Riz Ahmed and Poorna Jagannathan, stars of the show, could barely contain their excitement.

Mumbai: Shah Rukh Khan has always been a vocal appreciator of quality television content. Having himself risen to fame courtesy cult television shows as ‘Joker’ and ‘Fauji’, the actor has never held his words back while appreciating works of television shows or their stars.

He had recently revealed that the British television show ‘The Night Of’ starring John Turturro and Riz Ahmed, is his latest obsession, owing to its terrific content.

“I put my iPad here (on the cycling equipment) and watch ‘The Night Of’ which is currently my favourite, so that I can pass off one hour,” Shah Rukh Khan had been quoted as saying, earlier this month.

Reacting to this information, Riz Ahmed, who plays Nasir Khan in the critically acclaimed show, could barely contain his excitement on Twitter.


Poorna Jagannathan, who had played one of the leading ladies in Aamir Khan’s cult production, ‘Delhi Belly’, portrays Riz’ mother in the show.   The actress couldn’t stop gushing, either.

Shah Rukh Khan responded to the excited stars and congratulated them on the show, earnestly, being the absolute gentleman that he is.


Is a comeback to television in the offing with SRK being open to radical ideas, of late?
