Shahrukh Khan refuses role of a porn star by Arindam Chaudhuri

10, Dec 2009 By Pagal Patrakar

Mumbai. Barely a couple of days after expressing the desire of becoming a porn star, Bollywood star Shahrukh Khan has refused an opportunity that would have allowed him to live his long cherished dream. Shahrukh has politely declined to act in a porn movie to-be-produced by Planman Motion Pictures, founded by Prof. Arindam Chaudhuri. Earlier, Shahrukh had expressed his desire to be a porn star while launching a book written by Prof. Chaudhuri.

According to well placed sources, the movie was tentatively titled “Dare To Kink Beyond The Bedrooms – discover the pornstar in you” and was to document a story of an exotic sex-maniac with a ponytail. Shahrukh was offered the role of this sex-maniac, who would go on a sexual escapade in public places with various partners, eventually killing one of them, who’d be reborn and avenge his/her death. The movie was to have songs and dance sequences and some tear-jerking moments to make it fit for Shahrukh, but the Bollywood star declined the offer.

“I was touched by their gesture but I’m not yet ready for such a role. Also, it was just a joke that I had cracked to suit the occasion. I guess they take jokes seriously and make a joke out of serious stuff.” Shahrukh said jokingly as dimples appeared on his cheeks and he looked oh-so-innocent for a wannabe porn star.

Planman Motion Pictures have expressed disappointment over Shahrukh’s reaction but they believe that if they keep on offering the role, he would finally accept it.

“We just have to be insistent and persistent in such matters. If you keep on repeating something, people eventually start believing it to be true. That’s our policy and we’d stick to it.” a Planman Motion Pictures spokesperson said, denying the possibility that the role could be offered to Salman Khan, who also sports a ponytail, or Amir Khan, who likes experimenting with roles.

“It’s a role tailor-made for SRK, we are not going to offer it to anyone, not even to our own ponytail sporting Arindam Chaudhuri.” The spokesperson quipped, later requesting Faking News not to quote him, but we decided to ignore his requests.
