Shahrukh Khan's New Year resolution? Not to do any more guest appearances or cameo roles in films for friends! Yes, the Bollywood Badshah has come to this reluctant decision even though his short and special appearances have often proved to be the good luck factor for filmmakers close to him. It's done always as a gesture of love and goodwill - at no charge, and, at best, takes just two days out of the superstar's busy schedule. Yet SRK has said enough is enough, "I always end up hurting myself."
The actor, who is busy shooting for Karan Johar's My Name Is Khan in LA, admitted that he's going to stick by his resolution. He's done many guest appearances recently, including films like Achanak, Army, M F Husain's Gaja Gamini, Har Di Jo Pyaar Karega, Samar Khan's Kuch Meetha Ho Jaye, Saathiya, Boney Kapoor's Shakti - The Power, Khalid Mohammed's Silsilay, Alag and Karan Johar's Kaal, Sajjid Nadiadwala's Heyy Babyy, Rakesh Roshan's Krazzy 4, and Ravi Chopra's Bhootnath. But, he dislikes being mentioned in the publicity of the films because it sends the wrong signal and viewers then expect him to have a larger role in the films.
If sources are to be believed, the big fallout between Salman Khan and Shahrukh last year came after the Bollywood Badshah refused to do a guest appearance in Sohail Khan's film Main Aur Mrs Khanna starring Salman and Kareena Kapoor. But Sohail's dates clashed with Vivek Vaswani's Dulha Mil Gaya which was already awaiting a guest appearance by SRK to be complete. He might just bend his resolution for Vivek Sharma's Kal Kissney Dekha because Vivek has worked in his office for 14 years. But that again depends on Shahrukh's schedule once he returns from LA. And how strong or weak he is about keeping New Year resolutions!
