SRK in awe of Gurmehar Kaur

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan has praised student-turned-activist Gurmehar Kaur for showing courage and talking about her fears through a TV show "TED Talks India Nayi Soch".

Gurmehar Kaur has been popular for her debates on equality in Delhi University and came into the limelight following her comments on the ABVP and how war killed her father and not Pakistan. She will be one of the speakers on the Star Plus show, and will be speaking on ‘You Have A Super Power - Your Words'.

"To open up about such fears and dilemma in front of a national audience showcases the courage inside you. I hope the path will get easier with time," Shah Rukh said in a statement.

The episode featuring Gurmehar Kaur will air on Sunday.
