Shah Rukh used to tease a South Indian girl next door by messing with her letter box. Her mother came to Shah Rukh’s house and started complaining in broken Hindi, ‘Aapka ladka, ladki ko chedta hai meri’ (your son is teasing my daughter). To which Mir Raj Mohammed replied, ‘Is she as pretty as you are?’ The lady was bedazzled and later replied back by saying ‘Yes’. Hearing that Shah Rukh’s father said, ‘Then I don’t blame my son. If I had met you earlier even I would have been after you!’
As per Shah Rukh, he inherited his witty humour from his father Mir Taj Mohammed.
