If there is one star who can step in the shoes of another superstar, then it has to be Bollywood Badshah Shah Rukh Khan. Yes, SRK has been one star, who has never shied away from playing the characters that have been enacted by yesteryear icons.
After tragedy King Dilip Kumar, the 'King of Romance' Shah Rukh Khan essayed the role of 'Devdas' in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus DEVDAS and went on to win everyone's hearts. Then, he reprised the role of Amitabh Bachchan in the remake of DON, helmed by Farhan Akhtar. SRK even charmed by grooving on the reprised version of 'Khaike Paan Banaraswala' from the film DON. He danced much like Big B and left everyone in awe.
Now, the Badshah is set to step in evergreen star Dev Anand's shoes! Well, going by the latest reports, SRK plays a tourist guide in Imtiaz Ali's next, much like Devsaab in the film GUIDE. His character goes through lots of twists and turns. His character has a moral epiphany that changes his life and that of others he encounters.
Though he is playing a similar character, the Imtiaz Ali directed film is not a remake of GUIDE.
If it turns out true, the it would be really interesting to check Shah Rukh in this new avatar. With that we wonder if SRK will also adopt Devsaab's mannerisms. Well, lets wait and watch!
