While Aruna was in the hospital, Twitterati was onto something good. Users shared her picture and urged Shah Rukh to meet his fan. As the hashtag caught Khan’s attention, he reached out.
Aruna’s “source of strength” sent her a heartwarming message through a video and told her that once she gets better he will meet her. “I’m made to understand through your son Akshat and daughter Priyanka that you are fighting with an illness. I want to say this that me, my whole family, all our friends whoever knows about you, we are praying for your wellness,” he said in the video.
“You are in a state where meeting you is perhaps not a possibility. I know this for a fact, with the positivity that you carry around that you will get well soon and we will meet very soon”, he added. He also asked Aruna’s children Priyanka and Akshat if a telephonic conversation can be arranged with the doctor’s permission.
Shah Rukh Khan also promised Aruna that when they meet, he will perform for her. “I promise you when I meet up I will do your favourite song of mine,” he said.
Shah Rukh won hearts of his fans and social media users with this video and is being praised for this kind gesture.
