Earlier this year, in May, talk show host David Letterman engaged in a candid conversation with Shah Rukh Khan. The show will be presented as a stand-alone special on Netflix and in a press statement, the OTT platform said that it “combines two interests for which Letterman is renowned: in-depth conversations with extraordinary people, and in-the-field segments expressing his curiosity and humor.”
Ahead of the conversation, Shah Rukh Khan said, “I’ve watched David Letterman’s late-night talk show for years and I’m a huge fan of his style of interviewing. I’m thrilled and honoured to share my story with him. That this is on Netflix is even more special – I’m working with the team on various projects and it’s always been exciting partnering with them.”
After interviewing Shah Rukh Khan in front of a live audience, Letterman said, “After each one of these sessions I think to myself, it is a very smart, very lovely person from whom I have learned things. You would maybe be at the top of that list.”
Shah Rukh Khan reveals in the trailer that he’s learning to cook Italian and cooks for his kids when they have the midnight pangs. Letterman seems to have joined the actor in his home, Mannat, where thousands come each day, trying to catch a glimpse of their hero. Gauri Khan and AbRam are also seen in the trailer.
SRK has been on a break from movies and has been looking for the right project and rumour has it that he’s agreed to work with the Tamil director Atlee. Altee’s Bigil will release this Deepavali and after that, he’s expected to start work on this project with King Khan.
As always @Letterman so erudite…so eloquent…”You don’t even know, eh, may be you do know, but this is eh, I don’t know, you know what I’m talking about…” my most cherished intro for any public appearance…love it. https://t.co/8qHwtcs9zY
