Superstar Shah Rukh Khan has shared a picture of himself with footballer David Beckham, and penned a note for the “icon”, sharing how he has always been an admirer of the “absolute gentleman”. SRK had hosted a private party for the former English footballer, at his residence Mannat in Mumbai.
Taking to social media, SRK posted a happy picture with David, wherein we can see SRK in a black tee shirt and blue denim pants. He accessorised the look with a black pearl chain. On the other hand, David looked handsome in an olive green tee shirt, and paired it with a black striped coat and matching pants.
In the caption, the ‘Jawan’ star wrote: “Last nite with an icon…and an absolute gentleman. Have always been a big admirer but meeting him and seeing how he is with kids made me realise that the only thing that out does his football is his kindness and his gentle nature. My love to your family. Be well and happy my friend and get some sleep…@Davidbeckham.”
The post has garnered more than 25 lakh likes. Kareena Kapoor Khan wrote in the comment section: “Two GOATS,” followed by a red heart emoji.
