Call him the Badshaah of Bollywood or the King of Hearts, Shah Rukh Khan is not only popular among Indians but also people around the world. However, the 52-year-old actor seems to stolen the heart of a robot too. Sophia, the world’s first ever artificial intelligence-powered humanoid, recently confessed that her favourite actor was none other than SRK.
The robot, which is developed Hong Kong-based Hanson Robotics, took part in the World Congress on Information Technology (WCIT) that took place in Hyderabad. On being asked as to who was her favourite movie star — both Bollywood and Hollywood — she promptly responded with “Shah Rukh Khan”. The video of her interaction has been going viral on social media and Twitter handle SRKUniverse also tweeted out the video.
We have to say, @RealSophiaRobot has a good choice!

However, Sophia’s confession did not go unnoticed and King Khan himself decided to acknowledge her. In response to the video, he tweeted, “Public declaration of love for a ‘lady’ who has come to my country, India. U Simulate me, every bit and byte of u, Sophia.”
