Danny Boyle, the internationally acclaimed film maker is not too impressed with the 'Bollywood ka Badshah' SRK! The Bitch reports that when Danny Boyle was hell-bound in casting either Big B or Shahrukh Khan to play the talk show host in his international movie Slumdog Millionaire as the two big stars held the big reputation to have hosted the very successful Kaun Banega Crorepati, talks with SRK fell flat as the actor did not find the honest intentions of the film impressive indeed.
While the reasons behind Big B's unavailability still remains unconfirmed, the Bitch's source claims, "When Danny Boyle went personally to meet Shahrukh Khan at his Mannat residence to talk him thro' the role, it was very surprising that the Super Star actor did not even have time to sit thro' the meeting. It was a shocking state of affair when SRK kept himself busy watering his plants and gardening, even while Danny waited to kick-start a conversation with the star about his film".
Well, as the saying goes, 'One person's loss is another's gain', and in all this, the person who won the 'Jackpot' role is the multi talented Anil Kapoor. For the uninitiated, Slumdog Millionaire is Boyle's project set in India. The film is said to be based on the bestselling novel, 'Q and A' by Vikas Swarup. An illiterate Indian street kid from Mumbai participates in KBC to reach his missing girlfriend, whom he knows watches the show religiously. He then goes on to win the jack pot on the show. The lead is played by a young new comer and there are not too many known faces in the film.
Pondering more on the strange behaviour of SRK towards Boyle, should we infer that the actor was trying to show-off his household skills before the master film maker? Has the star's act not contradicted the very notion that Indians treat their guests as God? Whatever be it, this incident has surely left a numb feeling in Boyle's mind and he showed it by not approaching the great star again for the role!
We just cannot get over the fact that SRK could turn so inhumane.. Is all this indicating to the fact that, all that matters to SRK is fame, name and glory? Keep a close watch on the Badshah's moves and you will surely get a hint!
