Shah Rukh Khan Calls Standing In For Aamir Khan An 'Honour'

Aamir Khan, sick with swine flu, had to cancel an appearance in Pune on Sunday, so he did the next best thing - he got his buddy Shah Rukh Khan to go in his stead. That's what friends are for, right? And, poetically, it happened to be Friendship Day. Aamir, 52, and wife Kiran Rao are both confined to their home for a week and were forced to scratch an event organised by their NGO Paani Foundation. Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis was scheduled to attend so Aamir made an SOS call to SRK.

"Thanks for giving me the honour to stand in for you," Shah Rukh Khan tweeted later, adding to Mr Fadnavis, "Your concern for farmers is touching."
The event in question was the Satyamev Jayate Water Cup. Aamir and Kiran weren't entirely a no-show, putting in a remote appearance via Skype. "It's a happy day but we are very sad because after working so hard for a year, when the time came for us to celebrate with you, we got this illness. And the disease we are suffering from is one which spreads rapidly. It's called H1N1 or swine flu in common usage," Aamir said.

Lucky for him, Shah Rukh Khan was in town. Aamir, SRK and Salman Khan have been friends for over 20 years now and Aamir was the first person the other two Khans called after famously renewing their friendship at the end of a six-year feud some years ago - they called him at some ungodly am hour, Aamir revealed later.
As I said bonding is clearly visible.
