Out of the many things SRK and Brad discussed, dance was on top. “I wouldn’t make it in Bollywood, I can’t dance,” Brad told Shah Rukh, to which our King replied, “We can make anyone dance, I just spread my arms and do nothing, that’s a step,”
Shahrukh khan also expressed his superfan feeling to Brad Pitt. Badshah revealed that Brad’s film The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button was his favourite. “I am a fan of Twelve Monkeys. That’s when I became (Brad Pitt’s) fan,” . Brad looked equally curious to know more about Indian films. “How much time it takes to complete a film in India?” he questioned SRK to which the Bollywood’s king replied, “40 days, and more if there is a problem,”
.Shah Rukh also added that there is a “fear of Hollywood taking over Bollywood” in India. “If we don’t hone up few areas especially script writing, screenplay, marketing, professionalism and technology, we will be taken over by Hollywood,”
SRK took this to twitter, added a picture of him along side Brad and captioned that with best wishes to the Hollywood’s megastar and the director of the movie “War Machine”.
Thats all for now! Hoping that King shares Big screen with Pitt just like he shared this stage!
