Has Shahrukh Khan missed out a big opportunity to woo Tamil audience? The King Khan has been putting his best efforts to increase his fan base in the state. It was all begun with his prestigious Ra One where he not only roped in Rajinikanth to play a cameo but also dubbed it in Tamil. His initiative did not go waste, as his film did reasonably well at the Box Office.
Shahrukh Khan tried to get closer with the Tamil audience in his next movie Chennai Express too, as the film was set in Tamil Nadu. Not to forget, some of the popular names from Kollywood worked for this flick. Even during the promotions of this movie, he had expressed to wish to work in Tamil films.
Why Tamil Films?
One would easily raise question why Shahrukh Khan is trying to impress Tamil audience. And the answer is that the Bollywood movies has a least market in Tamil Nadu comparatively with Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Kerala. Here, cine-goers hardly watch Bollywood flicks. Hence, many including Shahrukh is trying to increase their base along with the Hindi market.
Well, coming back to Shahrukh Khan's lost opportunity of working in a Tamil movie, reports say that an offer had reportedly knocked his doors but he couldn't do it for some reasons.
The King Khan had given his consent to work in the flick but he opted out in the later stage. It made director R Balki to approach an actor, who would be accepted by Tamil as well as Hindi audience.
