Following in Shahrukh Khan’s footsteps across UK and Scotland



Geeta Seth with Shahrukh Khan

By Geeta Seth: Holidaying all over the world, especially during lebaran has been a passion for Indians living abroad. But my recent trip to UK and Scotland was unique especially for a special reason……I AM A DIE HARD FAN OF SHAHRUKH KHAN. Not to repeat that this fabulous actors intense acting has won millions of hearts.

Although I have never met him personally, when I saw his statue at Madame Tussaud’s‎ in London, I just couldn’t hold back my tears of happiness … ‘so funny’ said my sister, even though she is a bigger fan but she thought crying was stupid…Well …with the support of my real life Shahrukh, I mean my husband Richard, I could visit nearly each & every place Shahrukh had been to shoot for his films. Not a single place left…all this is possible only with a super loving & understanding life partner.

Our first stop was Edinburgh, Scotland…the historic “Edinburgh Fort” where the song of kuch kuch hota hai was shot. My husband was my official photographer…and he loved it.


My craze was so much that we boarded the train in similar way as of Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaayenge (I have already visited Switzerland twice for this movies scenes) the train journey throughout reminded me of my favorite star.


Trafalgar Square, London”, was another place where Shahrukh had shot the Challa song..and we went and relived the song…in the same were the scenes London bridge.



Saans song from jab tak hai jaan was partially shot at “Big Ben”…and to my surprise my hubby booked the hotel known as London Marriott County Hall. So I was walking down by the Big Ben daily…to the extent my Marriott room window view had the Big Ben View



I have no words to express my joy on this trip and it doubled when Poonam Sagar of IndoIndians asked me to write about it.

Your Majesty Queen Elizabeth…your country is wonderful…so are you….But our Shah Rukh Khan is unbeatable your highness, you bet
