Shahrukh Khan offers to strip in Goa!
Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan Wednesday turned an otherwise drab official function into a rib-tickling affair by offering to strip and reveal his bermudas on stage at the inauguration of the 42nd IFFI
Shahrukh Khan was the chief guest at the inauguration of the 11-day International Film Festival of India (IFFI). The actor was at his hilarious best and had Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting Ambika Soni and Goa Chief Minister Digambar Kamat in splits by threatening to strip down to his beach wear, which he claimed he was wearing beneath his formal slacks. “I wanted to wear my bermudas, but then chose to wear my suit. But I am still wearing bermudas beneath. Do you want me to take my pants off,” he asked, leaving the 1,000 strong audience laughing their guts out. “The younger girls (referring to compere Tisca Chopra and actor Rituparna Sengupta) and Ambikaji are saying ‘take it off, take it off’!” Khan chided in banter, after being at the receiving end of Soni’s playful jibe at him in her introductory speech.
