With the short delay in the release of Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi until December 12th, the two Khans will now be going practically head-to-head as the final scene in another dramatic Bollywood year. Which will be the bigger hit, is the question everyone is asking. But Shahrukh Khan is a professional and has seen much to admire in Aamir Khan‘s obsessed character in Ghajini — so much so that he is hoping to entice Aamir’s newest director, A R Murugadoss into his camp!
Shahrukh has a number of projects in mind at the moment including My Name is Khan and Billoo Barber. Meanwhile, Murugadoss is working on a Southern project with actress Surya. Fellow southerner, Asin, who stars in Ghajini, has said that she would be pleased to work with Shahrukh and Murugadoss on a future project.
Shahrukh has deliberately toned down the publicity for RNBDJ in respect for the Mumbai attack, but even so, sources say that a private screening for cast and crew showed the film had ‘superhit’ written all over it. Meanwhile, he is still huge in Europe as his biography, “The King of Bollywood” has proven to be a bestseller in Poland where his films are regularly shown and he is an instantly recognised star.
