MUMBAI: Shahrukh Khan, who is known for his witty remarks and sharp sense of humour, made rape accused Tehelka editor Tarun Tejpal the butt of his remarks at a gathering in New Delhi which was attended other celebrities such as Priyanka Chopra and Aamir Khan. Tejpal faces charges of sexually molesting a junior colleague in the lift of a five-star hotel in Goa on Nov 7-8 during the magazine’s annual `Thinkfest’ in Panaji.
At the event hosted by a news channel on Wednesday, the female interviewer asked Shahrukh about his most memorable dialogue since he is the king of romance.
King Khan gave the example of Jab Tak Hai Jaan and then he turned to the interviewer and asked her a little flirtatiously whether she married, according to Mid-Day.
When she said `yes’, then Shahrukh said he hoped that her husband was not watching. He joked that he would like to romance her somewhere outside, but not in a lift. “No… no you are a journalist, not in a lift,” said Shahrukh, taking an indirect jibe at Tarun Tejpal.
As the audience laughed, Shahrukh added, “Adnan Sami’ s Lift Kara De song now has a new meaning.’’
In a lighter vein, Shahrukh said while others were talking about Rs 100-crore, Rs 200-crore and Rs 300-crore clubs, he is shooting for the Rs 1,000- crore club.
