As if the news of Shah Rukh Khan collaborating with Major Lazer fame Diplo for Jab Harry Met Sejal’s new song “Phurrr” wasn’t enough, turns out the actor will also be seen pulling off some swag moves with the singer. Yes, SRK in interaction with Mid Day just spilled the beans on his recent meeting with Diplo in LA stating, “I went on the set to meet him. But, he insisted on me being a part of the video, and I had to oblige. He showed me some swag moves, and I just copied him.” Now isn’t that awesome? We believe this song is going to be similar to how SRK grooved with Akon in Chamak Challo from Ra.One. In fact, perhaps this could also be the reason why SRK agreed to team up with Diplo this time because Chamak Challo had become quite rage with Akon, who was equally a huge music sensation back then just like Diplo?

No wonder Shah Rukh is so excited for this track which is composed by Pritam. He had taken up to Twitter recently saying, “Walked into the video @diplo is making for Phurrr! Got a starring role in it & his Decent jacket. Wes u r dope! Thx.” Pritam too couldn’t contain his excitement when he shared this big news as he wrote, “Something exciting coming up for which I have been working with @iamsrk and @diplo! Can’t wait to share this with you guys #Phurrr.”
Interestingly, Diplo’s kids – Lockett and Lazer Pentz too are huge fans of Shah Rukh and were star struck when they met him during the song shoot in LA. Reveals SRK, “I was surprised that his sons knew of me. Unfortunately, my kids couldn’t come because it was an early morning shoot.”
The song is expected to be out shortly. Let’s see if all the hype turns out to be worth the way….I’m sure it will!
