Superstar Shahrukh Khan joined his Bollywood colleagues Mandira Bedi, Kunal Kohli, Tarun Mansukhani and Punit Malhotra to create his own ‘selfie’ moment a day after Hollywood chat show host Ellen DeGeneres’ selfie shot at Oscar Awards 2014. A selfie is a self-clicked photograph.

Anchor-actress Mandira Bedi posted the Bollywood selfie on Twitter and Facebook with the caption: “We had our own selfie moment.”


Shahrukh is the star attraction of the selfie, which was clicked during a bash thrown by luxury watch brand Tag Heuer, endorsed by King Khan.

Hollywood’s star-studded impromptu selfie, initiated by DeGeneres and captured by Bradley Cooper, featured the two celebrities along with names like Jennifer Lawrence, Jared Leto, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Lupita Nyong’o and her brother Peter.

It was a standout moment at the 86th Academy Awards, held at Los Angeles’ Dolby Theatre on March 2. The picture received over 1.1 million retweets within just half an hour.
