The dinner party at Mannat was also a small and private affair. After a long wait, the picture of the day arrived with Shah Rukh's post. The superstar shared a picture with David on Instagram and penned an appreciation note. 

Shah Rukh wrote, "Last nite with an icon…and an absolute gentleman. Have always been a big admirer but meeting him and seeing how he is with kids made me realise that the only thing that outdoes his football is his kindness and his gentle nature. My love to your family. Be well and happy my friend and get some sleep…. (sic)."
