Here's what SRK wrote in his reply to author Paulo Coelho.

Author Paulo Coelho has been a fan of Shah Rukh Khan for the longest time. Every now and then, he shows his appreciation for the Indian actor and he repeatedly tells his fans, that how they need to watch SRK-starrer 'My Name is Khan' which was directed by Karan Johar. On Thursday, the 'Brida' author reshared a video which was posted by SRK, showcasing the huge crowd that gathered outside 'Mannat' after the release of 'Pathaan'.

"King. Legend. Friend. But above all great actor. (for those who don't know him in the West, I strongly suggest "My name is Khan - and I am not a terrorist")," Coelho wrote on Twitter.

Replying to the author, SRK said: ""You are always too kind my friend. Let us meet up sooner than soon! Bless you."

In 2020, 'The Alchemist' author Coelho had called 'Kaamyab' "the tragedy of art". For the unversed, the movie was produced by SRK's Red Chillies Entertainment.

SRK had replied to Coelho back then as well, saying: "Saw the film when it was doing festival rounds and it touched a chord with the whole team at Red Chillies Entertainment. Am so moved you appreciate. It's a sad truth that character actors get forgotten. Look after yourself my friend and be safe and healthy."

In 2015, Coelho had praised SRK's 'My Name is Khan', saying: " @karanjohar @iamsrk Congrats for "My name is Khan" . I wish we could see more of your movies in Europe. I had to wait 6 yrs to watch this."

SRK in his reply back then had said: "@paulocoelho send me your address sir I will supply you all indian films as they release. We read u as soon as u write...v r blessed. Thanx."

SRK returned to the big screen with 'Pathaan' after a hiatus of more than four years.

'Pathaan' which also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham is raking in the moolah at the box office, and ever since its release, the film has minted more than Rs 350 crore at the domestic box office.

SRK will next be seen in 'Jawan' and 'Dunki'. Both these films are slated to release in 2023.
