Diwali 2007 saw the big launch of four rising stars
While Sanjay Leela Bhansalis Saawariya launched Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor, Farah Khans Om Shanti Om launched Deepika Padukone and SRKs new look with six-pack-abs!
It was almost like the real reincarnation of Shah Rukh for the later half of the film! And it seems like, the six-pack-abs have been the most successful of all!
Never before has the tried his hands on anything like this! The sweetheart of millions never felt the need to show his skin to win (the audiences). But now, when he did its different!
Not for fighting a villain, accompanied by a troop of sub-villains, nor for being a daring hero in an adventurous thriller, not even for reinventing a Hollywood superhero-flicker for the desi audience This six-pack new entry was solely for an item number! And his new look emerges as a clear winner amongst all the classic tales, gorgeous sets and striking star-kids of Saawariya!
"Shah Rukh Khan looks amazing in his six-pack abs. He seems to be springing around with his new packed zeal. He is no doubt the Bollywood King," gushes Priyanka Hoon, a housewife is Gurgoan who watched the first day first show on Friday.
In spite of the nation-wide mania of SRKs new look, the King is oozing with modesty, Thanks but the six-pack abs is hyped. Its as good as growing a beard for Chak De. The second half of the film required me to look like the current crop of stars with long hair and toned body. I worked towards it, and now I like it. My son always thought I was fat. But now he thinks I look stronger.
SRK always jumps on his toes to do something different! How he manages to look unusual in a usual masala film is still a wonder! He will wear white from top to toe, sport long hair, build abs at 40-plus and when no one agrees to make a film that is different, he decides to produce one himself!
With every daring act he is only earning more more money, more fans, more modesty and more titles. This time he had been tagged as the Fittest at Forty!
