If there is a mega star who never forgets to own the roots he hails from, it's
the ever modest Baadshah Khan, SRK.
Yet another time, he bids to return
to the small screen, after after having reigned the big one for close to two
decades. His very first encounters with the world of acting had been via TV
media in shows like Circus
more recent ones were anchor
stints, and most recently the superstar shot for Colors' newest show,
Sasural Simar Ka.
Apparently, the star was quite excited about his come-back what he calls
'home' and hence sort out some time from his choc-a-bloc schedule for the shoot
of the show which took place in Khan's Bandra residence, Mannat.
His agreement to do a cameo in the series is entirely credited to the plot,
which appealed the star Khan in an amusing way. It revolves around the story of
a girl who's willing to go any lengths to make her dreams of becoming a
professional dancer come true!
Barring his hosting of shows like Kaun Banega Crorepati, Kya Aap Paachvi
Paas Se Tez Hai, Zor Ka Zhatka, this is SRK's first appearance in a
daily-soap since he lodged himself as a star in B-Town.
In Sasural Simar Ka
, he plays a judge in a reality show Chak
, wherein Simar
strives to be one of the participating
dancers without bringing it to her family's notice.
While the trend of doing cameos in daily soaps has sort of picked up over
the last couple years - Rani Mukherjee-Vidya Balan (Naa Aana Iss Desh Meri
Laado); Abhishek Bachchan (Balika Vadhu); Salman Khan (CID), Akshay Kumar
(Sasural Genda Phool)... among others - this is certainly SRK's first time.
And while in all other cases the motivation is promotion of upcoming
films, SRK does it purely in the spirit of the show itself!
