It was truly a Badshahi day for the Badshah of Indian Cinema. He came, he saw and he conquered. In the midst of receiving his Club Fellowship from Yale, shooting for his next and cheering his team Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens, Shah Rukh made up time for brand Bengal. Yes, two months back, Shah Rukh was anointed as the Brand Ambassador for the State of West Bengal and he has already started his trip to take the State and the city which he calls his ‘second home’ to the next level. He has always tried to breeze in through his favourite city whenever he has got an opportunity and made the crowd go Mad. This time too, it was no different.
Yesterday, he choppered into the remote district of Chandrakona in West Bengal, the region where the Prayag Film City is built and Chhammak Chhallo-ed into the hearts of the crowd wooing them with his enticing moves to the Akon rendition. Shah Rukh is definitely a magician. He gave a speech for the event and spoke about his ties with Bengal.
“It is apt for the project to be envisaged in such a culturally rich State like West Bengal. It is one territory where people love their films”, said the 46 year old actor, who was reportedly going backpacking in West Bengal for a tourism campaign designed by director Shoojit Sircar.
After about 30 odd minutes, before he was about to leave the film city, Shah Rukh gave his hand impressions that was done to be a part of the Movie Museum built inside the 1000 acre area.
Shah Rukh is definitely the Man of the Moment and the Man of All Seasons. He is one of those few ordinary men with an extra-ordinary touch to Life. He has got an unusual Midas touch: Anything he touches turns into Gold. We just wish the same for Prayag Film City. Though only Phase ! is opened to general public, as of now, Shah Rukh is mighty pleased with the way the project is shaping. Boy oh boy! Did Shah Rukh manage to charm Chandrakona? He just didnt manage to do it, he hammered it completely!
While the crowd goes crooning over our nations’s hero whose name is Khan and is not a terrorist, Indian government have called for an explanation from The United States of America in regard to Shah Rukh’s detention. This was not the first time, he was detained for having a Muslim surname. Previously he was detained at the Newark airport around two years ago.
All steps are being taken by the Indian government to prevent such mishaps in the future. Well, that is quite a good sign. SRK ka jaadu chal gaya!
