The stories of Shah Rukh Khan’s big heart are heard in plenty every now and then. As big is his stardom, the superstar’s humility and heart are as big too. The actor is known to be a great friend and a video that surfaced online recently, shows how Shah Rukh Khan has been a great friend to Farah Khan.
Shah Rukh Khan left a shoot for Farah Khan…
An old video of Farah Khan talking to Shah Rukh during what looks like an interview, sees the filmmaker recall the time SRK became her therapist. It was after her father’s death and while she was going through a low phase in her life.
In the video, Farah said to Shah Rukh, “My dad passed away, but he sent you here to look after me. I really want to thank you because you do look after me. I recall this one incident, many years ago when I was going through an emotional trauma, I don’t even know if you remember it because you have seen me through so many traumas.”
She continued, “I was crying on the phone and within half an hour, you left your shooting… I opened the door, and you were standing outside. You sat with me for one hour and you just talked to me. It was like having the best therapy ever.”
Shah Rukh and Farah equation
SRK and Farah have been friends for a very long time. Farah made the actor dance to her steps on innumerable songs since the 90s, including before and even after becoming a filmmaker. After turning a director, she made 3 of her 4 films with the Badshah only, including her directorial debut Main Hoon Na. She also became the first director to have SRK go shirtless and flaunt his six-pack abs in Om Shanti Om. Post that, they did Happy New Year together as well.
