Shahrukh Khan Cameos on Sasural Simar Ka

 

Shah Rukh Khan is out to boost his PR  through a series of TV appearances.

While most movie stars tend to shun  daytime TV, apart from commercial endorsements, this hardworking star actually got his start on serials like Fauji and Circus over two decades ago. SRK  has also dabbled as a host on reality shows like Kaun Banega Crorepati, Kya Aap Paanchvi Paas Se Tez Hain, and Zor Ka Jhatka.

Now the megastar is preparing to thrill soap fans with a cameo appearance on “Sasural Simar Ka,” which airs on Colours.

Rumour has it that Sharukh had little time to devote to the shoot and asked the production team to film at his house. According to sources, “Shah Rukh plays himself as the judge of a fictitious dance show Chak Dhoom Dhoom, in which the show’s protagonist, Simar, participates without her father’s knowledge.”

Soap actress Deepika Samson was excited about sharing airtime with SRK:” it was a once in a lifetime experience to shoot and be around him. I initially froze, but he made me feel so comfortable.”

It wasn’t easy for show producers to convince Shahrukh to appear on the serial. A source stated, “the serial is a highly anticipated fiction show, especially because it marked the return of Avika Gor. It wasn’t easy to convince SRK, considering his schedule, but the story appealed to him because the protagonist’s story resembles his own life.”

It is unknown how many times Shahrukh will appear on the show. The channel is keeping this information quiet and hoping unprecedented numbers will tune in to possibly catch a glimpse of the beloved Bollywood icon.
