The world’s most famous man gave a TED talk and many in the audience didn’t know who he was

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan may well be the most famous person in the world. In terms of audience for his dozens of films, he’s the biggest movie star. But at the TED conference in Vancouver, many in the audience had little clue who he was.

Still, the beloved actor instantly charmed the crowd of Silicon valley leaders, scientists, and academics at the elite yearly conference. “Lots of you here haven’t seen my work, and I feel very sad for you,” joked Khan as he began his TED talk. “I’m a movie star. I’m 51 years of age. I sell dreams and I peddle love to millions of people back home in India, who assume I’m the best lover in the world.”
