A picture of Shah Rukh Khan from his threatre days - who wouldn't want to see it?

The photo, clicked at a railway station, features a much younger version of Shah Rukh Khan waiting on the platform with his comedy play Rough Crossing co-stars Divya Seth, Sanjoy K Roy and Rituraj Singh. Theatre Action Group (TAG)'s 1991 play Rough Crossing was directed by Barry John, under whom Shah Rukh Khan and even Manoj Bajpayee studied acting in Delhi. The photo was taken when Shah Rukh and his co-stars were on their way to perform the play in Kolkata.
After a fan posted the photo on Twitter, Sanjoy K Roy, who is now the managing director of an event management company, re-tweeted it and wrote: "Truly iconic. Shah Rukh Khan, Rituraj Singh, Divya Seth and me on our way to Calcutta to stage Rough Crossing in aid of Shruti! Directed by #BarryJohn."
