Shahrukh Khan: The only word I know properly in Tamil is ‘Thalaiva’!

The Kochadaiiyaan music launch had many special moments

Apart from seeing the power of the ultimate superstar Rajinikanth, the Kochadaiiyaan music launch had quite a few highlights. The fans who gathered in huge numbers made this event a success, while Shahrukh Khan added to the star power. Deepika Padukone who debuts with this film in Tamil looked gorgeous in a Sabyasachi saree and added the glam element. While Dippy sung praises for her film’s hero and his debutant director daughter Soundarya Rajinikanth Ashwin, it was SRK’s small speech that caught our attention. King Khan said in his most modest tone, ” The only word I know properly in Tamil is ‘Thalaiva’. And that’s the reason why I’m here. I have come to be part of this launch as a fan, as a friend, as a seeker of knowledge. When I came to Mumbai 24 years ago, I remember watching Rajini sir from a distance, while he practiced his famous cigarette flip in front of a mirror. Looking at him practice, I learnt that working hard is the key to success.”

Well, we’re sure this compliment must be one of the few special ones for the megastar.
