For those who thought that the fans of Kollywood (Tamil film industry) were one crazy lot, we are sure that this piece of news will just not be a 'Moonwalk' (quite literally) for them. It's general knowledge that shahrukh khan is called the King Khan for enough reasons that would fill many pages of an Encyclopedia. And the fan following that he has is nothing short of hysteria.

Well, if that wasn't enough, here is a piece of news that is bound to make you sit up and take notice. The news is that one of SRK's biggest fans had purchased (you read it right) a piece of land in SRK's name on the Moon. And the good news is that, the International Lunar Geographic Society (ILGS) has now approved of the same. The crater in question is located on the moon's Sea of Tranquility and is the largest of the four Arago craters, positioned directly south of the main crater.

It is said that the crater was named after SRK on his 44th birthday in November last year, and was only recently approved by the International Astronomical Union following a spate of petitions from SRK fans worldwide.

With this, SRK has proved quite literally, as to what 'feeling over the moon' really means. Way to go, SRK!
