There was a time when Shah Rukh Khan wanted to be part of every Karan Johar production in some way or the other. When he could not be accommodated in Karan’s Sidharth Malhotra directed We Are Family , SRK joined Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal to promote We Are Family as a ‘good luck charm’.
Even in Punit Malhotra’s 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.
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.
