Shah Rukh Khan absolutely stole the show on day four of the Lakme Fashion Week, as the showstopper. Walking the ramp, per detailed instructions given by good friend Karan Johar, Shah Rukh rocked the house in a stunning, loose-fitting creation, that was paired with a custom-designed sling.
Afterwards, in a way that only Shah Rukh can, he worked the crowd over via the mic, in a lengthy and free-wheeling session, wherein he thanked the audience, the sponsors, Manish, Bollywood, the models... Just about the whole of India.
As for his potential on the ramp, Shah Rukh self-deprecatingly said he's 'not tall enough and not handsome enough' to be a model, but thanked the audience for suffering him.
Throughout, he drew whistles, shrieks and cries of 'Marry me, Shah Rukh!'. But that's to be expected when you're talking about the King of Bollywood.
