View Star Gold Organized 'Comedy Honors' - Picture GalleryYash Raj's CHAK DE INDIA , starring Shah Rukh Khan and Vidya Malavade, has been kept away from the media glare. Except for the fact that it is based on India's National game hockey, and that SRK plays the coach of a women's team, not much is known or heard. The only official communique from Yash Raj has been in the form of the film's posters, available on their official website.


However, a lot of clips from the movie are available on Shah Rukh Khan's fan sites, specially from the Melbourne shoot of CHAK DE INDIA, in a stadium. One of the clips has an interesting sequence, whereby Shah Rukh Khan is seen dancing with the Melbourne based 'desi' dance troop, 'jhanak', to an inspirational/patriotic number from last years 45 crore earner, RANG DE BASANTI. The dance troop was specially invited to entertain the packed crowd in the stadium.

It will be interesting to see if this sequence is incorporated in CHAK DE INDIA (after the editing), once the Shimit Amin directed movie releases on August 10.
