Shah Rukh Khan refuses to play a fading superstar
Mumbai: Ranbir Kapoor is a happy man these days for the actor is finally getting a chance to share screen space with his idol Shah Rukh Khan. The actor, who has often confessed to being a big fan of King Khan will be seen opposite SRK in a remake of a Bengali film ‘Autograph’. The film that has won rave reviews in Kolkata is about a fading superstar and his sudden comeback to limelight.
The film’s Hindi version will be directed by Srijit Mukherjee, who also directed the Bengali version. And as expected SRK is averse to play the role of a fading superstar. Wonder if, it would mirror his real life a little too much?
To be produced by Madhu Mantena, the film will be an exact copy of the Bengali flick. Talking about the film, Mantena said, "I think the era of remakes from regional languages into Hindi is back. We just need to make sure the regional flavour is not lost in Hindi. Ghajini was a smash-hit Tamil to Hindi remake. I am talking to at least five major Tamil-Telugu blockbuster directors about making their own films in Hindi."
Well looks like if SRK and Ranbir jodi is to go through, SRK has no option other than play the role of a fading superstar for Ranbir is much too young for the part.
