Shah Rukh Khan’s collaboration with American DJ Diplo for the song, Phurrr, in Jab Harry Met Sejal has already made news. The actor recently shot a promotional video of the number with the Grammy winner, in the sunny vistas of Los Angeles.
Talking about his shoot, Khan tells mid-day, “Diplo had a show in Miami, but he postponed it and flew down to LA instead.”
Khan further reveals that he was not supposed to be a part of the song originally. “I went on the set to meet him. But, he insisted on me being a part of the video, and I had to oblige. He showed me some swag moves, and I just copied him.”
The duo bonded over Indian culture. “Diplo has spent a lot of time in Kolkata, so he loves India and our culture. He was sweet enough to give me a jacket of his record label, Mad Decent.”
Diplo was accompanied by his kids, Lockett and Lazer Pentz, who are big fans of SRK. “I was surprised that his sons knew of me. Unfortunately, my kids couldn’t come because it was an early morning shoot,” he informs.
