The ‘King of Bollywood’, Shah Rukh Khan will sit down to have a chat with David Letterman in a special taping for the latter’s Netflix show, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, which will come out on October 25.
On Wednesday, 9 October, Khan took to Twitter to post a short promo for the episode, with a light-hearted caption that went viral:
As per the trailer, Khan and Letterman get up close and personal about Khan’s life and his career spanning 27 years.
It also includes footage of SRK cooking some Italian food, while Letterman puts his acting skills to test (all in vain). It also includes a clip from Letterman’s visit to the Khan residence in Mumbai, on the occasion of Eid.
SRK and Letterman only had words of praise as they shared opinions of each other:
I’ve watched David Letterman’s late-night talk show for years and I’m a huge fan of his style of interviewing. I’m thrilled and honoured to share my story with him.Shah Rukh Khan, as reported by NDTV
The best part of this job that Netflix has been happy to provide for me is to meet people. And after each one of these sessions I think to myself, it is a very smart, very lovely person from whom I have learned things. You [Khan] would maybe be at the top of that list.”David Letterman, as reported by NDTV
The streaming service has announced that the interview is a stand-alone and not part of the regular series.
