How could it be that Karan Johar directs a film and not chalk out a meaty role for his best buddy Shahrukh Khan?
So recently when Johar unveiled the first look of his next film Student Of The Year - that will introduce new faces Varun Dhawan, Aaliya Bhatt and Siddharth Malhotra - eyebrows were raised because SRK was conspicuously missing from the credits.
Well, now we hear that SRK will indeed act in the film, apart from co-producing it with Johar. The actor will play a college professor whom the students adore.
Fans of the superstar might say they have already seen SRK playing similar roles in films like Mohabattein and Main Hoon Na.
But trust Karan Johar to make the character different. We hear he is taking a break from the hustle-bustle of Bollywood to work on the script and flesh out SRK’s character. We hope it won’t be just a cameo.
