Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who started his career with TV serials like ‘Fauji’ and ‘Circus’ almost two decades ago and went on to become the badshah of tinsel town will soon make a comeback on primetime show.

After tasting success with reality shows like ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’, ‘Kya Aap Paanchvi Paas Se Tez Hain?’ and ‘Zor Ka Jhatka’, SRK will be seen in a cameo in primetime daily soap ‘Sasural Simar Ka.’

Interestingly, ‘Saural Simar Ka’ also marks the return of Avika Gor, Anandi of ‘Balika Vadhu.’

Talking to a daily, a source said, “The serial is a highly anticipated fiction show, especially because it marks the return of Avika Gor. It was not easy to convince SRK considering his packed schedule. He heard the entire track of the show and the story appealed to him because the story of the protagonist resembles the actor’s own life. Thus, he agreed and even started shooting for the show last night.”

“SRK would be seen in a couple of episodes but the cameo is kept under wraps. The channel does not want to disclose what he will be playing in the show,” added the source.

SRK in primetime soap, that’s great news!
