Cash crunch or not, that's how you honour Shah Rukh Khan's entry scene in Hyderabad. Fans of the Bollywood superstar reportedly threw cash in the air at Shah Rukh's entry scene in his latest film Dear Zindagi
, which released on November 25
. Shah Rukh, who plays a therapist (cum life coach) Jehangir Khan
aka Jug to a budding filmmaker Kaira (played by Alia Bhatt), reportedly makes an entry almost 50 minutes into the film. But neither SRK's delayed entry, nor the cash crunch resulting from Prime Minister Narendra Modi's currency ban, could deter the spirit of the actor's fans. And Shah Rukh, 51, humbled, thanked them on Twitter saying: "If this is actual currency, what can I say. It's kind of lavish to say the least. Thanks for the rich welcome."
