“Arre maine bhi kuch nahi khaya”, meaning, “Hey! I haven’t even had anything to eat yet.”

The SRK reply to the tweet sent by Antonio on 2nd November has attracted lots of likes and replies from SRK fans.

Antonio was also there to wish SRK his personal birthday wishes.

In an exclusive interview with DESIblitz, Antonio confessed that is favourite Bollywood actor was Shahrukh Khan and also that Priyanka Chopra is his ideal woman. His favourite SRK film is the 2005 release Paheli because he adores the magic of King Khan in this movie.

Born in a Punjabi family in the UK, Antonio is on his journey to rising success as a British Asian actor. 

Starting his career in TV shows such as Skins (Channel 4) and Doctors (BBC), Antonio Aakeel moved into films. He starred in City of Tiny Lights with Riz Ahmed and The Hungry (2017).

He appears in three upcoming movies which are in pre-production. Starring as Nitin Ahuja in the Tomb Raider reboot, Omar in Eaten by Lions and Ben in Granada Nights.

Shahrukh Khan appeared in two movies in 2017, namely, Jab Harry met Sejal and Raees.

He is currently working on new projects for 2018 and 2019, including Koochie Koochie Hota Hai, where SRK lends his voice as ‘Rocky’ in this animated version of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Operation Khukri slated to release in 2019, where SRK plays an Indian soldier in a historical visit to a UN peacekeeping mission in Sierra Leone which involved Indian soldiers.

As for the tweet from Antonio Aakeel and the reply from SRK, let’s hope one day they might share some ‘chai and cake’ maybe in a movie together!
