The King Khan of Bollywood continues to win over hearts of Pakistani celebrities. After Reema Khan shared a throwback of the 2006 Zee Cine Awards, reminiscing the time she shared the stage with Shah Rukh Khan and Preity Zinta, actor Atiqa Odho has also expressed her love for the Pathaan star in a recent post on social media.

Taking to Instagram, the Dasht actor shared a picture of her encounter with Shah Rukh at the sets of Devdas in 2002. She also penned down a heartfelt message praising the superstar for his affectionate personality.

"Meeting Shah Rukh Khan on the Devdas set many years ago was such a pleasure. A celebrated film star whose humble, polite, caring and above all has roots and family in Peshawar with whom he stays in touch. Such a sweet and friendly person. I'm happy that his film Pathaan has done so well," wrote Atiqa.

Before concluding her note, Atiqa then conveyed her disappointment at the political regulations that have created hurdles for artists in India and Pakistan. "I wish politics wouldn't restrict artists from working together as collaborative work would engage a larger global audience for both sides for sure," she shared.

Earlier this month, Reema also applauded the Dilwale actor on her Instagram account. "A wonderful memory of Zee Cine Awards 2006 with Preity Zinta and Shah Rukh Khan, who is a matchless, distinguished and shining star of the filmdom.
Even now, his career has reached a sky-high pinnacle," penned the Bulandi actor. She then proceeded to wish Shah Rukh all the best for his then upcoming action-thriller film. "I wish him good luck with his new upcoming venture Pathaan!"
