Mumbai, by Kabir Ali
As if having the most charismatic Mr. Khan as the host of &TV’s India Poochega… Sabse Shaana Kaun? wasn’t enough, more charm was added when Sushant Singh Rajput paid a visit recently to promote his film Detective Byomkesh Bakshi. Just a glimpse of Sushant is enough for girls to go swooning and they got to see both their eye candies together. Sushant admitted that he is the biggest fan of Shah Rukh and he got his way around with the girls as a teenager courtesy the actor. When in high school, any guy’s eligibility as a bachelor shot up many notches if he imitated SRK and that’s exactly what Sushant and his friends would do. He admits that he won himself a lot of girlfriends only because of Shahrukh’s style of romance.
Just like his teenage years, Sushant acted like SRK on the sets and encouraged the contestants by playing games with them. SRK explained the concept of the Indiawale Express to Sushant and had him play the ‘Shaanapan’ round with the contestants. Sushant even told SRK that he had come on the sets of ‘Swades’ and once even danced behind him at an awards show. But the icing on the cake for Sushant was when SRK himself praised him as one of the finest contemporary actors.
So, it was a win-win for everyone. The audiences saw two heartthrobs together and Sushant got compliments from his idol!
