In his TED Talk 2017 speech, Shah Rukh Khan was not only at his wittiest best, but he also chose to address some never-before-touched-upon topics.
SRK, who is the first Indian actor to speak at TED Talks, addressed the audience with his speech on humanity, social media and much more in his own witty style. That’s not all, the actor also spoke about some depressing serious topics of his life, which he usually avoids talking about. SRK narrated an incident where he and his family suffered a lot because of utter nonsense rumour about his elder son, Aryan.
Shah Rukh Khan spoke, “Four years ago, my lovely wife Gauri and me decided to have a third child. It was claimed on the net that this child was the love child of our first child (Aryan Khan) who was 15 years old. Apparently, he had sowed his wild oats with a girl while driving his car in Romania. And yeah there was a fake video to go with it. And we were so disturbed as a family. My son who is 19 now, even when you say hello to him he says, ‘But bro, I didn’t even have a European driving license’.”
Shah Rukh Khan continued, “Yeah, in this new world slowly reality became virtual and virtual became real and I began to realise I cannot say what I thought. And humanity at this time completely identified with me.”
The Raees actor also spoke about social media and narrating a hilarious incident, SRK said, “I tried to put thought-provoking tweets on the Internet but could not get those acronyms which people used. LOL, ROFL and even ADIDAS. I was wondering why someone would write ADIDAS and I asked my daughter. She enlightened me and said ADIDAS now means, ‘All day I dream about s*x.’”
Shah Rukh Khan also gave a wonderful speech on humanity, love, social media and much more.
