Shah Rukh Khan is on a train to Delhi from Mumbai right now and shortly after boarding on Monday evening, he tweeted about a 'woman of substance' he recently met. As part of promotions for his upcoming film Raees, SRK met Harpreet Kaur, a female cab driver from Mumbai. A video shared by Red Chillies Entertainment on YouTube shows Ms Kaur's story, along with her meeting with the superstar. The video promotes a line from the film - "koi dhandha chhota nahin hota" - and aims to encourage people to take pride in what they do, along the lines of Shah Rukh's character in the film, boot-legger Raees Alam.

Almost five-and-a-half-minutes long, the video first shows Ms Kaur talking about her life, what people said to discourage her from taking up a job as cab driver and why she went ahead with it anyway. "Kaam koi bhi ho, chhota nahi ho sakta. Sirf soch humari chhoti hai bas (No job is small. It's only our mindset that is)," she says in the video.

She also talks about how she was inspired by her father, who was also a driver, to take up the job. "Mujhe freedom mil gaya, sabse achhi baat (I got freedom, that's the best thing)," she says. The video also shows her husband and mother-in-law speaking in support of Ms Kaur and her desire to work.

The video then shows Shah Rukh Khan himself meeting Ms Kaur. We won't tell you what happens and let you watch the video to find out. Here's what SRK tweeted less than hour ago:
