On the sidelines of the filming of ‘Dilwale’ in Hyderabad, Shahrukh Khan and his crew visited Mahesh Babu on the sets of his upcoming Telugu film ‘Brahmotsavam’, but there is apparently more to it than meets the eye as SRK is reportedly keen that Mahesh Babu can make special appearance in ‘Dilwale’, the way Rajinikanth played it in ‘Ra-One’.
Mahesh Babu and his wife former Bollywood actress Namrata Shirodkar with theer kids welcomed Shahrukh Khan on to the sets and took them around. Later Mahesh Babu posted the pictures on Instagram to thank SRK for his vist saying he was ‘humbled.’
On his Facebook Page, Mahesh Babu said, “It was a pleasure meeting Shah Rukh Khan on our ‘Brahmotsavam’ sets today. The entire cast and crew were thrilled.. Thanks Sir.. Humbled.” Soon, Shahrukh Khan replied saying, “It was my pleasure actually.”
Mahesh Babu again returned the gesture saying he would meet the actor once again and share Hyderabadi food with him before he leaves the city, where he is currently shooting for ‘Dilwale’.
The undercurrents are, however, different. Shahrukh Khan is known for his efforts to rope in regional film mega stars in his films. In ‘Ra-One’, he had scored a point when Rajinikanth agreed to play a cameo, a rare gesture from the southern hero. In Chennai Express, he returned the gesture with a full song on ‘Rajini Sir’ by Yo Yo Singh.
The talk of the town is that Shahrukh Khan may be prodding Mahesh Babu to play a cameo role in his film ‘Dilwale’, which can be kept under wraps until the end as jackpot. It remains to be seen whether Mahesh Babu would accept it or just keep their next meeting to mere dining table.
Otherwise, Shahrukh Khan is for some strange reason on a spree of meeting Hyderbad’s famous names this time, including Saina Nehwal with whom he shared a ‘batty selfie’ with a caption:”Love All: How Shah Rukh Khan Beat Saina Nehwal at Her Own Game.”
It was a pleasure meeting @iamsrk on our Brahmotsavam sets today. The entire cast and crew were thrilled.. Thanks Sir.. Humbled 🙂
