British actor Tom Hiddleston is best known for playing the god of mischief Loki in MCU movies, and the popular character is all set to have his own Disney Plus series, starting June 9. In a video shared recently by the streaming platform on Twitter, Tom plays a game of Word Association and talks about all the Indian things that he loves, which also includes Shah Rukh Khan.
In the game, Tom has to give his thoughts about the first thing that comes to his mind when he is presented with a certain word. On being asked about ‘India’, Tom says, “Shah Rukh Khan.” He is then asked about Bollywood and says, “Am I allowed to say Shah Rukh Khan again? Shah Rukh Khan again.” Next, Tom is asked about an Indian city and says, “Chennai. My akka lives there. She used to live there. And I have been there a few times. Chennai is great!”

In 2012, Tom told Hindustan Times, “I’d want nothing more but to star in a Bollywood movie” and it looks like his love for Bollywood still stands. He had also mentioned that he “loved” SRK’s My Name Is Khan.
Since 2012’s The Avengers, Tom Hiddleston’s Loki has appeared in various Avengers films. His character died in 2018’s Avengers Infinity War, but in 2019’s Avengers Endgame, Loki appeared again as the Avengers travelled back in time. In that timeline, Loki vanished with the Tesseract and the events of the Disney+ Hotstar series Loki follow that version of the character.
“This Loki is the Loki who lost the Battle of New York at the end of the first Avengers film. This is the Loki who went through the story of that first Avengers film,” Tom previously told TV Insider.
Loki starts streaming on Disney+ Hotstar from June 9.
