Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan set Twitter on fire when he shared a picture of meeting British-Pakistani singer Zayn Malik at the Asian Awards in London, becoming one of the most retweeted pictures of that year.

SRK had uploaded the photo on his Twitter account with nothing but praises for the former One Direction band member. "This kid is so cool. May Allah bless him. Dinner time at the Asian Awards," he captioned the black and white click.

And people seemed to love it, with it fast becoming the top trending share in India. The Zero star spoke positive words of Zayn while replying to a fan on Twitter, "He (Zayn) is extremely sweet. Made me a huge hit with my kids by doing a pic with me," he said.
Meanwhile, Zayn, in an interview with Elle, mentioned how his opinion about the Bollywood superstar changed greatly after he met him.

The Pillow Talk crooner said, "I personally wasn't a huge fan until I met him. I realised how humble he is. Really showed a different side to him. He always came across as slightly arrogant in the movies to me but when I met him in real life, he was so nice. He just completely changed my opinion of him."

Zayn, who is dating American-Palestinian model Gigi Hadid once again, also revealed that he is a huge fan of SRK's starrer Devdas. "Bollywood is so impeccable. If you ever get a chance to watch a good Bollywood movie, watch Devdas. Have you seen Devdas? It's got Shah Rukh Khan in it. You know who Shah Rukh Khan is?” he praised during the interview.
