After Hrithik Roshan, it’s Shah Rukh Khan’s turn to play superhero.
The only difference is that King Khan is doing it only to win his lady love
over in Farah Khan’s ‘Om Shanti Om’. “It’s a scene where Shah Rukh is
trying to impress Deepika Padukone. He’s all dressed up as a superhero to
woo her with some crazy stunts,” revealed a witness present on the sets
during the shooting of the sequence.
Like most SRK romances where he does something to impress the
heroine — right from ‘DDLJ’ to ‘Pardes’ to ‘Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa’ —
this scene is a comic one. While Superman goes ‘Up, up and away’ before
taking off, our desi superhero prefers ‘Oodi Baba’. Apparently SRK so
liked playing a goofy superhero that he did retake after retake just to repeat
the experience. “Farah okayed the shot but Shah Rukh was enjoying the
whole thing. He kept on doing retakes,” the witness added.
We all know film cans are expensive, but Farah let Shah Rukh have his
way because he is producing the film. SRK’s other director Shimit Amin
used up 1500 cans for ‘Chak De India’. Given King Khan’s enthusiasm for
playing a superhero, don’t be surprised if ‘Krrish 2’ stars him instead of
Hrithik. Oodi baba, now that’s a weird thought!
