Why SRK feels awkward?

Mumbai, Nov 25 (IANS) Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who easily charms everyone with his gentle and pleasant demeanour, says meeting new people still makes him feel awkward.

"Still am not used to the fact that when I meet new people I am a bit awkward, while they meet me with a familiarity of years. It's sweet," tweeted the 47−year−old who has completed two successful decades in filmdom.

Shah Rukh made his big screen debut with "Deewana" in 1992 and since then he has charmed the movie buffs with his performances in films like "Baazigar", "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai", "Devdas", "Swades", "Chak De! India" and "My Name Is Khan".

Much before becoming big screen superstar, Shah Rukh earned a huge fan following among TV viewers with his role of an army man in TV show "Fauji", his first acting assignment.
