Shah Rukh Khan OTT Debut: Super Star of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan has been pondering on the idea of whether he should hop on the OTT bandwagon like the rest of his contemporaries for a very long time. His fellow actors such as Akshay Kumar, Saif Ali Khan and Ajay Devgn have all had their share of OTT releases and projects since its boom.
The king of Bollywood also made ads, which showed his FOMO, the Disney+ Hotstar ad, that had SRK standing in the balcony of Mannat and waving to fans, while his manager dejectedly tells him that his ideas have been rejected. In the ad, Disney Plus Hotstar supposedly calls the manager and has rejected his idea for a crime drama, as Ajay Devgn had already announced one.
Horror comedy?” SRK asks hopefully. But the manager responds that Saif has already usurped that idea. He asks about action thriller, but he gets the response, “IPL is on, isn’t it?” SRK asks about college romances, and his manager sighs, “90’s are over.” A frustrated SRK asks, “Then what do I do? Dance? “They don’t want a reality show.” The ad ends with ‘to be continued’ screen. Salman Khan shared the ad on his Instagram with the caption, “Hmmm Swagat nahi karoge SRK ka?”
But today, on 15th March, he has posted a picture of himself with his arms wide open, and the picture said ‘SRK+ coming soon’ and the caption read, “Kuch Hone Wala Hai OTT ki Duniya mein”. Has the Badshah of Bollywood decided through which platform he is going to make his mark in the OTT world? Well, too bad as there is no proper conformation yet, but still, we wish the The King all the very best in his projects.
Shah Rukh Khan is currently shooting for filmmaker Atlee’s yet-untitled actioner with South star Nayanthara. Besides, the actor is also working on Siddharth Anand’s action film Pathan with Deepika Padukone and John Abraham.
