Shah Rukh tweeted to Big B on July 5:

Shah Rukh started his acting career with fictional TV shows such Fauji and Circus. It was then that he was noticed and picked up for films. Whereas, the Big B made his TV foray only in 2000 with reality game show Kaun Banega Crorepati, which ended up changing the face of Indian television.
He has since hosted most seasons of KBC, barring one, for which Shah Rukh sat on the quizmaster's chair.
Now, Mr Bachchan, 71, will be seen in Yudh - a finite TV series ready to go on air on Sony Entertainment Television from July 14.
Meanwhile, both the actors, who are sports enthusiasts, are busy catching up on the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2014.
