Shah Rukh Khan hosted an impromptu online press conference on Friday evening when he posted this message on Twitter inviting his followers to send him questions:
yes ask me questions…will answer for the next 10 mins and then off to bed. dont know if i can answer each one but will try
Shah Rukh (who tweets under the handle @iamsrk) has over 96, 000 followers on the popular social networking site and was immediately flooded with questions and replies. The 10 minute answer window stretched into nearly an hour, filled with intriguing and sometimes cryptic glimpses into King Khan’s world.
Quirky highlights from what SRK himself referred to as …like [a] press conference but…without nonsensical controversies include:
-can shave all hair for a role
-can make boiled eggs
-will try and give up smoking
-remember i had a toy piano when i was a kid and miss it
-age expectancy 105
-anyone can work in India
-amitji and dilip kumar fav actors
The only topic that SRK didn’t address was anything related to the IPL (Indian Premier League), saying as he signed off for the night:
have a great nite. dont answer ipl questions cos people look at the wrong end of the answers. love u all and have a good life. dreams
Even after the Badshaah had signed off, fans continued to flood Twitter with messages for him, thanking him for his generosity in taking an hour to answer so many questions.
