Shahrukh eyes Oscar
After delivering some award winning performance in films like DDLJ, Dil To Pagal Hai, Devdas, Swadesh, Pardesh, Mohabatein, Chak De India, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi to name a few, King Khan is now eyeing towards Oscar as he wanted to make things big in an international level. He is sick and tired of national acclamation and wanted to work with renowned directors like Deepa Mehta to pave his way to the Oscar by portraying roles in a serious cinema.
He wanted to taste the flavor of Oscar like AR Rehman who won the best music director award for ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ and Aamir Khan who at least got to step at the doorstep of Oscar for his crically acclaimed film, ‘Lagaan’. Shahrukh Khan was the first choice of Oscar winner ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ for Anil Kapoor’s role but he had no qualm in rejecting the offer and went ahead to seek Preity Zinta’s advice.
King Khan had reportedly asked Preity Zinta to introduce her to the critically acclaimed director Deepa Mehta on their trip to South Africa for the IPL so that he can do some serious cinema with her after he came to know that Preity has teamed up with Indian-Canadian filmmaker Deepa Mehta for her next film.
