved in a huge controversy. Das' comedy special where he talked about coming from Two Indias splurged a huge uproar on social media where he has bashed by many while applauded by a few as well.
Nevertheless, Das is back in the news again but this time for a merry reason. A video of him showering praise on Shah Rukh Khan on an international podcast has been doing the rounds that is being looked at by many.
A fan account of SRK shared a video where Das is seen showering praise on the King Khan of Bollywood, calling him the ‘biggest star in the world’.
In the video, Das is seen introducing the host of the show to Khan. He is heard calling the superstar the biggest star in the world in terms of fan base and even reaches. The actor also added that every Sunday, the superstar has about ten thousand people waiting outside his house.
He also narrates an incident where he wrote jokes for the actor. SRK, however, went on stage and did something of his own and that turned out to be better than what he wrote. Das added that not everybody is smart enough to pull that off but SRK always does.
When the host asked Das what it is that attracts people to Shah Rukh Khan, the comedian said that apart from his charisma, his story is something that people relate to. He came to Mumbai with nothing but a suitcase in his hand and then went on to become the King of Bollywood.
On the work front, Khan will be making a comeback into films after three years of sabbatical with Siddharth Anand’s ‘Pathan’ co-starring Deepika Padukone and John Abraham.
