SRK to play himself in Bombay Duck?

The only celebrity character in Kanika Dhillon's book "Bombay Duck Is A Fish", whose name was not changed, was that of Shah Rukh Khan himself. The big question is, will SRK play himself in a movie version of the book?

Word is that Kanika's book, launched recently by Shah Rukh Khan, might be made in to a film soon. The debut author is also a writer on SRK's upcoming "Ra.One".

A source familiar with the situation says some of "the top studios and production companies are interested in bringing to the big screen the story in Kanika's book," about a girl's journey navigating love, life and career in the rough-and-tumble and the often ridiculous world of Bollywood and its personalities. With flamboyant characters rumored to be inspired by Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Farah Khan and other stars and celebs, it's no wonder producers think a movie of the same would get attention.



Needless to say, the Ra.One game will feature a car or two, as Shahrukh Khan will be seen driving a Porsche Cayenne SUV and riding a Ducati Monster motorcycle in the movie, apart from the specially designed "BatPod" kind of a superbike made exclusively for the Ra.One movie. Reports on the interweb suggest that the distribution rights for the Ra.One game could fetch a whopping INR 3 Crore, a first forBollywood.The Ra.One game, releasing in September, is said to be a prequel to the movie and is being developed to work on both the PS2 and PS3 gaming platforms. The game will play host to more than 20 game  play environments along with multi-player compatibility. For now, prices of the Ra.One hasn't yet been revealed although you can expect an announcement shortly considering the September launch of the game.Source:

You can't keep up with Shah Rukh Khan: Kanika Dhillon

Screenwriter Kanika Dhillon, who has co-written Shah Rukh Khan's, has now turned author. She's credited with SRK's catchy dialogue from the film - "Other heroes wear a mask, I wear a heart."

Kanika started out working as an assistant director to Farah Khan, on Om Shanti Om, and then moved on to Red Chillies's Billu Barber, which was directed by Priyadarshan. So, how's it having King Khan as a boss? "Well, Shah Rukh Khan is like an encyclopedia. His knowledge and sharp mind keeps everyone on their toes. You cannot keep up with his pace, but he is patient and gracious enough to help, gives you a chance and a platform to flourish and, most importantly, if he believes in you, he will stand by you, no matter what others have to say."
