When Shah Rukh Khan met AIB: 6 times the podcast had us laughing our ass off!
The FIFA mystery!
Before AIB came into existence, Tanmay Bhat and Rohan Joshi had met Shah Rukh Khan at his Mannat residence wherein the superstar had showed them his luxurious bungalow. During this meeting, Shah Rukh had promised them that he would call them for a game of FIFA, but of course he did not. Tanmay being his witty best recalled this incident only to be left stumped by SRK's response. SRK replied, saying, "I’m wondering why today also." Then he made a sarcastic comment and said, "Did you really think I would call you next day to play FIFA?"
The demonetisation drama!
Out of no where, Tanmay asked Shah Rukh Khan whether demonetisation had any effect on him and the star burst out laughing. Like, literally!
The Meryl Streep Saga!
When Meryl Streep delivered a powerful speech against Donald Trump, a lot of people came out in open and said that why don't our Bollywood stars raise their voice like the actress. To this, SRK had a classy response. He said that "Kya hua na is baar Filmfare Award nahi mila…milta toh yahi speech deta. Jab sala award hi nahi milega toh speech kaise dunga." He further joked and said that "Next year give me all the awards, I'll have amazing speeches to give."
Shah Rukh Khan's cheap thrill moment!
This one is the most highlighting and hilarious moment of the entire podcast! He was asked about his cheap thrills moment where he narrated an incident while shooting advertising. Now we know he does many advertisements ranging from shampoos to biscuits. But then of course, the funda of these advertisements is that such things like dandruff, itching etc do not happen to him because he uses these products. But then advertisements and the creative briefs can be extremely amazing. So SRK was doing this ad for a biscuit brand wherein he was briefed, "I was doing an ad for a biscuit. And there are only couple of ways that even the most varied kind of an actor can eat a biscuit. You can be in love with it, you can be angry with it – I tried all of that. But a biscuit is not eaten with any emotion you know. It’s eaten with biscuit emotion. A lot of times ek aadmi ya aurat aate hain jo emotionally involved hote hain apne product ke sath and rightly so aur who mujhko aake bolte hain ‘Sir I want you to eat the biscuit. The feeling of homeliness, the feeling of years of gone by, the feeling of who you are. The feeling of all your achievements gone in that one bite’ and my biggest cheap thrill is that my team is like ‘itni feeling aati toh yaar Filmfare mil jata’ They’re very protective. They are like ‘Itna bola yaar sir ko. Itna toh inke baap ko bhi kisi ne nahi bola’."
The Shaadi saga!
When SRK was asked how is it being the one stealing the spotlight from bride and the groom at the weddings, the superstar said, "I mean… they should be happy I’m not stealing the bride away."
The drunken world tours!
In his early days, Shah Rukh Khan used to be disappointed with his contemporary stars. One, because he used to not get the best of the seats in the aircraft and two, because his contemporaries used to turn up drunk at the show and turn off the crowd. Then there used to be nothing much left for the King Khan to do.
