Shah Rukh Khan is a global superstar and has hundreds and thousands of fans in every country. His legions of fans love him not only for his onscreen performances but also his offscreen persona. The charming and witty side of SRK that comes out in interviews and fan interactions, in person and on social media, has bowled over many, including American wrestler-turned-actor John Cena.

John Cena’s mysterious social media presence has been a subject of discussion online. His feed, both on X and Instagram, seems to be a collection of random pictures and quotes without any context or explanation.

Recently, wrestler Gurv Sihra shared a video from one of his gym sessions with John Cena, introducing him as a “big Shah Rukh Khan fan”. Then the Trainwreck star proceeds to learn, and sing, the song ‘Bholi Si Surat’ from Dil To Pagal Hai (1997), much to the delight of SRK fans worldwide.

Later, John Cena posted a photo of SRK doing his classic pose on his Instagram, predictably, without a caption or context.

While this might seem random to people who stop to smell the proverbial roses and touch grass once in a while, John Cena and SRK have shared a bond for a long time.

John Cena fans and followers have noticed that SRK is a regular fixture on the wrestler’s social media, whether it’s through random images of the Indian superstar or inspirational quotes edited on filtered photos.

The wrestler’s fascination with SRK can be traced back to 2018, when he shared a quote by the Jawan actor on X.

SRK noticed and responded by expressing his gratitude for John Cena for “spreading the goodness”.

John Cena has, since then, shared many more inspirational quotes by the star on his Instagram feed.

Is John Cena manifesting a collaboration with Shah Rukh Khan? What would a collaboration between the hilarious wrestler-turned-actor and the actor who can turn millions into putty with his dimpled smile and open arms? We might not know the answers to these questions but what we do know is that John Cena is, in fact, just like us.
