    16 Wise And Witty Things Shah Rukh Khan Said At His TED Talk

    India decided somehow that I, the Muslim son of a broke freedom fighter who accidentally ventured into the business of selling dreams, should become its king of romance, the "Bashah of Bollywood," the greatest lover the country has ever seen... with this face.

    On April 27, Shah Rukh Khan gave his very first TED Talk, during which he announced a new show, called TED Talks India: Nayi Soch. Khan will be hosting the show, and it will air on Star India’s channels.

    The talk was about humanity, fame and love and here are some of the times he was at his funniest, most thought-provoking and wisest:

    1. When he wasn't shy to admit his age.

    2. When he was a self-obsessed movie star.

    3. When he made this comparison of himself to ALL of humanity.

    4. When he reminisced about simpler times.

    5. When he was just glad to be rubbing shoulders with the stars.

    6. When he spoke about this midlife crisis.

    7. When he spoke about internet trolls and being under scrutiny all the time.

    8. When he just needed a comfortable superhero costume to be relevant again.

    9. When he was peak dad discovering millenial slang.

    10. When he was baffled at the love he gets from his fans.

    11. When he had this momentary existential crisis.

    12. When he admitted that all you really need is love.

    13. When he marveled at how good and equally frustrating it is to be living in the present.

    14. When he brought up India's immense capacity to love.

    15. When he pointed out the power of choosing love over hate.

    16. When he reminded us that we all need is to learn how to love ourselves.
