Watch: Shah Rukh Khan anchoring an old Doordarshan show is the best blast from the past on the internet today


Shah Rukh Khan has a legendary wit and he never fails to impress one and all by his sense of humour. We might feel that he has developed it over the years but in fact, even as a beginner before he became King Khan, he did not shy away from showing off his skill. An old video from his struggling days has surfaced on the internet and has gone viral. The video shows a very confident and articulate SRK stealing the show.

In the video, Shah Rukh can be seen anchoring a music show on Doordarshan along with a lady. He invited singer Kumar Sanu on stage but not without making a hilarious yet flattering comment. He invites the singer as the one who sings in Kishore Kumar’s voice. The lady replies that he does have a similar voice and way of singing but he also has his own style in the making.

It is a well-known fact that Shah Rukh started his acting career with television. He made a very successful television debut in Fauji and followed it up with Circus and then Wagle Ki Duniya finally making his Bollywood debut. Kumar Sanu and Shah Rukh both went on to become huge Bollywood stars and Sanu also sang quite a few songs for SRK in his films.

On the work front, SRK hasn’t signed any films yet after the debacle of Zero last year. However, yesterday at the launch event of his new TV show TED Talks India Nayi Baat he said that he will soon be coming out with something as he has been reading 3-4 scripts.
