Shahrukh Khan as a ‘fading’ superstar?
He is a superstar and his charming ways are still intact, yet Shahrukh Khan makes a perfect actor to play a fading superstar in a film that will also star Ranbir Kapoor in the lead. In a Hindi remake of a Bengali film, the makers are keen to rope in these two stars.
The Bengali movie is Autograph which is doing really well at the BO, and seeing its success and the storyline, the producer of Ghajini, Madhu Mantena, has made up his mind to work on its Hindi remake. As he is quoted as saying, “I think the era of remakes from regional languages into Hindi is back.”
The movie Autograph tells a story about a superstar who is working with an ambitious young director. Later the director’s girlfriend ends up playing the superstar’s heroine. In the original, Bengali actor Prosenjeet essayed the character of the superstar. The Hindi one will most likely have SRK.
The remake will be directed by Srijit Mukherjee who also helmed the original Bengali film. However, it’s believed that a few changes will be made in the script because SRK might have apprehensions about playing a fading star.
SRK and Ranbir make for a terrific combination. What do you say?
