It was thought that Shah Rukh Khan is lying low and missing in action after announcing that he was not signing any new movies. After the failure of Zero, it was reported that King Khan had decided to take a step back and focus on his family. Well, wrong!  Shah Rukh Khan has a pivotal  part in this week’s film India’s Most Wanted. Though  he doesn’t make an  appearance  in person Shah Rukh is  a  constant  presence in the film starring Arjun Kapoor.The  terrorist-antagonist (whose  character is based  on  the  real-life militant Yasin Bhatkal) is  shown  as  a huge Shah Rukh Khan fan. In the film he talks about the superstar.

Apparently director Rajkumar Gupta  had  the  grace to seek Shah  Rukh Khan’s consent before using his name  in the  film. Says  Rajkumar, “It seemed  the  proper thing to do to ask Mr Khan if we could use his name  in  our film. He had no objection to being  part  of our film, through one of the character’s love for the superstar.” One doesn’t know if Shah Rukh Khan’s picture will be actually shown in the movie of if his presence will be indicated merely through dialogues.

Curiously  Yasin Bhatkal was not the  only  internationally-wanted  terrorist to be a fan of a Bollywood  star. Apparently Osama bin Laden  was  a big Sunny Leone fan!  

India’s Most Wanted has got good buzz in its early reviews. The film, based on a counter-terrorist operation led by the security forces features Arjun in a gritty role and according to sources who have caught the screenings, the tale, about the unsung heroes in the forces, has been told in a gripping and intriguing manner.
