Shah Rukh Khan and David Beckham were both in attendance at the same mall in London, however SRK was the one who faced a mob rather than Beckham.
Shah Rukh Khan, a Bollywood superstar, is one of the most well-known people in the world. He has a huge fan base not just in India but all across the world. Numerous Hollywood A-listers concur that wherever he goes, he draws insane crowds. Also mentioned by the superstar was an occasion in which David Beckham was also present.
Back in 2012, when the football superstar and King Khan were both present at the same mall in London, it was SRK who was surrounded by hundreds of followers, not Beckham. Beckham was startled by the fanfare and enquired of the mall’s administrators about the identity of the celebrity who was bigger than him.
In a video of Farhan Akhtar and SRK, Farhan said, “mene suna hai ki aap Karan Johar ki shoot karne gaye the, Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna. New York state me shoot kar rahe the. Karan ne muje bataya tha ke New York film council ke jo lady thi, unko bataya tha ke we need extra security kyun ki SRK aane wale hai shoot karne ke liye, aur crows will be mad. Aur woh lady jo thi unko pata nhi tha what she was into. unhone kaha ke me bhej dungi 4-5 security logon ko. Toh Karan emphasized ke please thoda zyada bhej dijiye. She was like we handled, Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt.”
“Par jab aap wahan gaye toh serious tamasha hua. Station bandh karna pada. Trains cancel hue. Woh lady transfer hogyi siberia me,” as both Farhan and King Khan erupted in laughter. Pathaan star then added, “New York ke andhar saara subcontinent aagaya tha. Station bandh karna pada. Hume cheating karke koi aur jagah pe shooting karni padi. She was transferred yaa, to gulag.”
Farhan Akhtar then asked, “David Beckham se bhi mile? aisa kuch hua tha Beckham bhi the wahan par aur saara crowd jo the wahan par, and you were bombed, yeh kon hai? aisa bhi kuch hua tha.”
Shah Rukh Khan agreed to the incident and answered, “Log jo hai porshe ko trample karke aage aarahe the. Me ek computer store gaya tha Preity Zinta ke saath aur Saif Ali Khan ke saath.”
Shah Rukh Khan added, “And Beckham bhi wahan par the. Aur me Football freak, muje bohat acchi lagti hai soccer. Toh me use pehchan gaya tha. Humare saath bhi bodyguard the, uske saath bhi bodyguard the. jab crowd aageye, woh [David Beckham] dekh raha tha, yeh kon log hai yaar, yeh konsi game khelte hai. Mene usko bataya nhi. Beckham is still confused.”
In 2012, coincidentally #ShahRukhKhan & David Beckham were both present at the same mall in London and it wasn't Beckham but SRK who got all mobbed by hundreds of fans.
Later David Beckham enquired the mall authorities that who was this celebrity even bigger than him. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/EjdfAOJwrm
