Shahrukh Khan will be appearing in the final act of Abhishek Bachchan’s Kal Kissney Dekha. Abhi will be flying to New Zealand in January to shoot a love song for the movie. Director Vivek Sharma says of Shahrukh’s decision to appear in the movie, “Shahrukh Khan is making a special appearance in the movie and will be seen at a very important time in the film’s climax. He is a good friend of mine and for him to agree to be a part of Kal Kissney Dekha is like a blessing.”
Meanwhile, a new trailer for Shahrukh’s Billu Barber has been released. The film also stars Irrfan Khan and Lara Dutta. The story is based loosely on the tale of Krishna and Sudama from the Bhagavad Purana and was filmed recently in the south as Kuselan with superstar Rajnikanth in Shahrukh’s role. Irrfan stars in the lead role of Billu, the impoverished childhood friend of Shahrukh who has since become a filmi superstar. Shahrukh has a limited amount of screentime in the movie but features prominently in item numbers with stars such as Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone.
Abhishek fans are looking forward to the release of Delhi-6, a film which sees an American NRI bringing his grandmother back to India for a quick visit. But where does the title come from? “Little does Abhishek know that the quick trip will turn into the longest journey of his life – a journey within,” says the advertising for the movie, “The backdrop of the story is the ancient walled city of Delhi, a character in herself. She represents the chaos, religion, beliefs and ethos of the Indian people. The pin code of the city is 110006, and with pride of love they call her Delhi-6.”
