Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan admits that he was very sad and cried a lot when he heard about the tragic death of 'King of Pop' Michael Jackson.

Describing himself an ardent fan of Jackson, Khan said, "I felt very sad. I had met him. He was a wonderful creation of God."

He was talking to reporters in London last night at a ceremony where an Honorary Doctorate was conferred on him by UK's Bedfordshire University.

"The only music I knew or heard during the last three four years is that of Michael Jackson. I don't have any understanding of other western music," Khan said.

"I felt I lost my youth when I heard Michael Jackson passed away," he added.

The 50-year-old pop icon who died of a suspected cardiac arrest on June 25 was on the verge of making a much awaited
comeback in London.

The concerts were supposed to be Jackson's first public performance announcing his return to the music world after
years of staying in reclusion.
