SHAHRUKH KHAN and RITUPARNA SENGUPTA
Fikar not, this knot is not going to be tied in real life! Bollywood's King Khan Shahrukh Khan and Tollywood Queen would be playing husband-wife in an AD film for Emami's Chyawanprash, for which they are going to shoot in Mumbai's Film City.
SRK plays a commoner in the AD and Rituparna his wife. And, of course, it's the chyawanprash that keeps them together.
Well, SRK and Rituparna still have one more connection... Rituparna is doing a film called SRK with Vinay Pathak and she even cheered his Kolkata Knight Riders in the first IPL season. Now that she is working with him, she is super excited and nervous! As for SRK, he thought she did a great job in her film, MAIN MERI PATNI AUR WOH and also remembered her from the IPL match, so it didn't take him much to do the Ad film.
The ad film will be directed by Ram Madhvani, who directed the song 'Bheja kum' in TAARE ZAMEEN PAR. Madhvani admits that he is looking forward to working with the Bong beauty for the first time. The ad will be on air by October end. Rituparna, in the meanwhile, is busy working for her Bengali films and also for Bollywood film. She is currently working for Priyadarshan's film starring Akshaye Khanna, Ajay Devgan and Bipasha Basu.
