Producer Karan Johar responded on behalf of his cast and director and received a response:
SRK replied a day later and was thanked by Mr Feig:
It's clear from Mr Feig's tweet that he and Shah Rukh Khan have already met but we're not quite sure when. In May this year, SRK issued a Twitter invite to Mr Feig, prompted by his wife Laurie's tweet about hoping to one day visit Mannat, the 51-year-old actor's Mumbai home.
Alia Bhatt and Gauri Shinde also responded to Paul Feig's praise:

Dear Zindagi, which is now almost halfway to the 100 crore mark, stars Alia Bhatt as a young cinematographer being counselled through romantic distress by Shah Rukh Khan's character. The film, Gauri Shinde's second so far, also stars Kunal Kapoor, Ira Dubey, Angad Bedi and Ali Zafar, with Aditya Roy Kapur making a special appearance.
Paul Feig's gender-bending Ghostbusters starred Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon in the roles originally played by Bill Murray, Dan Ackroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson, with Chris Hemsworth playing their secretary in an inspired piece of casting.
