Chandigarh, January 25

Amul sure knows how to honour people. India’s most popular dairy cooperative decided to dedicate the latest edition of its iconic cartoon to India’s legendary star Shah Rukh Khan after the actor recently sent autographed photos of himself and a handwritten note of appreciation to an Egyptian travel agent who helped a fellow Indian.

Amul decided to honour the actor’s gesture with one of its own: a cartoon of Shah Rukh Khan and the Indian traveller, Professor Ashwini Deshpande. Cleverly captioned “Pardes me Swades Ka effect”, the cartoon has the actor holding an autographed photo in one hand a quill in the other while a delighted Deshpande stands in front of a pyramid.

‘Swades’ and ‘Pardes’ are two of Shah Rukh Khan’s movies.

It all started a few days ago when Professor Ashwini Deshpande took to Twitter to tell people about the Egyptian travel agent who readily helped her when she needed to transfer some money to him because she was from Shah Rukh Khan’s country. She tagged Shah Rukh Khan’s production house Red Chillis Entertainment in a second tweet days later to ask if they could arrange for an autographed photo of the actor to be sent to the obliging agent.

Why a handwritten note from Shah Rukh Khan to an Egyptian travel agent is winning hearts online

Here are those tweets.

Meanwhile, Deshpande tweeted Amul’s ad saying: “As if the tweets going viral wasn't unreal enough, now this. Appearing in the iconic @Amul_Coop ad that too with @iamsrk!! No words or emojis can capture what I am feeling right now”.
