Shah Rukh Khan gets the biggest ovation on David Letterman's 'My Next Guest Needs No Introduction', Netflix drops first teaser
Netflix India just dropped the teaser of David Letterman's show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction featuring Shah Rukh Khan. Superstar SRK had engaged in a candid interview with American talk show host David Letterman in May and now the episode is all set to release.
SRK had earlier said that he was thrilled and honoured to share his story with one of the most famous talk show personalities. "I've watched David Letterman's late-night talk show for years and I'm a huge fan of his style of interviewing. I'm thrilled, and honoured to share my story with him. That this is on Netflix is even more special - I'm working with the team on various projects and it's always been exciting partnering with them," he had said.
The teaser is spectacular as it shows glimpses of SRK's appearance on the show and then David's trip to India. In the teaser, David reveals that the longest ovation on his show so far was for SRK. He calls him the biggest superstar of all times, watch the video here:
Shah Rukh had also taken to Twitter, where he shared a photograph of himself along with Letterman. He thanked the talk show host for making him feel like himself. "No more footprints... this is The Abominable Snowman!! Before Batman and Spiderman, there is Mr. Letterman thanks for your generosity. Had too much fun being interviewed. Not because it was about me but because you were kind enough to make me feel I can be me. You are an inspiration sir," he captioned the image.
The show will be presented as a stand-alone special on Netflix and combines two interests for which Letterman is known for -- in-depth conversations with extraordinary people, and in-the-field segments expressing his curiosity and humour. After interviewing SRK 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."
