And one of these selfies just happened to be with former One Direction member Zayn Malik.

This kid is so cool. May Allah bless him. Dinner time at the Asian Awards.

The internet, of course, lost its collective shit.

@iamsrk @zaynmalik OH MY GOD AMPQM

So much so that, less than a week later, it has become India's most retweeted tweet of all time.

Congrats @iamsrk, this selfie of yours is now the most Retweeted Tweet ever in India! https://t.co/zcdN5jwcB4

117,000 retweets and counting.

The previous record-holder was PM Narendra Modi's victory tweet after the 2014 elections.

India has won! भारत की विजय। अच्छे दिन आने वाले हैं।

It's still some distance away from the all-time record of 3.3 million RTs.

If only Bradley's arm was longer. Best photo ever. #oscars

But for now, well-played, SRK.

Even if most of the heavy-lifting was done by Zayn's fans.

Like, seriously.
