After all the publicity that the Chopras are used to doing, you cannot escape hearing the story of Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.
It’s a love story between a young girl and a much older man, where Shahrukh Khan plays the lead (oh, isn’t that obvious?). But despite numerous efforts, none of the filmmakers loyal to King Khan have been able to create a role apt for his age! Because despite playing his age in this film, he is not looking even close to charming… in the movie promos, at least!
Anyway, that is not the issue with Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. The issue is that the story is everything but refreshing. The old-young love stories have come and gone ‘n’ number of times in Bollywood!
Not that this story hasn’t tried to add a new twist. According to sources, this story is about SRK who is married to Anushka Sharma. There is a big age difference between them and they are not what you‘d call a perfect couple.
Now, there‘s a reality dance show called Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi . Anushka wants to take part in the dance competition but she can‘t because her husband is an old clumsy man.
Till here, the story is believable. Now, read on for the great ‘twist’…
Shahrukh overhears his wife‘s problem and decides to go for a makeover. He comes back to the dance show and woos Anushka off her feet. All the way through the dance competition, she keeps falling in love with him, without once realizing that the man she is dancing with is her real husband!
So, she dances in her own husband’s arms, without recognising him! Can you believe that?
Maybe it’s this disbelief, and nothing else that will drag you to the theatres!
