They came, they waited and they left, disappointed. We’re talking of the team of Khichdi-The Movie, who turned up to meet Shah Rukh Khan at his residence, Mannat, on Friday.
Producer Jamnadas Majethia had sent a letter to the superstar requesting him to unveil their film’s first look. But even after reading out the letter to the security, they were refused entry, even though Khan was reportedly home and aware of who had come calling.
JD Majethia points out that this is the first time a serial is being turned into a feature film and since SRK had earlier successfully made the transition from the small screen to big screen, they wanted his good wishes. “Most couples go to see the Taj Mahal after their wedding because it’s a monument of love.
Likewise, since we’re moving from TV to films, we wanted to unveil our film outside Shah Rukh’s Mannat.” Interestingly, the star’s good friend, director-choreographer Farah Khan, plays a cameo in Khichdi – The Movie, which also has Satish Shah, Deven Bhojani and Dinyar Contractor playing new characters.
