Chandigarh, January 23
Like many Shah Rukh Khan movies this real story had a happy ending too. At the heart of the story is an Egyptian travel agent and an Indian professor.
On New Year’s Eve an Indian professor Ashwini Deshpande tweeted about how an Egyptian travel agent made an exception for her about payment issues just because she was “from the country of Shah Rukh Khan”.
Needed to transfer money to a travel agent in Egypt. Was having problems with the transfer. He said: you are from the country of @iamsrk. I trust you. I will make the booking, you pay me later. For anywhere else, I wouldn’t do this. But anything for @iamsrk. & he did!#SRK is 👑

On January 10, Deshpande posted an update that she and her husband did manage to meet the travel agent in Egypt. Tagging Shah Rukh Khan and his
production house Red Chillies Entertainment Deshpande requested for a signed picture of the star. She tweeted:
My husband & I finally met the man in this story today! I told him about the tsunami of good cheer his story generated. @RedChilliesEnt: he would be delighted with a photo of @iamsrk, autographed in his daughter’s name if possible. Please DM me if this can be arranged, thanks! 😊 https://t.co/Ea9nckNqFm pic.twitter.com/q44KeOVTw7

The Badshah of Bollywood didn’t disappoint. On Saturday, the professor again took to Twitter to inform that Shah Rukh took note of the incident and sent an autographed picture and a handwritten note of appreciation for his Egyptian fan, as well as autographed pictures for his daughter and the professor’s daughter too.
“A very happy ending to this story. 3 photos signed by SRK arrived today, one with the nicest message for the Egyptian travel agent, one for his daughter & one for mine @Ketaki_Varma,” tweeted
