Shahrukh upset with accusations of promoting OSO at cricket matches
Shahrukh Khan has recently been seen at a number of cricket matches, it began with the World Cup. SRK was seen at the stadium along with his son and was cheering for team India . Later after India’s victory against Australia, SRK even celebrated with the Indian cricketers on field. SRK has attended quite a few matches when India has played since then, and now the actor is being accused of attending the matches merely to promote his films like Om Shanti Om.
SRK has recently attended quite a few matches when India has played and he was even declared as their lucky mascot as they always won, when cheered on by King Khan himself. Recently SRK also attended a match played by India with co-star Deepika Padukone and wife Gauri Khan. This was seen by the BCCI (cricket board of India) as a mere stunt to promote his films like Om Shanti Om. However SRK claims this to be untrue and is extremely disappointed by this reaction that he has got. Shahrukh says that he has always brought along his kids with him while watching matches live as he wants to be a parent who encourages his children to get into sports. SRK is definitely not happy that the BCCI is turning his presence at matches into a controversy.
The esteemed Shantaram awards which include cinema from across the country was recently held and it was not solely for bollywood. Shahrukh was awarded the V Shantaram ‘Best Actor’ award for his performance in Chak De India. However a modest SRK has credited both his director and the 16 girls that he worked with in the film for its success. Shahrukh Khan along with Yash Chopra was present for the function where he was presented with the award; SRK said “It’s great, the credit should go to Shimit, Jaideep and the lovely 16 girls.” Director Shimit Amin also won awards for Best Director Silver and editing while also winning the Best Film Gold. Apart from bollywood, other industries too received awards like the Malyalam actress Meera Jasmine won the Best Actress award for the film Ore Kadal. The Awards for Best Music Director and cinematography were bagged by Mani Ratnam’s Guru. Lage Raho Munnabhai also fetched three awards for Best Supporting Actor, Best Story and Best Screenplay.
It seems that our King Khan who already has a beautiful home in the up market area of Jumeira Beach in Dubai, will now own another home in the prestigious Palm Islands of Dubai. Apart from homes, SRK is enjoying the super success of his film Om Shanti Om. Recently there was controversy when veteran actor Manoj Kumar was upset with SRK and director Farah Khan for making fun of him in OSO. However a humble Shahrukh apologised for the incident and claimed that there was no intention of hurting anyone’s sentiments. SRK even volunteered to remove the scene from the film spoofing Manoj Kumar. Now a book is being launched on the ‘The Making of Om Shanti Om’ which has been done by Mustaq Sheikh who has also earlier written a book on Shahrukh. In fact the large hearted SRK even invited Saawariya filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali and his entire team for the event. There was a clash of the two films at the box-office and eventually there was a lot of bitching too about each others films from both SRK as well as Bhansali’s camps.
