2001 : A CINEMA ODYSSEY
Khushi Kabhie Gham
April/ May 2001
Shah Rukh Khan
Small by Shah Rukh standards, large by Santosh Sivan standards.
love story woven around the transformation of a prince into a warrior
and then again into the peace-loving Emperor Asoka.
It's Worth Waiting For:
There are two gigantic names involved. Santosh Sivan aka 'the God of Lighting'
has his own global fan following amongst a segment of film buffs who are
almost untouched by Bollywood. Shah Rukh Khan of course, has a huge fan
base in India and overseas and the combination of the two may just create
a film that crosses boundaries and finds a new audience for Shah Rukh
beyond the traditional NRI markets. Visually it is bound to be an exciting
film. Plus, this will be the first time that Shah Rukh and Kareena Kapoor,
who is currently the most exciting young actress, come together.
