Like many Shah Rukh Khan movies this real story had a happy ending too. At the heart of the story is an Egyptian travel agent and an Indian professor.

On New Year’s Eve an Indian professor Ashwini Deshpande tweeted about how an Egyptian travel agent made an exception for her about payment issues just because she was “from the country of Shah Rukh Khan”. 

On January 10, Deshpande posted an update that she and her husband did manage to meet the travel agent in Egypt. Tagging Shah Rukh Khan and his

production house Red Chillies Entertainment Deshpande requested for a signed picture of the star. She tweeted:

 The Badshah of Bollywood didn’t disappoint. On Saturday, the professor again took to Twitter to inform that Shah Rukh took note of the incident and sent an autographed picture and a handwritten note of appreciation for his Egyptian fan, as well as autographed pictures for his daughter and the professor’s daughter too.

  “A very happy ending to this story. 3 photos signed by SRK arrived today, one with the nicest message for the Egyptian travel agent, one for his daughter & one for mine @Ketaki_Varma,” tweeted

 

The handwritten note from the Bollwood star left Internet showering praises profuesly.

 So lovely!
