In Farah Khan’s upcoming film Tees Maar Khan, it is SRK who is spoofed. The film has Akshaye Khanna playing an over-expressive, intense actor who suffers from backache and has to fly off to London for treatment.
If that doesn’t ring a bell, let’s remind you that SRK has had a medical procedure done in London to get rid of his backache problem.
Moreover, in TMK, Akshaye is approached for a role by an international filmmaker named Danny. Akshaye makes him wait for hours and then refuses to do the role which eventually goes to Anil Kapoor who wins an Oscar for his performance, leaving Akshaye gnashing his teeth with regret.
You may recall that British director Danny Boyle had first approached SRK to play the quizmaster in his multiple-Oscar winning film Slumdog Millionaire, but SRK turned it down and the role went to Anil Kapoor who won international acclaim through the film.
The similarities are startling. It’s clear that SRK is the butt of joke in Farah’s new film Tees Maar Khan which hits the theatres on December 24.
