Filmmaker Karan Johar is mighty impressed with Shah Rukh Khan's TED Talk. The entire video of SRK's TED Talk was uploaded on YouTube on Thursday, two weeks after SRK spoke in Vancouver. Praising Shah Rukh, Karan Johar wrote on Twitter: "Witty...intelligent ...spiritual and above all....just brilliant! No one owns a stage like you do Bhai!!!! Ted can talk but you SPEAK! (sic)" Shah Rukh shared the YouTube link along with a quote from the talk: "Create a world which is its own best lover." Karan Johar, 44, has directed Shah Rukh Khan in films like Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, My Name Is Khan and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham.
In 18 minutes, Shah Rukh Khan owned every person sitting in the auditorium with his words on humanity, which he said is "like me, an ageing movie star" grappling to stay in sync with the world which is continuously changing. Shah Rukh used several examples from his personal life to elucidate the negative impact social media can have on people and the lessons life taught him.
Shah Rukh Khan was last seen in Rahul Dholakia's Raees and his next film is with Imtiaz Ali, co-starring Anushka Sharma. He has also signed up for Aanand L Rai's next film.
