Shah Rukh Khan received a shout-out from Paulo Coelho in a recent tweet. On Thursday, the Brazilian author tweeted a clip of a celebration of Pathaan's triumph outside Shah Rukh's well-known Mumbai residence Mannat, which had been posted by the star. Paulo responded to the video by tweeting,

King. Legend . Friend. But above all
( for those who don’t know him in the West, I strongly suggest “My name is Khan- and I am not a terrorist”) https://t.co/fka54F1ycc

Shah Rukh Khan responded to Paulo on Friday, calling the author 'too kind.' The actor also requested a 'sooner than soon' meeting with Paulo. Tweeted Shah Rukh,

You are always too kind my friend. Let us meet up sooner than soon!! Bless you https://t.co/7jLTJ4I8ec

Fans praised their sweet online interaction, and some even requested a meeting with Shah Rukh. Tweeted a fan: 'Please meet me also.' One more person remarked about Shah Rukh, 'All the praise is due to you.'You deserve all the praise. You are truly a legend, a king and an actor par excellence, and so much more. Keep spreading your love and light. Lots of love to you Shah Rukh.'
Shah Rukh and Paulo's Twitter conversation has drawn attention before as well. The writer 'thanked' Shah Rukh in 2020 for the movie Kaamyaab, which was supported by his production company Red Chillies Entertainment. Paulo tweeted, 'The producers thank you in the very first frame, Shah Rukh. I am doing the same. Two days ago a great Brazilian actor, Flavio Migliaccio, committed suicide, leaving a note on how the industry treats artists. This movie, labeled as 'comedy', is in fact the tragedy of art', along with a picture of the movie poster.
Shah Rukh tweeted in response to him, saying, 'Saw the film, when it was doing festival rounds, and it touched a chord with the whole team at Red Chillies Entertainment. Am so moved you appreciate it. It’s a sad truth that character actors get forgotten. Look after yourself my friend and be safe and healthy.'
Earlier, in August 2015, the author had given compliments to Shah Rukh and director Karan Johar for their movie My name is Khan (2010). Paulo Coelho said, 'Karan Johar and Shah Rukh Khan, congrats for My name is Khan. I wish we could see more of your movies in Europe. I had to wait years to watch this!' Shah Rukh replied to this, saying, 'Send me your address sir, and I will supply you with all Indian films as they release. We (get to) read you as soon as you write... we are blessed...'
