There are two people that Sushant Singh Rajput totally idolise and he never lets go off an opportunity to show his love for them – former Indian Cricket Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan. Sushant Singh Rajput has already paid off his homage to Dhoni by playing him in the biopic MS Dhoni: The Untold Story last year, for which he won a lot of accolades, while many claim it was his best performance till date. He is also being nominated in every award ceremony for his role in the movie.
As for Shah Rukh Khan, he dedicates every performance of his at the award ceremonies to his idol. It’s natural for him to follow King Khan, since both of them basically don’t belong to any star family and yet they have reached the top of their game in the industry. There is also the fact that they are the part of the rare few who managed to have a successful transition from television to Bollywood, while many have tried and failed. So when Sushant Singh Rajput was in Dubai, he shot for a video where he tried to pull off Shah Rukh Khan’s most famous pose, and his own admittance, didn’t get it quite right…
Here’s that video…

The ever affable Shah Rukh Khan was quite mollified by his gesture, and he praised Sushant for getting ‘everything’ right about the pose.

Earlier, also Sushant Singh Rajput credited Shah Rukh Khan as a reason for his visit to Dubai. Remember that Dubai invitation video SRK had shot? Well, that’s what SSR was referring to.
When SRK says #BeMyGuest,
how can one say no! Looking forward to an adventurous trip in Dubai soon!
