On New Year’s Eve Ashwini tweeted about how the Egyptian travel agent made an exception for her in a tweet which has been going viral since, she wrote “Needed to transfer money to a travel agent in Egypt. Was having problems with the transfer. He said: you are from the country of @iamsrk. I trust you. I will make the booking; you pay me later. For anywhere else, I wouldn’t do this. But anything for @iamsrk & he did.”
Both the travel agent and Ashwini received a lot of praise from fans on the internet. Later on January 10, she posted an update on the same saying, she and her husband did manage to meet the travel agent in Egypt; and requesting Shah Rukh’s production house Red Chillies Entertainment for a signed picture of the star, she tweeted, “My husband & I finally met the man in this story today! I told him about the tsunami of good cheer his story generated. @RedChilliesEnt: he would be delighted with a photo of @iamsrk, autographed in his daughter’s name if possible. Please DM me if this can be arranged, thanks!”
And on Saturday, the professor took to Twitter once again to inform, that the star sent not just one but three autographed copies of his pictures, with a handwritten note from the man himself. “A very happy ending to this story. 3 photos signed by SRK arrived today, one with the nicest message for the Egyptian travel agent, one for his daughter & one for mine @Ketaki_Varma,” tweeted Ashwini. She also thanked Shah Rukh’s manager Pooja Dadlani for making it possible. “Thanks @pooja_dadlani for getting in touch & of course to @iamsrk for the gracious gesture,” the tweet concluded.
Fans are all praises and in awe of the Superstar’s sweet gesture. This has been one of the rare public ‘news’ from Shah Rukh Khan in the last few months. The star has been notably absent from the public eye since his son Aryan Khan was embroiled in a drugs case in October.
The actor is currently busy shooting for his upcoming action-adventure film Pathan, produced by Yash Raj Films, co-starring Deepika Padukone and John Abraham.
