Shah Rukh Khan, the Badshah of Bollywood, on Friday, August 23, recalled the time he had romanced many actresses on railway stations. The actor who has given his voice to the character of Simba in Disney's The Lion King, inaugurated a new postal cover at the Bandra Railway Station in Mumbai. The new postal stamp has been launched on the completion of 130 years of Bandra railway station.
Speaking at the event, Swades actor said, "I am really happy to be here. Mainly because maine railway station pe bahut sari ladkiyon ke sath mohabbat ki hai, bahut prem kia hai. Bus ye Bandra station hi reh gaya tha jaha mein nahi aaya. I thank you for inviting me here. Ab maine station dekh lia hai, toh mein koi heroine se baat karuga aur aana jana laga rahega (I have romanced many girls on the railway station, but I had never been to this station, so I am very happy to be here. Now, that I have seen this station, I will come back)."
