"Tujhe dekha toh yeh jaana sanam..." when the Badshah of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan sang this song from his evergreen movie Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge on Friday, not only did the audience erupt in excitement, but leading Malayalam actor Manju Warrier stood beside him, blushing away!
Shah Rukh Khan arrived along with popular actors from the south and brand ambassadors of Kalyan Jewellers, including Manju Warrier, Shivrajkumar, Prabhu Ganesan and Nagarjuna, to inaugurate three showrooms in Muscat.
Sharing the stage with the most popular names from the south Indian film industry, Shah Rukh Khan mesmerrised the audience and gave Muscat a most memorable night.
While actor Amitabh Bachchan was supposed to join the other brand ambassadors in inaugurating the showrooms, he had to cancel his participation after he took ill.
Shah Rukh Khan, a long standing friend of the Kalyan Jewellers family, agreed to step in and take his place. And for anybody who missed Amitabh Bachchan at the event, Shah Rukh Khan had the perfect remedy. The actor went on to imitate Amitabh, addressing the audience in his voice.
"I will convey all this love to Amitji," Shah Rukh Khan said, swiftly switching over to Amitabh's voice.
"I am very sorry I couldn't be here tonight, but my love is with Kalyan Jewellers and all of you," he said in Hindi, leaving the audience, cheering endlessly.
Not just this, SRK also managed to convince Nagarjuna to deliver a popular dialogue from his movie, and he soon followed up the act by getting Shivrajkumar to sing the Jogi song.
After the event, Malayalam actor Manju Warrier took to Facebook to describe the experience she had in Muscat.
Saying that Shah Rukh Khan had given her a New Year gift by singing a song from his most popular film, Manju wrote:
"Till now I had only seen the Badshah on television screens and the big screen. Now I have met him in person. Dear Shah Rukh, I have heard about the Shah Rukh Khan effect that you carry, which excites everyone who meets you. I also felt that I am someone who is close to you."
