The ‘God of Cricket,’ Sachin Tendulkar, is one of those celebrities who is known to be quite active on social media and when he took to Instagram to share a selfie with none other than the ‘King of Bollywood,’ Shah Rukh Khan, the photograph instantly went viral.
Sachin posted the epic picture on his Instagram account on Monday night, with a quirky caption ‘Jab SRK met SRT.’ The caption is inspired by Shah Rukh’s film ‘Jab Harry met Sejal.’
Tendulkar and Khan met each other last week at Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta’s pre-engagement party, where they happened to post the selfie together wearing ethnic cap.
Sachin’s post has gone viral all over the social media, earning thousands of hits and comments. Their fans couldn’t help but began posting special comments on the selfie the moment it was uploaded. “Two legends in one frame”, “million dollar picture,” “Jab SRK met GOD,” “Wow stars of India,” “Two kings…..great” and “My two idols whom I have looked up to from childhood” were only some of the many comments that showered love on the two legends. The internet, it seems, cannot get enough of this iconic selfie.
Until this selfie post in the year, last time when the duo had eye struck the whole social media was during the release of much-awaited film on Sachin Tendulkar’s life – Sachin: A Billion Dreams’. Sachin had garnered numerous good wishes from prominent people, however, it was SRK’s good luck post that stood out, reported newsd.
I believed, when u did well I would 2 & when u didn’t, I will fail. Like a billion others I miss my guiding lite. ATB for the film,” Shah Rukh tweeted.
In reply, Tendulkar had tagged Shah Rukh’s post and replied, “Zindagi me haar na hoti to koi kabhi jeet ta nahi aur kuch seekhta bhi nahi. Touched by your words like a billion others, love u @iamsrk :-)”
