SRK’s ‘good luck charm’ touch for ‘We Are Family’
Mumbai, Aug 28; Shah Rukh Khan would love to be part of every Karan Johar production in some way or the other. And he did exactly that when he turned up at a press meet with Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal to promote “We Are Family” as a “good luck charm”.
In “I Hate Luv Storys”, Shah Rukh did a small voice-over. Unfortunately he couldn’t be accommodated anywhere in “We Are Family” although the superstar was quite insistent on featuring somehow.
“Ek photo hi daal do kisi shot mein,” (At least put a photo in one shot), he kept urging Karan.
Not one to give up even when his wish had gone way past its fulfillment phase, SRK barged in sportingly at a media meet with Kareena and Arjun and insisted on conducting an interview with the pair… “Just as a good luck charm”, as he put it.
On Wednesday afternoon, SRK decided to drop in at the venue of the interview and said, “Even I am part of the family. So I’m joining them to promote the film.”
Director Siddharth Malhotra can’t get over the magic of the moment.
“It is such gestures that make Shah Rukh who he is. It is his ability to make people feel special that makes him the superstar and the king.”
Siddharth had entered the media meet when he saw an exceptional bustle at the venue. He jokingly asked what the clamour was about.
“‘SRK aa gaya kya?’ (Has SRK come?), I asked sarcastically. Imagine my surprise when someone turned around and said that’s precisely what has happened and that SRK was doing an interview with Kareena and Arjun for my film,” Siddharth said.
