January 19 : Shah Rukh Khan is back on social media. After four months, the superstar returned to Instagram. Though its an ad that he has posted, yet fans welcomed him back with love and support, so much so that the post received more than seven lakh views.
After a gap of four months, Shah Rukh Khan shared a commercial for an electronic brand on his Instagram page today, in which he is featured with his wife Gauri Khan. The commercial opened with Shah Rukh driving a luxury car and reaches a lavish bungalow. He makes himself comfortable on a couch and switches on a rollable television that complements the mesmerising view from the bungalow. Soon after, Gauri walks in and joins Shah Rukh.
The video received more than 7.7 lakh views within just an hour. Fans were excited to see him back on social media. A fan took to the comments section and wrote, “The king is back, finally,” while another commented, “Very happy to see your post. I love you.” Yet another wrote, “Good to see SRK's post after so long... Love SRK always.”
Shah Rukh Khan had not posted anything on his social media handles ever since his son Aryan Khan was arrested in a drugs case. The superstar’s
last post on Instagram was on September 19, last year, when he shared a picture of Lord Ganesh, and wrote, “May Lord Ganesha’s blessings remain with all of us until we see him again next year… Ganpati Bappa Morya!”
Shah Rukh Khan was also been away from the limelight since Aryan was arrested in the drugs-on-cruise case. The 24-year-old was released on bail in October after three weeks in jail.
Before he took a break from work when Aryan was arrested, Shah Rukh was working on his comeback film Pathan, which also starred Deepika Padukone and John Abraham. Helmed by Siddharth Anand, Pathan is bankrolled by Yash Raj Films. Back in September last year, Shah Rukh Khan was reportedly working on two projects simultaneously. While he was shooting for Pathan, he had also started work on South director Atlee's untitled film. Shah Rukh was last seen in 2018 film Zero, which bombed at the box office.
