There has never been a superstar more charismatic than Shah Rukh Khan in Bollywood. He is not only one of the most commercially successful actors but also rules our hearts like a true Badshah.
Besides an amazing acting talent, SRK has a sharp sense of humor, too. His wit has always been appreciated. But who knew that Shah Rukh Khan excels in doodling as well.
According to Mid-Day, SRK, while on a trip to Paris in 1997, drew this doodle which is being sold at a whopping price today. The doodle completely depicts Shah Rukh’s idea of France — it has the Bastille, the Concorde, Voltaire, the French Revolution, the French connection, King Kong climbing the Eiffel Tower with the damsel in distress, a pair of lips to denote French kissing and French General Charles de Gaulle.
Adding a little Bollywood touch to his Doodle, he has depicted the damsel in distress screaming, “Bhagwan ke liye mujhe chhor do” and it also has a Govinda-Karisma Kapoor track, “Tu Mera Hero No 1“. At the end, SRK ended up his doodling with the words: “In Paris, do as the Indians do.”
Now the doodle by Shah Rukh Khan is a part of film journalist-critics collection and is being sold somewhere between Rs 1.2 lakh and Rs 1.8 lakh.
Osian founder-chairman Neville Tuli told mid-day,
The rare sketch is more like a doodle-cum-drawing of Shah Rukh’s visit to Paris. It provides a unique insight into the mind of a cinematic superstar in the making. Though estimated conservatively between Rs 1.2 lakh to R1.80 lakh, it is expected to sell for more. With several cinematic personalities increasingly trying to discover other facets to their creativity, especially with the fine visual arts, we are expecting to widen this section in the next auction.
So, guys, keep doodling. You never know when you become a star and your doodles start minting money!
