Second SRK docu out next month
Just one 10-episode documentary on superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s life did not satisfy his fans, it seems. Starting September 1, the second season of Living With A Superstar: Shah Rukh Khan will be telecast on Discovery TLC.tv Updated: Aug 27, 2010 12:06 IST
In a unique re-launch strategy, new episodes from Khan’s life will be aired every night for the first month at 10 pm, followed by a repeat telecast the next day at 11 pm.
About the success of the first edition, Khan says, "People contacted me with comments like, ‘We saw your life and it’s really nice’, ‘It’s nice to know your perspective about failure and success...’ and ‘we never knew that you also have fears and insecurities...’."
The first season of the show involved a camera crew literally living with the actor, interacting with his family and hanging around his film sets. At the time, Khan was shooting Karan Johar’s My Name Is Khan. This season will see him talking about his future plans in the industry and his forthcoming film, Ra.One.
Besides a look at the film sets, audiences will also see previews of the film, positioned as one of the most expensive movies ever. The episodes will even feature conversations with the film crew and Khan’s colleagues including Kareena Kapoor, filmmaker Gurinder Chadha, director Anubhav Sinha and artist MF Husain.
“The goal is to celebrate everyday life by sharing stories of people in remarkable circumstances. The show has provided Khan’s fans with an outlet to connect with the man himself,” said Rahul Johri, senior vice president and general manager, India, Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific.
Season one of the show was aired in February 2010, on Discovery Travel and Living. TLC, from September 1, will replace Travel and Living.
