New Delhi: Here is a chance for big-hearted Dilliwallas to run with the reigning superstar of Bollywood – Shah Rukh Khan. The actor, who is a Delhite himself, is euphoric over the idea of running with Delhi for the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon in November. While interacting with a news daily, the actor turned nostalgic and talked about his beautiful memories related with the city.
"I was born here, in Talwar Nursing Home. I lived here for more than two decades in Rajinder Nagar. It is here that I studied, met Gauri for the first time and even started my career with serials like Fauji and Dil Darya. I remember I used to be the galli cricket champion. We used to play between parked vehicles and dodge cycle rickshaws. In between all this, we would still manage to remain focussed on the game," he reminisced.
The actor stated that when Airtel invited him to be a part of the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon on November 1, he simply could not resist it. "The very idea of coming back to my own house, returning to the same streets and mingling with Dilliwallas while they take to the streets was extremely tempting. It almost feels like Delhi has got its very own carnival. And I can't miss it for anything," King Khan reflected.
With Shah Rukh joining Delhi on November 1, the Marathon will surely turn out to be one of it's kind.
