Shah Rukh Khan is back home after shoulder surgery. He will not shoot for the next eight weeks. That doesn’t mean he’ll be twiddling his thumb — even at home, there’s a lot to do.
“Shah Rukh is an office in himself,” says Mushtaq Sheikh, scriptwriter, author and a friend. “He could be in bed and still run the entire Red Chillies Production [his company]. This man has some secret that the world is yet to know.”
The star is busy catching up with friends, too. While choreographer-director Farah Khan said she spent yesterday morning with SRK at his home, a source from his crew says, “Friends like Sajid Khan, Arjun Rampal and wife Mehr, Ritesh Deshmukh, and his family and friends from Delhi are also there.”
According to SRK himself, his plan is to “finish the incomplete scripts of future films, look into fresh projects and be around with the kids. Their exams are coming.” He concludes saying, “Even as I talk, there’s a lot more to do.”
In the first three weeks post-surgery, the actor would be totally under ‘house arrest’. But given that this is Shah Rukh Khan, he can turn this into an advantage, too. The star, a known gadget freak, loves going through the manuals that come with all his new gizmos. “Sir enjoys opening all the boxes and fixing every gadget,” says our source. “Be it a simple remote control or a PlayStation, he likes reading the details.
“The best time is when he sits down with the kids to get their toys and games started. It’s a sight to see.”
Once recovered, he will finish My Name is Khan before going into Farah’s next film and his own Ra.1. Till then, wish you speedy recovery, Shah Rukh.
