Trust Shah Rukh Khan to be the wittiest in the room, any time right? Even when he is in a conversation with the CEO of Amazon, Jeff Bezoz. Yeah, it’s a trick only he has mastered and we are all for it! Jeff was in the country to meet all the top creators and artists in India. SRK and director Zoya Akhtar were in conversation with him on stage and the who’s-who of the entertainment industry were in attendance.

Speaking about his meeting with SRK backstage, Jeff said that he thought the Don actor was the most humble person. While that statement was received by a round of applause from the audience, Shah Rukh was quick to add that he was that way only because his last few films didn’t do well. Now, this statement of his almost had Jeff choking on the sip of his water he was having right then.

Have a look at this video the Amazon founder shared:

Close friend and colleague, Farhan Akhtar and his girlfriend Shibani Dandekar also laugh along to this comment of his.

Not only this, Shah Rukh even made Jeff reenact the popular dialogue from Don, ‘Don ko pakadna mushkil hi nahin, namumkin hai’ and Jeff nails it, alright!

Have a look at the video Riteish Deshmukh shared on his Twitter:

Another trait of Shah Rukh that we totes love is his honesty. While talking with Jeff about shopping online, he confessed that he can order books and other things, but he is still unsure about ordering underwear. He said, “I have a confession to make…I am still not comfortable in shopping underwear online. It is a boy thing.

This sure was one fun conversation, and what fun the audience must have had!
