Shah Rukh Khan has achieved everything a movie star could possible wish for, including massive popularity and box office success. But he continues to add new accomplishments to his resume one by one. Shahrukh Khan recently travelled to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia for the second Red Sea International Film Festival. The actor attended the event along with other actors and celebrities from different countries. There were also Priyanka Chopra, Kajol, and AR Rahman in attendance. However, what had netizens’ attention was Hollywood star Sharon Stone’s reaction while sitting next to the star. She was seen gasping for ear as she murmured ‘oh my god’ when she saw SRK. Now, she has talked about her reaction.

Now, during a different event, Sharon discussed her response and the reasons behind her actions. She described the incident to the interviewer, saying, “Shah Rukh Khan was sitting two seats away from me and I wasn’t aware that he was there. She reenacted the gasping moment, saying, “And I reached forward and saw him. I am not very easily star struck because I know a lot of celebs, but I saw him and I was just like.”

While attending the event, Shahrukh Khan and American actress Sharon Stone were sat adjacent to one other, despite the weak lighting on the audience side due to the stage performance. After some time, the anchor eventually presented Shah Rukh to the crowd. In the video, Sharon gasps when Shah Rukh Khan is introduced to the audience before exclaiming, “Oh my God!” She is wearing a beige outfit and has black gloves on her hands. He sat down in a chair, and she gripped her chest. Shah Rukh watched her response and leaned down to say hello. They were seen on camera sharing “Namaste” as well.
Shah Rukh Khan at Red Sea Festival
On Thursday, Shah Rukh was given an honorary award at the Red Sea Film Festival in Jeddah. Actress Priyanka Chopra, who was in the audience with Sharon, applauded for Shah Rukh as he accepted. “I am truly honoured to receive this award from the Red Sea International Film Festival. It’s wonderful to be here among my fans from Saudi and the region who have always been huge supporters of my films. I’m looking forward to celebrating the region’s talent and being a part of this exciting film community. Film is a unifier because it transits shared human experiences across cultures. You like a film because it stirs your emotions, be it in whatever language or culture it is from. And Thank God for subtitles. It brings all that is human to the fore and it shows perhaps better than any other art, how despite the immense diversity of the world we live in, our basic pursuits and emotions are the same,” he said after receiving the award.
