JAKARTA: Shah Rukh Khan rules over Bollywood and the hearts of his million and more fans all around the world- this much is widely acknowledged as a universal truth. His sheer charm, grace and wit, combined with that killer dimpled smile is enough to make women (and men too!) go weak in their knees.
His acting skills and sheer charisma are the stuff of legends. The man, whose sultanate has been unchallenged for a little more than two decades, is a terrific stage performer as well. We all read, heard and saw just how true this statement is, at the recently concluded ‘Temptations Reloaded’ concert held in Jakarta, Indonesia.
The concert saw mind-blowing, insanely high octane energy, futuristic flashes of pink, yellow, red and blue, laser lights, drums ablaze and total Bollywood style hungama, which created the perfect backdrop for the King – Shah Rukh Khan, at the Sentul International Convention Center, in Jakarta.
Shah Rukh Khan performed alongside Bollywood beauties Preity Zinta, Rani Mukerji and Bipasha Basu.
Befitting his Kingly status, Shah Rukh Khan made a grand entry on a super bike, making millions of fans swoon with excitement. SRK not only entertained the audiences with his performance, but also interacted with fans in a very emotional way.
Said the magnanimous superstar, “This time I didn’t get a chance to roam around in Jakarta. But I have always felt strongly that one can always tell how beautiful the place is by the people one meets there. Jakarta is a lovely place and the love that I got from the people there was my ‘feel good factor’. I say that because I have been rushing around these days from film festival to movie shoot and then to Jakarta. It has been a mad rush, but the love I got at Jakarta made it all worthwhile.”
The superstar had an ace up his sleeve, when he exclusively revealed why Temptations had been reloaded, and why the organisers chose Jakarta as the concert venue.
“Doing shows like this is a fine experience of being a part of the entertainment industry. Last time we did ‘Temptations’ was in 2004. The years after that I and all my friends who were a part of the show got busy. So we decided to start off again and that’s why it’s called ‘Temptations Reloaded’,” quipped Shah Rukh, in his trademark charming avatar.
