New Delhi:

Ayan Mukerji's Brahmastra, which boasts of a super impressive star cast including, Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy, has more to offer than what the trailers presented (read a cameo appearance by one of the biggest stars). The film hit the theatres on Friday and turns out, all the fan theories about Shah Rukh Khan being a part of the film were true after all. Twitter users absolutely cannot keep calm after Shah Rukh came on screens. The many, many tweets reflect the jubilant mood of Shah Rukh Khan fans.

Check out some of the tweets here:

An excited Shah Rukh Khan fan shared this post.

Because one tweet isn't enough to reflect how excited SRK fans are. "There can't be another SRK in a thousand years. Long live the king," added another fan.

"Our Scientist SRK," added another fan.

Call it the SRK effect.

"Seeing Shah Rukh Khan after years on the big screen. My heart is full. SRK fans will have a good time watching this one. Missed you King," added another fan.

Shah Rukh Khan made back-to-back cameo appearances in films this year and we are not complaining at all. Neither are Twitter users. An excited SRK fan shared stills of Shah Rukh Khan from Aamir Khan's Laal Singh Chaddha, Madhavan's Rocketry: The Nambi Effect and Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt's Brahmastra. A Shah Rukh Khan appreciation post of sorts by a fan:

Meanwhile, Brahmastra opened to largely positive reviews. Film critic Saibal Chatterjee, in his review for NDTV, gave the film a 3-star rating and he wrote: "Brahmastra Part One: Shiva, ambitious and entertaining, has the makings of a blockbuster of the sort that Bollywood has been desperately seeking for a while."
