The Kapil Sharma Show: Akshay Kumar calls Shah Rukh Khan to fulfil a fan’s request; find out what happened in this video
Akshay Kumar, who recently appeared on The Kapil Sharma Show got an unusual request from a Shah Rukh Khan fan. As a girl asked Kumar to call SRK as she wants to speak with him. To which, the Khiladi of Bollywood was nice enough to call SRK, but sadly his phone was switched off. Then the fan told the Bell Bottom actor to call SRK’s wife Gauri Khan.
Though Akshay tried to fulfill the fan’s wish and called Shah Rukh, the number was switched off. “Sir, doosre number pe call karo (please try an alternate number),” she requested, to which host Kapil Sharma joked, “Shah Rukh Khan PCO mein kaam karte hai (Does Shah Rukh Khan work at a public call office)?”
Akshay tried an alternate number but to no avail. The fan then suggested that he call up Gauri Khan, leaving his fellow guests Vaani Kapoor and Huma Qureshi in splits.“Saari baat aap pe aayegi. Gauri bhabhi bolengi, ‘Akshay ji aap bigaad rahe hai humare pati ko’ (The blame will come on you. Gauri will say that you are spoiling Shah Rukh),” Kapil joked, before adding, “So sweet of you, paaji.”Well, wouldn’t it have been amazing folks had SRK actually picked Akki’s call?
