Shah Rukh Khan’s birthday is no less than a festival for his fans across the globe. Traditionally fans gather around the superstar’s residence Mannat in Mumbai to catch a glimpse of the actor and wish him on his special day. However, this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, fans won’t be able to do the same.
Does that mean his birthday this year will not be celebrated by SRKians? If you think so, you are in for quite a surprise as his fan club has planned to host a global virtual birthday bash for the Baadshah of Bollywood.
According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, a member of Shah Rukh’s fan club has said that fans will be cutting cakes at their homes and can join in the celebrations via live streaming. The report added that the midnight celebration will be followed by a virtual birthday party on Monday at 11 am with selfie booths, games, SRK quizzes, live interactions among the fans, and a few performances.
Apart from this, a few charitable activities like distributing 5555 Covid kits with masks and sanitisers, 5555 meals to the needy, visiting orphanages and old-age homes have also been planned for the special day.
Shah Rukh is currently with his family in the UAE, and had told his fans during a recent Q&A session, ‘iss baar ka pyaar thoda door se yaar (this time show your love from a distance).’
