There is absolutely no one who can manage to be as witty
as King Khan. Shah Rukh Khan was addressed as Salman Khan at the TED Talks event
that took place in Mumbai on Thursday evening.
Shah Rukh Khan At TED Talks Mumbai
It so happened that a reporter was about to ask Shah Rukh something, but addressed him as ‘Salman’ instead of Shah Rukh. She immediately corrected herself and apologised for the goof up. Soon after that, SRK asked her “What’s your name?” “Lipika,” she said. “Don’t worry Deepika it’s alright.. Oh I am so sorry, Lipika.” What happened next? Well, the whole crowd burst into laughter!

For the uninitiated, TED Talks India Nayi Soch, hosted by Shah Rukh Khan is a bold new experiment on Indian television. The series brings back the superstar to the small screen after shows like Kaun Banega Crorepati and Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain?
At the event, when SRK was quizzed about the competition from the other superstars- Salman Khan is hosting Bigg Boss 11 and Akshay Kumar will be seen as ‘super judge’ on The Great Indian Laughter Challenge- this is what the actor said: “To be really honest, what Salman and Akshay are doing, they are in a league of their own. I am not even competing with them right now. They are doing well. It’s sweet of Salman to say what he said. Having said that, this show is so different that we are not competing on the same platform,” said Shah Rukh.
Shah Rukh Khan On Stage
On the work front, Shah Rukh Khan was last seen in Imtiaz Ali’s Jab Harry Met Sejal. The film failed to perform well at the box office. SRK is currently working on his next film, Anand L Rai’s dwarf movie. They have already begun shooting for the much anticipated film. Apart from Shah Rukh, the film also stars Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma. However, the list doesn’t end there. A bandwagon of celebrities like Karisma Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Sridevi, Rani Mukerji, Kajol and Deepika Padukone too, will be seen in the dwarf film. However, apart from Anushka Sharma, all the actresses will be seen doing a cameo in the dwarf movie.
