Shah Rukh Khan as always was at his wittiest best when he spoke at the 2017 TED conference on Thursday. The audiences went head over heels at Vancouver, Canada to get a glimpse of the Superstar.
He kept the conversation interesting by talking on his persona of the ‘King of Romance’ to how the world has changed following the arrival of the internet.
He spoke so well that as per the reports in Business Insider goes, he was apparently the funniest speaker at TED 2017 up until now.
He playfully portrayed himself as an aging movie star grappling with the changes around him.
Khan will soon be launching the Indianized version of the show and will do a debut in India where he will play the role of curator Chris Anderson. Chances are the show will be in Hindi.
During his TedTalks he also said, “For years, I’ve been a huge fan of TED Talks,” Khan said, referring to the conference’s freely shared videos in which brilliant and accomplished people dive concisely into captivating concepts.
Furthermore, Khan, at his philosophical best, drew a parallel between a movie star and life. The report quotes him as saying, “Humanity is a lot like me. It’s an aging movie star, grappling with all the newness, wondering whether she got it right.”
To end the show with a bang he also did a short performance on his popular track ‘Lungi Dance‘ from Rohit Shetty’s 2013 action comedy Chennai Express. The song has almost become a cultural marker for India as Deepika Padukone also performed on the same at a couple of global talk shows and also at the Indian premiere of her Hollywood debut film, DJ Caruso’s action ensemble xXx: Return of Xander Cage.
