Shah Rukh Khan – a name that rules over the hearts of millions across the globe, has never hesitated to please his fans in every way possible. He has a heart bigger than his filmography and a fan base that is spread throughout generations, who have watched him opening his arms for all the heroines. It is his charisma that makes everyone wish to see or meet him in person for once in their lifetime.
But unfortunately, meeting the Badshah of Bollywood is as difficult as being lucky. His fans wait throughout the year either to see him on the silver screen or outside Mannat, when he comes out to greet everyone on his birthday. Some crazy ones even follow him to all of his public appearances or shooting spots.
There are stories where Shahrukh has personally met a lot of fans in order to fulfill their last wish and this time it was Amrit Karan, who tweeted SRK for straight 142 days with a request to meet his brother, Raju, who suffers from cerebral palsy.

After tweeting for days, Amrit realized that he had to do something special for SRK’s attention as the superstar receives millions of messages every day with so many requests. That was when he turned on the camera in front of his family and recorded a video in which Raju praised Shahrukh’s looks and expressed his desire to meet him. It was Amrit’s love for his brother that reached King Khan.
While it did melt my heart too, Raju’s prayers were finally answered when Shah Rukh Khan responded with a promise that he will do something to speak to Raju.
Sorry Amrit I hadn’t seen your video. Please give my regards to mummyji & I will figure out & speak to RAJU soon. https://t.co/hBQvmLqHgQ

Although Raju’s mother was not even expecting Shahrukh to see this video, all that she didn’t know is the fact that SRK loves his fans unlike anyone else and this is why people still adore him the most.
Here are some of Amrit’s previous tweets in which he posted the pictures of Raju every day; while he was watching his favorite actor’s films and even singing an old song ‘Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman’. Going through the thread will give you a fair idea of SRK’s magic as well.
Day 1 : @iamsrk Love from my elder brother Raju who has Cerebral Palsy. He is a huge fan and wants to meet you. I'm going to tweet everyday from today until you agree to meet him 🙂 #RajuMeetsShahrukh pic.twitter.com/6omHv8HafP

Of course, it all now depends on Shahrukh himself. He is one of the busiest actors who work for 14-15 hours a day. But if we go by his previous efforts, then there is definitely a fair chance of SRK taking out some time to turn Raju’s dream into reality.
Along with that, the world also deserves more brothers like Amrit.
