Who ever thought there are only Twitter wars surrounding B-Town celebs, job offer is a first off! With some of the ladies in Bollywood like Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone looking westwards, Indian fans have been wondering if any big actor of Bollywood will pursue Hollywood. Seems like their wish just came true in case of Shah Rukh Khan.
If you are a fan of science-fiction series Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency and Shah Rukh Khan, you are in for a treat. The King Khan of Bollywood has been invited to guest star on season 2 of the BBC drama which is based on Douglas Adams’ novel series of the same name!
Yes, that’s right! It all started when SRK expressed his pleasant surprise when he realized that Dirk Gently is now a TV series. He put a photo of himself and captioned “Dirk Gently is a TV series!! And I didn’t know it! Woe be upon me. Sorry, Adams. The pic is for no apparent reason.”
And it all escalated quickly when show’s executive producer Arvind Ethan David responded to the tweet. He took the opportunity to ask the Bollywood superstar to star in it. He wrote, “Amazing to discover that @iamsrk is a #dirkgently fan. Come guest star in #Season2. It’s possible I got a bit too excited that #ShahRukhKhan likes #dirkgently — do you think he noticed?”
Shah Rukh too responded quickly and wrote, “Let me know the time and place. Will figure out my own accommodation!”
Arvind was on board saying, “Done and done!”
Wow! yes. This means we will see Shah Rukh Khan in a western venture which is Douglas Adams’ novel series which follows the story of a holistic detective who investigates cases involving the supernatural. The show stars Samuel Barnett, Elijah Wood, Hannah Marks and Fiona Dourif.
