At the launch, Shah Rukh shared about he is an ardent follower of the show and traced it much before the inception of Google. He said that he has a very curious nature, and was unsure if it’s his parents' upbringing or his teachers' teachings that he’s turned into the curious person that he is now. He admits that he is a big fan of TedTalks and how for over the years now, he’s been an ardent follower of TEDTalks, even much before Google came into existence.

Ecstatic about his association with such an intellectual show, the expressive speaker said that TEDTalks has been his most satisfying and creatively challenging job till date, wherein he can portray the real him, his intellect, wit, he as a father, film artist, entrepreneur.

At the launch, a journalist told the founder and owner of TEDTalks Chris Anderson that the Indian audience doesn’t consume such mature and intelligent content and it would be difficult to say if the Indian audience will accept it.

Anderson's reply to this statement definitely won our hearts and Shah Rukh too gave a piece of his mind.

“This is not TED coming to India; instead, we have taken on this opportunity to bring TEDTalks to India. This is by far the biggest partnership we've done,” stated Chris Anderson.

Adding to which, Shah Rukh said, "We always underrate our audience. This is unreasonable to say that people are not ready to accept. Anything if put across in a right way, it gets its way. I think we will fulfill the craving of a lot of audiences through TEDTalks."

TEDTalks India will follow the international format wherein a speaker will address an audience of 100 people, speaking for 18 minutes. The show will be in Hindi for the Indian audience.
