Unveiling the most anticipated photo from his annual calendar shoot, fashion photographer Dabboo Ratnani shared a monochrome image of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan.
Ratnani took to his Instagram handle and shared the photo along with the caption, “Once You Become Fearless, Life Becomes Limitless. Invincible and Charismatic Shah Rukh Khan For #dabbooratnanicalendar @iamsrk(sic).”
The picture, which was a top angle close-up shot of Shah Rukh, had him posing shirtless, with only his shoulders and face visible in the photo. For the shoot, the My Name is Khan actor sported an intense smouldering expression, looking straight into the camera.
Ratnani’s post garnered more than 14,000 likes within an hour of being shared, with many fans leaving heart and fire emojis for the star in the comments section.
The snap comes after the celebrity photographer unveiled pictures of Alia Bhatt, Kiara Advani, Sunny Leone, Vijay Deverakonda, Abhishek Bachchan, Vicky Kaushal, Tara Sutaria, Ananya Panday, Vidya Balan, Saif Ali Khan and more.
Meanwhile, the Baadshah of Bollywood took to Twitter to congratulate the Indian women’s team hockey coach Sjoerd Marijne on the country’s historic win over Australia at the Tokyo Olympics on Monday.
The team, led by Rani Rampal defeated Australia 1-0 in the quarterfinal in Tokyo to advance to the semifinals for the first time in the Olympic Games.
A powerful drag-flick from Gurjit Kaur off a penalty corner in the 22nd minute sealed Australia’s defeat. The goal gave India the lead in the match, which they maintained till the end.
Marijne, the women’s team coach, posted a group selfie with his team. “Sorry family, I’m coming again later (smiling face emoji and red heart),” he wrote on Twitter.
Shah Rukh, who portrayed the role of Kabir Khan, the coach of the Indian women’s hockey team in the 2007 hit movie Chak De India, quoted Marijne’s tweet and wrote, “Haan haan no problem. Just bring some Gold on your way back….for a billion family members. This time Dhanteras is also on 2nd Nov. From: Ex-coach Kabir Khan(sic).”
Marijne came up with an intelligent response to Shah Rukh’s tweet. “Thank you for all the support and love. We will give everything again. From: The Real Coach (winking emoji),” read his response.
On the work front, Shah Rukh, who was last seen in the 2018 film Zero directed by Anand L Rai, is now shooting for Pathan, which also features Deepika Padukone and John Abraham.
