On June 5, Shah Rukh Khan kept his annual date with his fans, emerging on the balcony of Mannat, his Bandra residence, with son AbRam, to wish them Eid Mubarak. Only this time, the duo had company. Watching them closely and taking in the sight from the sidelines, was veteran American TV host, comedian, writer and producer David Letterman.
Last month, the 53-year-old actor had flown to New York to be a part of Letterman’s talk show.
“No more footprints, this is The Abominable Snowman! Before Batman and Spiderman, there is Mr Letterman. Had too much fun being interviewed. Not because it was about me but because you were kind enough to make me feel I can be me. You are an inspiration, sir,” SRK had gushed soon after their meeting.
Now, Mirror has learnt that Letterman is in India to film some portions for the episode.
“David’s visit to Mumbai was planned well in advance as he wanted to showcase some key aspects of SRK’s life from back home. The team covered the fan mania outside his home on Eid. David was amused to see the huge crowd that waited for hours to get a glimpse of their screen idol—besides filming the interiors of Mannat and capturing him spend time with his family. David also celebrated the festival with the Khans and sampled traditional Indian delicacies,” informs a source.
On Thursday, SRK resumed shooting with Letterman.
“For the portions, he took a stroll down Bandstand for a few minutes, even as a cameraman trailed him. While at it, he also shook hands with his fans and waved at bystanders from his car-roof before zooming off,” informs the source.
