King Khan fans have some rumors to talk about. It is about sweet Apple too. After being a long-time brand ambassador for Nokia might soon be sporting Apple's products (which he already does own for sure).
Tim Cook visited India with many motives. Setting up a Maps team dedicated to improving the service in India, a Swift app development team that will provide support to various organizations and start-ups who want to be a part of the App Store. Selling of refurbished iPhones too was on the agenda, but things did not swing in favor of Apple.

Sources have come to know that Apple CEO Time Cook was attending a party hosted by Shah Rukh Khan when he visited Mumbai. Whether his visit was to intentionally get the actor on board, or if things happened after some consideration is yet unclear. But Apple is definitely eying the Indian smartphone industry.
Nokia may be making a comeback with their Android smartphones soon, but Shah Rukh Khan may not be for their billboards and ads. The actor was a brand ambassador for Nokia's Lumia range of devices, with the company even joining in to market the phone along with promotions of 'Chennai Express'.
Apple in India
With 4G reaching many major cities in India, telecom companies are now pushing to make the technology a standard soon. And Apple feels more interested in bringing their devices to a market that is ready to accept 3G and 4G services. iPhones are already 4G ready handsets, and many new users can benefit from the arrival of Apple.
Once Shah Rukh Khan brings his charm to help sell iPhones, there is no telling if Apple's plans will succeed. iPhones are Still Expensive (and that's the iPhone SE we talk about).
There may be a Shah Rukh Khan edition smartphone which could sell like the Virat FanBox, with his autograph sprawled at the back and users greeted with his wallpapers. We can already see Shah Rukh fans camping outside Apple Stores!
