You might have already known that Shah Rukh Khan bought one of the IPL franchises, Kolkata Knight Riders, which will take part in next month’s inaugural IPL Twenty20 tournament. Mr. Khan has already gone all the way to promote his team in best possible ways ahead of the tournament.
Report goes on that Shah Rukh will be seen hosting a television quiz show during April and May on one of the most popular television of the country. This is going to be the second time, Shah Rukh Khan will host a show after Star Plus’s Kaun Banega Crorepati.
As both the IPL and the show are expected to take away a big part of fan’s attraction, media analysts are now thinking that it might affect the Bollywood movie to be released during that time.
So it is but obvious that both Shah Rukh's television show and the IPL cricket tournament will have an adverse effect on the films releasing during those times. And will take away the audience that might otherwise have bought tickets for entertainment purposes.
Well, if that is going to be true that Shah Rukh Khan will also be affected a bit because three of his movies are going to hit the screens during April and May. In April, Krazzy 4 will come to the screen. However, Shah Rukh Khan will be seen in a special appearance in the movie. Shah Rukh Khan will play the lead role in the movie Dulha Mil Gaya, which is expected to get released in May 2008. Shah Rukh Khan makes another special appearance in Bhootnath where he will be seen sharing screen space with Amitabh Bachchan, for the first time after Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. Now, let us see what if IPL and Shah Rukh Khan’s television quiz show really affects Bollywood movies.
