SRK, who is filming his December movie Dilwale in the city, also posted the picture on his new Instagram account and, unimpeded by a character limit, wrote this caption: "Dhal gaya din (tuk). Ho gayi shaam (tuk)...Jaane doh jaana hai. Who all know this song from Humjoli?? My tuk tuk moment with Saina"
Saina, who confessed she was an SRK fan during an appearance on TV show Comedy Nights With Kapil Sharma in March, was floored:
Oh my GOD Shahrukh sir ur such a nice person very happy to meet u . U made my day thank u so much pic.twitter.com/NbAg5anYz3Saina Nehwal (@NSaina) September 17, 2015
On Tuesday, Saina fangirled SRK on Twitter asking if she could stop by the sets of Dilwale to meet him. He told he'd call to set up a date, and he kept his word. On the sets of Dilwale, the 25-year-old shuttle champ had her very own 'DDLJ' moment. She'd already met actress Kajol, SRK's heroine in both movies, a day before:

Saina also tweeted a big thanks to director Rohit Shetty:
Dilwale, which has also been shot in several other locations including Bulgaria and Iceland, co-stars Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon. It releases on December 18, the first of the three films SRK has made this year to hit screens.
