March 23rd to the 25th saw the prestigious FICCI Frames convention, which focuses on media and entertainment. Frames is a three-day convention bringing together over 2000 Indian and 800 foreign delegates from all avenues of entertainment and movies. The three days saw some of the stars of Bollywood taking part in the sessions and presentations. The end of FICCI Frames saw a great, funny, dynamic between SRK and Hugh Jackman, the X-Men star. SRK has always loved super hero movies and that is clearly evident with his production releasing this year, Ra.One with Kareena Kapoor. He’s hired the best from Hollywood to make the effects look real and has spared no penny. So when Hugh Jackman and SRK shared the same stage at FICCI, the prior claimed to be a big fan of the movie, Wolverine, and said, “I have seen a lot of Hugh’s films and also his work on TV. I loved Wolverine the most and during our discussion just a while back, Hugh offered me to be part of the next X-Men installment. I told him I am in. I would definitely love to do X-Men with him.”
Now before people get excited, this was the regular quipping that audiences are used to from SRK, especially during award shows. Except this time, Jackman was quick to respond back in his own humorous way by correcting SRK, “Well, Oh! I just asked you to finance the film.”
Even though this turned out to be a joke, we bet fans would be extremely interested in seeing the combination of Jackman & SRK on screen! And with collaborations between the two movie industries are increasing nowadays, this certainly is something worth exploring.
