Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who recently attended the Red Sea International Film Festival, left the ‘Basic Instinct’ actress Sharon Stone gasping at the event after she realized that it was him who was sitting next to her all the while.
The ‘Pathaan’ actor was recently honoured at the fest for his contributions to Indian cinema, as his name was announced and he stood up, Sharon was in total disbelief upon noticing him. In a video that is going viral on social media, Sharon can be seen clapping and seemed to mouth “oh my god”.
