Fans reacted to the videos and took to social media platforms to praise Shah Rukh. One person wrote, “Our moon blessed fans beyond Mannat tonight with its beautiful presence @iamsrk love you so much.” “It’s not his birthday, just a regular Sunday of the week at Mannat… This isn’t stardom, it’s SHAAHDOM,” one tweet read.
“Our #Pathaan came out to greet fans outside of Mannat,” another person said. “The last of the stars,” one fan shouted. “This video of King Khan today in Mannat is all heart,” one fan wrote on Twitter. “It wasn’t November 2 or a festival. Yet the crowd was so big. The popularity of King Khan,” another fan tweeted.
Shah Rukh also tweeted a video recorded from Mannat. He wrote: “Thanks for a wonderful Sunday evening…sorry but I hope ki laal gaadi waalon ne apni kursi ki petibaandh li thhi (those in the red car had their seatbelts on). Book your tickets for #Pathaan and see you there later…”
Shah Rukh’s appearance on the balcony of his home comes a day after a fan said he was waiting for the actor outside Mannat. Shah Rukh took to Twitter on Saturday and held an Ask Me Anything session.
A fan tweeted their selfie, clicking outside Mannat and writing, “@iamsrk #AskSRK wait kar raha tha bahar kyu nahi aaye (I waited outside why didn’t you come out)?” Shah Rukh replied, “I feel lazy and want to chill in bed yaar.”
Fans of Shah Rukh will see him next in Pathaan opposite Deepika Padukone. The film also stars John Abraham, Dimple Kapadia and Ashutosh Rana in pivotal roles. It will hit theaters on January 25. Pathaan, directed by Siddharth Anand, is part of Aditya Chopra’s espionage universe.
He also has director Rajkumar Hirani’s upcoming film Dunki opposite Taapsee Pannu, and filmmaker Atlee’s action thriller Jawan.
