The King and the Pope

The King being SRK, Shah Rukh Khan, the King of Bollywood (see this CNN special on the most popular movie star in India), who is currently visiting Germany. The headline in yesterday's Hindustan Times was: "Pope is popular but the King is sexier."
The Die Tageszeitung article, by Ekkehard Knorer, said, "It may well be that at the moment in the whole world there is no one more dearly loved, venerated and idolized as the Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan… (There is) the Pope perhaps, but with all due respect, (he) has less charm and is also less sexy…"
Well, duh.

And by all accounts, SRK is making waves in Germany.
