Re-shared video of Shah Rukh meeting his hundreds of fans gathered outside Mannat after Pathaan’s release on his Twitter handle, Paulo wrote, “King. Legend. Friend. But above all GREAT ACTOR ( for those who don’t know him in the West, I strongly suggest “My name is Khan- and I am not a terrorist”).”
‘Eleven Minutes’ author also introduced King Khan to the people in the West by asking them to watch My Name Is Khan.
On Friday, the ‘Jawan’ actor responded to Paulo in the sweetest way. He wrote, “You are always too kind my friend. Let us meet up sooner than soon!! Bless you.”
