An Indian man’s heartfelt story of how a meeting with Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan changed his life is going viral on social media.
On March 5, London-based game developer Shahid Kamal Ahmad tweeted about randomly meeting King Khan six years ago.
Ahmad wrote how he wasn’t a fan of SRK when he was young and a cynic. However, his perception of the Bollywood superstar changed when he interacted with him and was shocked by his humbleness and decency.
Not only was Ahmad impressed by SRK, he said his life dramatically changed after the meeting. SRK taught him about the “power of service” and why it matters.
Because of the humility SRK emanated, Ahmad said he decided to change his way of looking at things, bringing that attitude to all the future dealings in his life.
As if to add colours in Kamal’s beautiful story, the King Khan joined the Twitter thread and made a reply that must have made his day once again.
“I’d like to thank Shah Rukh for transforming my life from the lazy, arrogant guy I was to someone prepared to work harder than I imagined possible, to be kind, to listen, to be present and focused and to live life with passion and an attitude of service,” Kamal later said in an interview with Buzzfeed.
The story proves how decency, humility can change perspectives people hold about us.
