MUMBAI: Shah Rukh Khan’s fans have seen little of the actor in 2009. After his Rab Ne Bana De Jodi released in the December of 2008, the actor has been in the news for his Indian Premier League team, Kolkata Knight Riders and its controversies and his US trip where he was questioned at length by the airport security authorities on India’s Independence Day. But the Badshah promises to change everything in 2010 as he gears up for an action packed year.
The year will begin with the release of Karan Johar’s My Name is Khan. In March SRK will get into the boots of a league owner and guide his team, KKR in the third edition of IPL. All of March and April, the actor will devote to his cricket team and ensure that his team puts up a better fight this year.
Shah Rukh will also start shooting for Farah Khan’s next film. The choreographer turned director is currently scripting her film and should be ready to roll by the end of the first quarter of the year. Come August, King Khan will gear up for Don. The sequel will be once again directed by Farhan Akhtar and has a long European schedule. Shooting for the film will be in the locales of London, Dublin and Frankfurt with a short schedule in Berlin. Also on the pipeline is Anubhav Sinha’s Ra 1 and another film with a debutant director.
Shah Rukh had to take it easy for some time as he was recuperating from a shoulder operation after he hurt himself shooting for Viveck Vaswani’s Dulha Mil Gaya. However, before the year ends, this film will release and audiences can get to see SRK in an extended special appearance for this film.
As they say there is always a lull before the storm and one can expect to see SRK in full action mode in 2010.
