Releasing on Netflix on May 31, this conversation between Shah Rukh Khan and David Letterman will give Bollywood fans a chance to get to know the star better
Shah Rukh Khan‘s fame extends beyond just India. The actor has fans all over the globe, but somehow has always managed to keep his private life away from the public lens. That probably explains why his interviews always gain lots of interest, and Netflix’s latest offering is one you can’t miss out on if you’ve grown up watching his iconic Bollywood films. On May 16, world-renowned talk show host David Letterman engaged in a candid conversation with theKhan on his Netflix special, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman. The series will include special interviews with eminent personalities for up to an hour and will combine two things Letterman’s talks are known for: in-depth conversations with extraordinary people, and in-the-field segments expressing his curiosity and humour.
Shah Rukh Khan will be the first Indian celebrity to appear on Letterman’s show, which has, in the past, also included Barack Obama, George Clooney, Malala Yousafzai, Jay-Z and Jerry Seinfeld. What’s more, this special interview will also mark Shah Rukh Khan’s Netflix debut. After interviewing the superstar in front of a live audience, Letterman said, “The best part of this job that Netflix has been happy to provide for me is to meet people. And after each one of these sessions I think to myself, it is a very smart, very lovely person from whom I have learned things. You would maybe be at the top of that list.” Shah Rukh Khan also took to his social media to thank David Letterman for inviting him on his show and for his generosity.
