Hyderabad: With a badminton racuqet in hand and a song on mind, superstar Shah Rukh met Indian ace Saina Nehwal on the sets of his upcoming film "Dilwale". The 49-year-old "Chennai Express" actor met Nehwal, 25, after she wished to meet him as he is filming the Rohit Shetty-directed comedy-drama in her hometown.
Shah Rukh took to Instagram and shared a picture with the badminton star, writing lyrics of the popular Mohammed Rafi-Asha Bhosle song, "Dhal Gaya Din Ho Gayi Sham" from the movie "Humjoli".
"Dhal gaya din (tuk). Ho gayi shaam (tuk)... Jaane doh jaana hai. Who all know this song from Humjoli? My tuk tuk moment with Saina."
In the picture, the duo is seen posing with a racquet, however, Nehwal's racquet is without any strings as Shah Rukh believes this is the only way to beat her at the game. "Made sure @NSaina had no strings in her racquet... Maybe the only way to beat her at badminton. You have a lovely family," he wrote alongside the picture. Nehwal shared a photo with the actor, writing, "Oh my God... Shahrukh sir you are such a nice person very happy to meet you... You made my day thank you so much."
Earlier, Nehwal had met Shah Rukh's "Dilwale" co-star Kajol and shared a picture with her.
The film releases on December 18.
