A clipping from Josh flashed on the monitor during the audio-visual round in the grand finalé of Dadagiri Unlimited when suddenly, the crowd started cheering as if marking the grand entry of the “special guest” for the evening.
But, ‘bade bade deshon mein aise chhoti chhoti galtiyan hoti rehti hai’. Shah Rukh ‘Don’ Khan was yet to touch base at Mohun Bagan Athletic Club. Akhir, Don ko pakadna mushkil hi nahin namumkin hai.
And then around 9.30 pm, there he was. Sporting a grey blazer, black tee and his red-framed glasses, the Badshah’s presence on the grounds needed no confirmation. A laser display and fireworks later, Kolkata was finally ready for some firebrand entertainment from King Khan. “Thank you very much, thanks a lot,” said Khan to the Kolkata crowd as pleasantries were exchanged between Dada and Badshah.
As for Shah Rukh, he took just five minutes to flaunt a natural and no gel look. He too was happy with the result.”
And so were the crowd as they savoured the best of the googlies between the Titans. While Sourav’s one, “Jitna dekhta hai, admi hansta hai aur jab nahi dekhta hai, toh aansu peetein hai” had SRK requesting, “Make it easier or I’ll look dumb”, Badshah’s teaser soon after, “There is a truck. You go out, I come in. What does the truck become?” had Dada racking his brains for an answer.
Thus the duo, wowed, joked and sang each others’ praises till SRK gave the parting shot, “Inshallah, if Knight Riders wins this time, I’ll come and dance for all of you.” Om Shanti Om!(TNN)
