A couple of days ago, Shah Rukh Khan met a bunch of children, who were heading to Moscow to represent India at the World Children's Winners Games. What was extremely special about these kids is that these are special kids, who, very early in their lives conquered life-threatening diseases like acute leukemia, lymphoma and nephroblastoma.

When Shah Rukh Khan learned that the children were representing India and compete with Russia, he decided to take some time off to meet them at his home and prepare for the competition. He met each and every kid personally, spent close to an hour with them, gave them a good pep talk and handed them all jerseys and kits for the competition.

These nine kids did not just participate in this massive competition at the global level, but they also made India proud by winning 22 medals in various games like swimming, rifle shooting, football, chess etc. Shah Rukh Khan's meeting with the kids was an inspirational one.
