2008 would go down as a year which would see Shahrukh Khan only in cameos / special appearances / item song appearances rather than enacting the part of a principal protagonist. The films in picture are Bhootnath, Dulha Mil Gaya and Krazzy 4, in each of which he would only have small part to play.
Incidentally each of these three films has a debutant director wielding the megaphone. While Bhootnath has Vivek Sharma at helm, Muddassar Aziz makes his debut with Dulha Mil Gaya. Also Krazzy 4, a Rakesh Roshan production, would mark the arrival of Jaideep Sen as a director.
Though the makers of Dulha Mil Gaya are proclaiming that the film has much more than just a special appearance by Shahrukh Khan, Ravi Chopra, producer of Bhootnath hasn't made any such claim. Moreover, it has been widely publicized that Krazzy 4 would utilize the services of Shahrukh Khan only for an item song sequence.
Now until and unless some quickie film happens (chances of which are remote), audience would have to wait to see him in a lead role once Karan Johar's tentatively titled KHAN happens in 2009!
