Who isn’t thrilled to see Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan on the big screen? While SRK was last seen in Aanand L. Rai Zero (2018), the last release of Aamir was that of Vijay Krishna Acharya Hindostan thugs (2018). While the excitement for their returns is at an all time high, we’ll take you back to the days when the two stars were in awe.
Wondering what could leave both Khans bewitched at the same time? Well, there is a bit of magic involved – otherwise, trust me, it wouldn’t have been possible. This incident took place in 2017 during a Diwali party hosted by SRK which saw Bollywood biggies in attendance. From Aamir to Kunal Kohli, the guest list was quite long.
Speaking about Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan’s Diwali party in 2017, the powerful Bollywood couple invited a famous magician, Karan Singh, to entertain their guest. At the said party, Karan dazzled Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh with a card trick.
Aamir Khan, sitting next to Shah Rukh Khan, remembers the turn of all those who arrived late. The 3 Idiots actor is heard telling Gauri Khan, Kunal Kohli and others about how the magician asked him to think of a card and Shah Rukh to choose a number.
Continuing further, Aamir says he chose King of Hearts, and Shah Rukh chose number 24. The actor added that when he removed the 24th card – from the deck that the magician didn’t touch – he turned out to be the King of Hearts.
Aamir’s expression and excitement in his voice proves how amazed he was by Karan Singh’s talent. SRK, too, looked blown away when the incident was reported.
Shortly after Shah Rukh Khan’s 2017 Diwali party, the magician took his official Facebook handle and shared the video of Aamir Khan telling the guest about the trick. Karan Singh shared the video, with a caption that read, “NEW VIDEO: I’ve built my reputation on figuring out people’s passwords. In the Magic Circle, I built my reputation on a card trick, the holy grail of card magic and more for magicians. Showing it to Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan, among others, and having them highly commended is very, very humbling. Check it out, share it around ???? Want to see what they’re talking about?
