Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who recently attended the Red Sea International Film Festival, left the ‘Basic Instinct’ actress Sharon Stone gasping at the event after she realized that it was him who was sitting next to her all the while.
The ‘Pathaan’ actor was recently honored at the fest for his contributions to Indian cinema, as his name was announced and he stood up, Sharon was in total disbelief upon noticing him. In a video which is going viral on social media, Sharon can be seen clapping and seeming to mouth “oh my god”.
In response to Stone’s reaction, SRK can be seen humbly greeting the actress with a ‘salaam’ (a gesture of greeting in Islamic culture). SRK fans have since then been going gaga over the clip. One fan wrote, “My favorite part of today’s event, Sharon Stone’s reaction when she realized Shah Rukh Khan is sitting next to her.. We can’t blame her, can we?”
Another one wrote, “Reaction of Sharon Stone is what this man @iamsrk earned from all across the world.”
SRK received an honorary award at the festival. His ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’ co-star Kajol too was present at the event in Saudi Arabia along with Oscar and Grammy winning composer AR Rahman.
