Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and best-selling author Paulo Coehlo share a mutual admiration club on Twitter. Both have shared tweets in the past in praise of the other. Shah Rukh Khan is an avid reader, and we are hardly surprised that he is in love with the works of Coelho, who has written famous best-sellers like The Alchemist and Eleven Minutes. Now Shah Rukh Khan will be the first Indian reader to get the first signed copy of Paulo Coehlo's upcoming book, Hippie.
The author confirmed this when he tweeted the picture of the book with his signed para for Shah Rukh Khan. He had tweeted, "India: first signed copy of @PenguinIndia edition of HIPPIE goes to @iamsrk". The caption of the book read, "My Dear Friend Shah Rukh Khan, Here is the first copy of the Indian edition! You deserve it! Love." Well, every book-worm must be jealous for Shah Rukh Khan right now!
