In the video, Shah Rukh received a grand applause and a long welcome by his fans in the live audience. Letterman had to look at his watch when the audience wouldn’t stop cheering for Shah Rukh. The actor also gestured at them to calm down.
In another bit, Shah Rukh decides to cook Italian food for the host. While chopping veggies, Letterman pretends to have cut a finger, screaming loudly while clutching his hand. Shah Rukh was smiling throughout, having realised what was up. “The scripting was very good. The performance fell short,” he said.

Ahead of the conversation, Shah Rukh said, “I’ve watched David Letterman’s late-night talk show for years and I’m a huge fan of his style of interviewing. I’m thrilled, and honoured to share my story with him. That this is on Netflix is even more special – I’m working with the team on various projects and it’s always been exciting partnering with them.”
After interviewing Shah Rukh Khan in front of a live audience, Letterman said, “The best part of this job that Netflix has been happy to provide for me is to meet people. And after each one of these sessions I think to myself, it is a very smart, very lovely person from whom I have learned things. You would maybe be at the top of that list.”
