In a recent interview with India Today, Ridhi remembered the best compliment she received and it was from SRK. She said, “I think my biggest compliment would be from Shah Rukh Khan himself, what he said on the stage. I don't think I need any more responses after what he said that he would like to work with me again." Indeed, sharing same frame with Badshah of Bollywood is still a dream for many stars.
FYI, King Khan's Jawan has created a new box office record and grossed more than Rs 900 crore globally. The actioner is currently running in theatres successfully.
