Mumbai: Shah Rukh Khan is an entertainer cum entrepreneur who knows how to spot good opportunities. The actor, who is known to diversify and experiment, has now given his nod to a Broadway-style, big budget Indian musical, the second to be attempted after the ‘City of Dreams`.

As per reports, this is the first time ever that such an Indian musical will be made on such a large scale. But if sources are to be believed, then the Bollywood Badshah will only do a cameo which will have a crucial impact on the plot.

Talking to a news daily, a source from the event management company that is making this musical said, “A full-fledged publicity plan is being devised cashing in on SRK`s presence in the show as this is now it’s USP”.

However, getting Shah Rukh on board wasn`t easy. In order to convince King Khan, help of the Morani brothers, with whom the actor has worked for many years, was taken.

“It took quite a lot of time for Shah Rukh to get convinced because he wanted to be sure that the project is actually big,” said the source.
