Though no one expected it, Shah Rukh Khan decided to show his fans his love-filled heart and responded.
Everyone went bonkers when they received a Tweet from SRK himself.

But it soon dawned upon humanity that it was not the Badshah but a ‘Bad Shah’ playing a dirty marketing trick.
It appears that the bot was working full-time on November 6, too.
Why then would @iamsrk keep retweeting every Tom, Dick, or Harry post that mentioned #DforDilwale?
Even those that just had the ‘D’.
So all of this left many slightly annoyed.
The bot seems to have become operational on November 9, the day ‘Dilwale’ trailer was released. But none of the celebrities who wished SRK appears to have received the message.
