Shah Rukh Khan’s TED Talk has been a conversation-starter ever since we got a glimpse of it. The Badshah of Bollywood has always been known for his sharp wit and humour and his TED talk at Vancouver was no exception. That perfect TED Talk was not extempore and Shah Rukh Khan did prepare really hard for it. He was as anxious as any of us before taking an exam and was as nervous. How do we know? Shah Rukh Khan’s manager, Pooja Dadlani posted a video of him preparing for the talk on her Twitter handle with the description, ‘Check out this humorous take of @iamsrk ‘s TED Talk… even watching him prep is a delight!’

When Shah Rukh Khan noticed her tweet, he quickly responded to it saying ‘U have made my practice sessions public!!!  Now everyone will know I am not smart’, to which Pooja Dadlani responded ‘On the contrary, this will reinstate how smart you are @iamsrk! The world needs to see more of that! Even ur rehearsal had no mistakes!’

U have made my practice sessions public!!! Now everyone will know I am not smart.
