Shah Rukh Khan is undoubtedly one of the biggest superstars in the country who often takes social media by storm thanks to his intelligence and sense of humor. As the actor has been somewhat of a low-key for the past few months, fans have been eagerly awaiting his return in the upcoming action drama Pathan. In a recent turn of events, SRK sent a bunch of signed photographs and a personalized note to the Egyptian fan which went viral on Twitter a few weeks ago.
For the uninitiated, the whole episode started when an Indian professor with a passport, named Ashwini Deshpande, tweeted a little story, explaining how an Egyptian travel agent let them make payments later just because that they belonged to the same country as SRK. She explained how the travel agent made payments on her behalf when he faced an error while transferring money.
“I needed to transfer money to a travel agency in Egypt. Had problems with the transfer. He said: you are from the country of @iamsrk. I trust you. I’ll make the reservation, you pay me later. For anywhere else, I wouldn’t do that. But anything for @iamsrk. & He did! #SRK is.”, she wrote.

The tweet was quick to gain attention on the internet as people were surprised to see the kind of impact Shah Rukh Khan had. In a follow-up tweet, Ashwini asked Red Chillies Entertainment if they could send a signed photographer for the travel agent and guess what, SRK actually did.
In the latest update, the professor thanked Shah Rukh Khan and her manager for a package she received from the actor’s production company. “A very happy ending to this story. 3 photos signed by SRK arrived today, one with the most beautiful message for the Egyptian travel agent, one for his daughter and one for mine @Ketaki_Varma Thanks @pooja_dadlani for reaching out and of course to Crown @ iamsrk for the gracious gesture,” she wrote. Here is an overview.
My husband and I finally met the man in this story today! I told him about the tsunami of good humor generated by his story. @RedChilliesEnt: he would be delighted with a photo of @iamsrk, dedicated in the name of his daughter if possible. Please DM me if this can be arranged, thanks! 😊 https://t.co/Ea9nckNqFm pic.twitter.com/q44KeOVTw7
