Rohit Sharma and Shah Rukh Khan were recently found engaged in a conversation on Twitter after the Bollywood star celebrated 25 years of his movie Baazigar through a video post. Rohit Sharma said that Baazigar was one of his most favourite movies.
Shah Rukh Khan in response said, "Next time will do Kaali Kaali Aankhen for you live at the IPL my friend. Keep healthy. Love to u."
Rohit however wanted the performance to take place at KKR's home ground and said that, "@iamsrk I'm going to hold you to that and at Eden Gardens so I can add that to my list of memories there."
