The name Sharib Hashmi may not ring a bell. However, if one jogs the memory hard, he would be remembered as the man who played a small but an important part of Shahrukh Khan's Pakistani roommate in Yash Chopra's Jab Tak Hai Jaan.

Things are expected to change drastically for Sharib who would now be seen in National Award winning Filmistaan, where he plays the main lead and a central protagonist. 

"The film is set as a laugh riot about a film buff who wants to become an actor in Bollywood, only to find himself being held hostage by Pakistani terrorists. It is a hilarious affair because in any given circumstance, this man unleashes the Bollywood side of him," informs a source. 

The makers wanted an actor who had an appearance of a common man and was a hardcore film buff himself. When Sharib auditioned for the part, they were bowled over and he was roped in.

SRK beats Salman to be the richest Bollywood celeb!

​​

He's the badshah of Bollywood and rightly so. Apart from his long standing career in the Hindi film industry, his personal life, his controversies, there's another reason why SRK stands out from the crowd. The actor has made it to the Forbes India Celebrity 100 list and there's no guesses for this one! King Khan dominated the list, capturing the Numero Uno position. As of December 31st, the actor makes 220.5 Crore through films and his many endorsements. SRK's last release Chennai Express broke all records at the Box Office and was one of the highest earners of 2013. According to the Forbes list, Shahrukh's revenue is up by 9% this year although he lost out on a few brand endorsements. There's no doubt that Shahrukh Khan is second to none!
