Shahrukh Khan takes a dig at Tarun Tejpal
We all know Shahrukh Khan tops the chart in making tricky and humorous comments and at a recent event, showcasing his humorous side, he jokingly took a dig at founder cum former editor of Tehelka, Tarun Tejpal. Tarun has been booked for sexually assaulting his junior colleague in a hotel room. It was indeed a serious matter and when Shahrukh mentioned about Tarun’s inhuman deed, the audience at first was confused as they did not know how to react but later they broke into laughter.
While Tejpal is in Goa in police custody, the star took a dig at Tejpal at a conclave which was hosted by a news channel in New Delhi on Wednesday. The event was attended by Indian renowned personalities apart from SRK’s colleagues from Bollywood, Priyanka Chopra and Aamir Khan.
Shahrukh in his signature style answered all the questions asked by the interviewer. He said his job is to entertain people through movies and when the interviewer asked him to deliver some romantic lines as he is considered as the king of romance. Shahrukh mouthed ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ famous romantic lines referring to the interviewer. He asked her whether she is married, she said ‘yes’ and he instantly said hope her husband is not watching the show. King Khan then said her he would like to romance her somewhere outside the venue but definitely not in a lift.
SRK took a pause and then said “No... no you are a journalist, not in a lift.”
As some members among the the audience broke into laughter, he went a step further and said, “Adnan Sami’ s Lift Kara De song now has a new meaning.”
An onlooker says, “Shah Rukh may have just said it in a lighter vein but for a second there was stunned silence. There was this sense of disbelief considering it is a sensitive case. However, later people caught it as a joke and started laughing.”As we have seen 100, 200, 300 crore clubs is a new trend in Bollywood but King Khan declares he is aiming to enter the Rs 1,000 crore club.
