SRK's children Aryan and Suhana are said to be great fans of Khali. They expressed their wish to meet the giant wrestler to their father. And so, SRK invited the WWE giant to have dinner with his kids at his residence.

He is going to play the role of a villain in this film starring Sahil Khan and Tanushree Dutta . He had earlier acted in Hollywood film 'The Longest Yard' in 2005 and another film featuring him 'Get Smart' is also ready for release.

He signed a contract with the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) in 2006 and debuted on April 7, 2006 by beating The Undertaker. He is the third in a family of eight children and was once an officer in the Punjab police.

He worked for many years as a labourer in a small hamlet and later in the town of Shimla, after which he was picked by the neighbouring Punjab Police chief and recruited as a constable.

Khali won the bodybuilding title of Mr. India in 1997 and 1998, this one-time WWE Champion has caught the eyes of none other than our own Bollywood Baadshah SRK.
