- 'I love to talk,' said SRK
- 'I'll go if I have the time,' he said
- 'If it fits into my scheme of things,' he added
In November, Alan Rusbridger, formerly of The Guardian and currently principal of Lady Margaret Hall in Oxford, interrupted a Twitter exchange between Shah Rukh Khan and his Dear Zindagi co-star Alia Bhatt to ask:
can we tempt to to Oxford University to talk to our students at @lmhoxford? They love you (I'm the principal)— alan rusbridger (@arusbridger) November 28, 2016
This is happening, it would seem. And, Mr Rusbridger, of course your students love SRK. He recently delivered a TED Talk in Vancouver to a star-struck crowd, accompanied by the sort of fan activity India is accustomed to but TED Talks are most definitely not. He was mobbed at the University of South California where his son Aryan studies - Oxford will likely be no different. But dates, SRK needs dates.
Shah Rukh Khan is currently hard at work promoting his new film Jab Harry Met Sejal, co-starring Anushka Sharma and directed by Imtiaz Ali. He's also begun work on an untitled project helmed by Aanand L Rai, in which SRK's character is a dwarf.
