EXCLUSIVE: “Shah Rukh Khan said ‘main sambhal lunga’”: Pakistani actor Humayun Saeed recalls how SRK was helpful ahead of a stage show in 2005

Pakistani actor Humayun Saeed, who was last seen in Netflix’s The Crown as Dr. Hasnat Khan, recently spoke to Bollywood Hungama about his Urdu show Mere Paas Tum Ho arriving on Indian TV channel Zindagi soon, his experience on working on the Netflix series The Crown, and memories of sharing the stage with Shah Rukh Khan.

Shah Rukh Khan, Preity Zinta, Humayun Saeed, and Reema Khan performed together at the Zee Cine Awards 2005. They performed on Veer Zaara and Kal Ho Naa Ho songs. In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Humayun recalled meeting SRK and said in Urdu, “There was a lot of excitement when I met Shah Rukh. He was very sweet to me. We were in his room and he made me sit with him and discussed Indian and Pakistan films with me. That time there was a Mehreen Jabbar and a Shaan film in the theatres and SRK was talking about them. He said that Pakistani films should be released in India and vice versa. He made me comfortable. Since I had just come the previous day to the sets, I did not know exactly what to do. Shah Rukh said ‘main sambhal lunga.’ The overall moment was very special.”

Meanwhile, on the work front, Shah Rukh Khan is gearing up for the release of Jawan on September 7, 2023. The first song ‘Zinda Banda’ is set to release in the first week of August.
