After interviewing SRK in front of the live audience on Thursday (16 May) in New York, Letterman, 72, said the actor was one of the loveliest persons he has ever spoken to.
“The best part of this job that Netflix has been happy to provide for me is to meet people. And after each one of these sessions I think to myself, it is a very smart, very lovely person from whom I have learned things. You would maybe be at the top of that list,” Letterman said.
Netflix has not announced the premiere date of the special.
SRK was last seen in Ananad L Rai's Zero alongside Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma.
