I am not the hero of Billu Barber: Shahrukh Khan
Shahrukh Khan, who is geared up for the release of his home production Billu, said in an interview that he is not the main lead of the film. Billu is a remake of a Tamil film Kuselan that had Rajnikanth playing Shahrukh’s role. In the promos of the film Rajni was projected as the hero of the film and when the audiences watched it they were plainly disappointed to see their hero as a mere sidekick of the actor in the barber’s role.
“At the outset, let me clarify that I am not playing the title role of the barber in my film. It is Irrfan Khan who is playing the protagonist,” said Shahrukh.
“It’s for the first time that I’ve had an opportunity to work with a director of his calibre (Priyadarshan). He’s one of the fastest directors around and has a great vision about every film that he sets out to direct,” he adds.
His three dance numbers with Deepika, Kareena and Priyanka have been used as good marketing tool for the film which has gained fast publicity. Was it meant purely for publicity purpose or what?
“We needed to have the medley of songs in Billu Barber because I play a superstar who is working with all the top actresses. Luckily for me, all the actresses agreed to be part of the song and adjusted their dates accordingly. In fact Kareena shot for the song just a day after I had asked her to oblige. I am indebted to all the actresses,” clarifies SRK.
We wish him luck for the film… After all its a Priyadarshan film and we expect it will atleast be half as good as Bhool Bhulaiyya or Hera Pheri.
