Obama charmed the crowd while addressing a Town hall event in Siri Fort on the third and final day of his visit to India by quoting Shah Rukh Khan's famous line 'Senorita, bade bade deshon mein...' from blockbuster 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge'.
The actor's name cropped up again in his address as the President picked Shah Rukh, sports icons like Milkha Singh and Mary Kom and Nobel laureate Kailash Satyarthi's names to make a point about humanitarian values.
"Proud to be part of the gender and religion equality speech of President Obama. Sad he couldn't do the Bhangra... next time Chaiyya Chaiyya for sure," Shah Rukh tweeted.
