A bond to cherish

Farida has not just worked with Shah Rukh, but Salman too, in multiple films. Now, she said that they have changed phone numbers which has made it tough for her to connect with them.

“No, I am not in touch. How do I get to him, tell me? (even) Salman, how do I get to them? You know, they have changed their mobiles or whatever. The number I have of Shah Rukh… I had a shoulder surgery done and he has done many. So, those days I went to his doctor also. He called (me) out of the blue, so sweet na?”

Without disclosing the time frame, she revealed that Shah Rukh comforted her after her shoulder surgery. She said that Shah Rukh asked her not to get impatient after the surgery, and gave a heads up that it is going to take a long time for the movement to resume back to normalcy. That’s because she was worried that she was not able to lift her arm up.

Opening up about her attempt to reconnect with them, she said, “But now, when I try calling him on that number, because I loved his success, his films, I want to tell him, ‘Bachcha, very good, I am very happy for you,’ but there is nobody on that line. If his secretary is not kind to you then what do you do? I have to go through somebody as I don’t have his number. So, Shah Rukh should think about this. When people want to talk to you, what do they do? People like me. Salman also, I used to have his number we used to talk to each other so often, now he must have changed his number, what do I do?”
