SRK shares a selfie with Rembrandt artwork taken at the world famous Rijks Museum in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
Shah Rukh Khan recently visited the world famous Rijks Museum in Amsterdam (SRK is in Holland for Imtiaz Ali’s film shoot) and was simply blown away by the fabulous art work.
The Rijksmuseum (a stunning neo-Gothic building), dedicated to arts and history, is located at the Museum Square in the borough Amsterdam South, close to the Van Gogh Museum, the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, and the Concertgebouw.
The museum houses thousands of old paintings, including those of renowned Dutch masters Rembrandt, Frans Hals and Vermeer.
A Rembrandt artwork in particular caught SRK’s attention; the artwork shows people taking their turn as nightwatches. In the 17th century, when the law and order situation was very bad, people used to take their turns as nightwatches. This painting represents that.
SRK captioned it, “Surrounded by Masters keeping a Nightwatch. Rembrandt and others at the awesome Rijks Museum. #Amsterdambeautiful”

Watch: Night at the Rijksmuseum
Ever since he has been in Amsterdam, SRK has been sharing videos of the beautiful city during shoot breaks!
In one of the videos (a hilarious one), SRK was teaching his Dutch assistant director a Hindi tongue twister – “Kaccha papad, Pakka papad.” (remember Amitabh Bachchan’s dialogue?)
