Riding high on the success of Ra.One Shahrukh Khan seems more confident than ever. Success does give one wings I guess especially if the someone is King Khan. With ‘Don 2’ lined up for a Christmas release and the entire industry expecting it to be a bigger hit than Ra.One Shahrukh Khan is trending his way carefully with future offers.
It seems that Shahrukh Khan will not be hosting ‘Wipeout: Zor Ka Jhatka 2’. The King Khan himself made this clear during an interview with a leading daily. Khan also made it clear that the only reason he did the first season of the show was to gather some money which was to be invested in Ra.One. The amount seemed sumptuous too. Rs 40 crores are no joke after all – came straight from the horse’s mouth. Not to mention Shahrukh’s performance in the show was nothing worth watching.
We all have seen how well the King Khan handles witty hosting. Consider his performance at the Filmfare awards for example. That set his level to something which is difficult to be at par with. The die-hard fans of Shahrukh Khan sure expected an excellent performance in the show as well. However it seems all of them were only disappointed. Be it the double meaning talk, the poor VFX or the dance with Priyanka Chopra everything seemed to lack the charm of SRK.
Despite his continued trials to hit the funny nerve he could not manage the laughs that the original show generated. Ever since SRK started doing films after his initial two television shows ‘Fauji’ and ‘Circus’ he has never been a success with television. It seems his performance on the television screen always receives the cold shoulder. Be it ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ or ‘Kya Aap Panchvi Paas Se Tez Hain’ nothing seems to have ever worked for the King Khan. Fans should now take a breather that SRK has finally realized his failure with the television screen. Interesting news coming in is that SRK is expected to shoot for Yash Chopra’s directional venture with Bollywood queen Katrina Kaif the coming year. Now this is something that we expect of the star that SRK is. Isn’t it?
