Earlier this week, Shah Rukh Khan flew off to New York to tape for Netflix show, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman. On May 16th, legendary talk show host David Letterman engaged in a candid and memorable conversation with the beloved cinematic icon who has won a billion hearts around the world, Shah Rukh Khan. The show will be presented as a stand-alone special on Netflix and combines two interests for which Letterman is renowned: in-depth conversations with extraordinary people, and in-the-field segments expressing his curiosity and humor.
Ahead of the conversation, Shah Rukh Khan said, “I’ve watched David Letterman’s late-night talk show for years and I’m a huge fan of his style of interviewing. I’m thrilled, and honoured to share my story with him. That this is on Netflix is even more special – I’m working with the team on various projects and it’s always been exciting partnering with them.”
After interviewing Shah Rukh Khan in front of a live audience, Letterman said, “The best part of this job that Netflix has been happy to provide for me is to meet people. And after each one of these sessions I think to myself, it is a very smart, very lovely person from whom I have learned things. You would maybe be at the top of that list.”
Shah Rukh took to Twitter to share a photo and wrote, “No more footprints…this is The Abominable Snowman!! Before BatMan & SpiderMan, there is Mr. LetterMan @Letterman Thx for ur generosity.
