Mumbai: King of romance Shah Rukh Khan’s list of admirers is endless. The actor is not just a rage among common masses, but is also a hit with the newbies of tinsel town. Joining SRK’s fan club is the hot new on-screen couple Imran Khan and Deepika Padukone, who will be seen paying tribute to him in Kunal Kohli’s forthcoming production ‘Break Ke Baad’.
The romantic comedy directed by Danish Aslam’s has been shot mostly in Delhi, Mumbai and Mauritius. The film will see Imran and Deepika debuting as romantic couple for the first time ever.
In the film, Imran plays a theatre owner and Padukone plays a wannabe actress. The two are childhood friends; they fall in love and eventually have a break up. The film tracks their post break-up blues and how they manage to salvage their relationship despite being in two altogether separate geographical places.
Speaking to a news daily, producer Kunal Kohli said, “Imran enacts Shah Rukh’s signature steps in the title track ‘Dooriyan’. He is also very fond of SRK, who is popular as the king of romance.”
Earlier, Imran had reportedly hinted at Salman Khan in his debut film Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na’s song ‘Pappu Can’t Dance’.
Deepika, who launched her career with SRK in Om Shanti Om (2007), is a big admirer of Khan. She too imitates him in the film. “In a drunken stupor in Break Ke Baad, she claims she is Shah Rukh Khan,” says Kohli.
