Shahrukh Khan (SRK) Steal the Show at Raavan London Premiere



Raavan much hyped premiere in London wasn’t only about crazy fans and thumping of dhols.

Even as Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya basked in the limelight at the British Film Institute, Shah Rukh Khan’s presence on the red carpet — with his wife Gauri and daughter Suhana — cut a more interesting picture.

SRK and the Bachchans, who were believed to be involved in a cold war, bonded big time at the premiere.

Also, it’s interesting to note that SRK was the only star to make an appearance on the red carpet besides Raavan ’s cast and crew. And King Khan was full of praise for the film and the Bachchans.

“ Aishwarya, Abhishek, Amit ji , Mani Ratnam — all my favourite people here. It couldn’t be a better evening to meet your friends, see such wonderful performances, see one of the finer films the country has made... the kids are very fond of Abhishek... so they all wanted to be here ( London),” said SRK. SRK and the Bachchans’ latest show of bonhomie comes after SRK backed out from IIFA awards at the last minute citing “ too much work.” For those who came in late, Big B is the brand ambassador of IIFA. SRK was also supposed to captain the film team in a friendly cricket match against the Sri Lankan team.

In 2008, SRK raised eyebrows when he attended the red carpet premiere of Drona . Since then, SRK and the Bachchans have been very warm to each other.

For the uninitiated, the rivalry between SRK and Bachchans reportedly kicked off after SRK replaced Big B as the host of the TV show Kaun Banega Crorepati and also acted in the remake of the Amitabh Bachchan’s 1978 hit, Don . But for some time now, the Bachchans and Shah Rukh have been bonding through Twitter. A few days back, Big B tweeted: “ Shah Rukh ! ( I) believe Abhishek spoke to you about the premiere in London and you, Gauri and the kids are all coming... Wonderful ! See you there.” SRK had tweeted back promptly: “( I) will do sir... ( I) hope I finish all work here and make it. ( I am) very excited to see Raavan . All the best to all and love.” SRK, who is believed to be busy with his ambitious home production Ra. One , specially took out time to reach London for the premiere.

The Bachchans can’t seem to thank him enough. Big B has thanked SRK repeatedly through his Twitter account. “ Spoke to Gaurima ( SRK’s wife Gauri). We now need to do a night back in Mumbai. Thank you again for coming. You made my night!” tweeted Junior Bachchan. At the premiere Abhishek said “ Shah Rukh is like family”. SRK and the Bachchans seem to be going all out with their friendship. Khan said at the premiere that he is “ a little biased towards Abhishek” adding that Ash is a way too fantastic an actor for him to comment on.

Later he tweeted to Big B: “ Thanks sir ( I) had a great time... the film is really nice.”
