“I just want to be queen of Badminton like how he is the king of Bollywood.”
India’s badminton star, Saina Nehwal, has more than once professed her love for Shahrukh Khan.
The world number one badminton player absolutely admires SRK for being ‘the smartest and the sexiest actor in Bollywood’.
She even credits the Baadshah’s films for helping her sail through to the finals at the All-England Open in March 2015.
Having just exited the Japan Open, Saina has returned home for some family time.
She has obviously been getting updates on her favourite actor and asks to meet him in person!
Saina tweets her endearing fan request to SRK:
@iamsrk Hello sir got to know ur shooting for ur film in Hyderabad would love to meet u ??

The Bollywood superstar replies and is equally keen to meet the ace shuttler!
He says: “Please say when you are free will fix up immediately.”
So Saina suggests a place and time for their ‘date’: “Sir can we meet tomorrow let me know I will come. I live in Hyderabad.”
Being the gentleman that he is, SRK offers to confirm their meet over the phone, saying: “Will call you at night and fix up a good time for you to come. Will be lovely to see you.”
Though Saina’s final reply is just a short message (‘sure sir thank u’), we can totally imagine her jumping up and down over the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet her B-town crush in person!
The 25-year-old has recently expressed her ambition to rule badminton, drawing inspiration from SRK.
She says: “I just want to be queen of Badminton like how he is the king of Bollywood.
“I am the best in Badminton, I am the world number one…if I play my best, I will be unbeatable.”
We cannot wait to see the pair snap a selfie together!
