Fantastic response to Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.
The viewers had given fantastic response to the film Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. Sharukh Khan had acted in minimum number of films in 2008, that is only two, if Bhootnath is counted, and it is one if any major role is taken into consideration. Furthermore the heroine in the film Anushka Sharma is a new actress who is not known in bollywood films.
Inspite of all this Shahrukh Khan had shown the viewers why he is still considered King Khan. Within the first week itself the film had fantastic collections and has all the indications of becoming hit in due period of time. Shahrukh Khan during the earlier part of 2008 had involved himself in Indian Cricket League by sponsoring Kolkata Knight Riders under the captainship of Saurav Ganguly.
For those reasons who could not devote much of his time in the first part of the year. In the film Bhootnath which was made for children, Shahrukh Khan acted in the role of the father of the main child actor who got involved with Big B in the film. In strict sense it was not Shahrukh Khan’s major role at all.
Besides, in 2008, already bollywood had produced a number of hit films althrough the year. The list starts with Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai’s film Jodha Akbar, Akshay Khanna, Katrina Kaif’s Race, Imran Khan’s Jane Tu Ya Jane Na, Salman Khan, Sunny Deol’s Heroes, Ajay Devgan’s Golmaal Returns, Akshay Kumar’s Singh is Kinng, to name a few. With Shahrukh Khan not acting in any major film, his viewers thought that he had run out of the rat race.
Shahrukh Khan bounced back with a bang. He had worked even with Anushka Sharma, who has just started his career with the film. According to the requirement of the story, he started the film with the make up of a middle-class person. The song “hole hole ho jayega pyar” in the film was picturised with Shahrukh Khan in his middle-class make up.
There was a dance competition in the town where Shahrukh Khan and his wife participated in the film. Shahrukh Khan changed his make up and reduced his age for the dance competition.
From that time onwards Shahrukh Khan acted with his known mannerisms and amazed the viewers. One fact is evident. Shahrukh Khan had a lot of energy during the 90s and even today. Whenever he appears in bollywood films his energy and enthusiasm is exhibited which carries the films towards success.
Although by performing in less number of films he had not competed in the bollywood rat race in the fullest sense of the term, but his late performance at the end of the year shows that he is still an important contender of filmfare awards and will contribute towards earning more revenue for the industry.
