Shah Rukh Khan's special episode with popular American host David Letterman has finally dropped on Netflix, and the superstar has revealed a lot of interesting details about his life in the show. From talking about his family to sharing how he achieved success and fulfilled his dreams, SRK reveals many unknown things for fans in the hour-long conversation.
What will come as a shock to many is the superstar's revelation that he was once arrested in initial days and had to spend a few hours in prison. Shah Rukh Khan recalled he got into a fight with an Editor for spreading false and insensitive rumors about him and a co-star.
Talking to Letterman, Shah Rukh Khan said, "I was new (in the film industry), so I used to react to every news item -whatever appeared. And thankfully, there was no social media back then. Just the magazines and stuff. I got very angry and I called up the editor and I said, ‘You wrote this'. He said, ‘But listen can you just take it... it's just a joke'. So I said, ‘I don't find it funny'. So I went down to the office and I misbehaved a lot and while I was shooting for the film cops came. They sat down very sweetly and said we have a few questions to ask you'. I said, 'do you want me to pack and we can chat in my car?' Because I always assume anyone who meets me is a fan (laughs). They said, "no, we want you to come in our car!"
They took him to the police station and when he saw the small prison cell, he pleaded with the cops to let him go.
SRK further added, "It was a small little prison. With all, you know, human feces and ugh... it was really bad, now I'm in jail, and I'm not scared. Now you be very scared."
The episode of My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, featuring SRK, is available on Netflix.
