It is common knowledge that Shah Rukh Khan is a chain-smoker. The tar and smoke produced during smoking causes a smoker’s lips to darken and lose its original pink/red
hue. SRK is no exception.
In a report published by DNA, Shah Rukh’s Om Shanti Om, Chennai Express and Happy New Year co-star Deepika Padukone asked SRK a rather strange question:
“When was the last time you scrubbed your lips with strawberries?”
Shah Rukh, not the one to get awkward or nervous by questions such as these, admitted that he has better lip balm now, thanks to Alia Bhatt.
The Dear Zindagi actor revealed that his lips would get dark and hence on searching for remedies on the internet, he found a site which suggested one to rub strawberries on his lips.
“One day on the sets of Chennai Express, I found out that they used to get strawberries. So full day, I used to keep rubbing strawberries on my lips. Only at that place Wai. Thatâ€™s the last time and I havenâ€™t scrubbed them since then!,” Shah Rukh Khan was quoted as saying.
Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone share a great professional relationship and excellent camaraderie. Having acted together in three films, Shah Rukh called Deepika his ‘lucky charm’ back in 2015, ahead of the release of Rohit Shetty’s Dilwale.
