The Noble prize laureate Malala Yousufzai had a cordial twitter exchange with megastar and King of Bollywood Shahrukh Khan.
2 years ago, at the time of the release of Dear Zindagi starred Shahrukh Khan and Alia Bhatt, the co-star of the film had a twitter exchange in which Alia was thanking for his ‘Cool VFX’ that made her look much good in the film.
In reply, Shahrukh Khan tweeted;
“@gauris @aliaa08 @KausarMunir u girls r the soul of Zindagi & happiness. Glad I could be of service.”

It shows the influence of Pakistan’s noble laureate that made the world’s biggest superstar respond within minutes. We hope Shahrukh Khan’s team to schedule the visit soon.
Malala already had the honour to met world’s most influential personalities including, David Beckham, Barack Obama, Bill Gates, Justin Trudeau and even Queen Elizabeth, however, this one will be the most exciting for especially for the people of South Asia region.
