And the world needs more people like him. Very genuine, he looks out for you. Whatever happened in my personal life, he flew people over from Chennai to Dubai on a private jet at his own expense for me.”
He further added how Shah Rukh Khan completely won his heart over, “I don’t know how many franchises would do something like that. But that for me was unbelievable, unreal. I didn’t expect it. I had never sat on a private jet in my life. But just the fact that he was able to do that for me and he just completely won my heart over. I could do anything for him, he’s a terrific human being.”
Talking about his equation with SRK, Dinesh said that they spent an amazing time together in Trinidad as they at vada pav on the streets, “They flew me over to Trinidad. He was there for a couple of days. He has a team in CPL called Trinbago Knight Riders. I had a couple of meals with him, I had a Vada pav in the streets of Trinidad. He has a massive fan following in Trinidad. Even there, he had to wear a cap. Even though I had a bad memory, there are somethings you can never forget and the time I’ve spent with him it’s fabulous.”
