Shah Rukh Khan gets rare hug from ‘thug’ Aamir Khan ahead of 53rd birthday celebrations


Aamir Khan, the new thug of India, has made the birthday celebrations of Shah Rukh Khan extra special by giving him the much-needed hug as the latter turns 53 on 2 November. Dubbed as Mr Perfectionist, Aamir is all geared up for the release of his upcoming thriller Thugs of Hindostanwhich also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh among others. The teaser song of Manzoore Khuda was released on Wednesday and the video went viral in no time.

A day later Shah Rukh Khan took to his social media pages to post a photo of himself with Aamir Khan, with whom he hasn’t shared the screen space till now despite being in the industry for nearly three decades. In fact, the two have never been known for getting along with each other. But it seems their differences of the past are over as the caption of Shah Rukh’s post explicitly implied. King Khan wrote, “Hug from the Thug….!! Beat that!”

Hug from the Thug….!! Beat that!

In the photo, while Aamir is dressed in a white T-shirt, Shah Rukh Khan is posing for camera while attired in black hoody sweatshirt. With Aamir’s hand around the King Khan’s shoulder, it’s clear that two have buried their past differences for good.

Seeing their Bollywood icons together, their fans went hysterical. One fan wrote, “The most beautiful picture of the day.” Another commented, “Oh my my both together… Appreciate it.”

Shah Rukh celebrates his 53rd birthday today and a visit by the new thug of India to wish him on the occasion is surely not what the fans of SRK would have expected. But as Shah Rukh wrote, there is no way you can beat this hug from thug.

Shah Rukh too is awaiting the release of his next film Zero, whose poster was released on Wednesday. His film releases on 21 December.
