The entertainment world is abuzz with rumours that Shah Rukh Khan will soon make his debut on the digital platform. According to sources, King Khan has agreed to star in an OTT series, which will be hosted by Disney-Hotstar. Sources close to the situation are cautiously optimistic about the story. Although it is also known that Shah Rukh has not agreed to work on any specific project or platform.
“It is true he has been offered gazillions of digital projects. Every major OTT platform has come forward with a carte blanche: all he has to do is say ‘yes’, for a staggering price. But he is yet to make up his mind about any particular platform or project,” SpotboyE quoted a source as saying.
In terms of a Disney-Hotstar collaboration, Shah Rukh Khan is receptive to the notion. However, this is not the case. He hasn’t accepted the offer. We can only wait and see how the talks progress.
The assumption arose after Shah Rukh Khan joked about his concern of keeping away from OTT platforms in a recent advertising for streaming giant Disney+ Hotstar, which his fans and media outlets mistook for an indication of his forthcoming entrance on the site.
The video opened with Shah Rukh Khan waving to his fans from his balcony, boasting that no other celebrity can attract such a large gathering outside their home. However, his manager stated that he is unsure about the superstar’s future because all of the greatest stars, with the exception of him, have now joined the OTT bandwagon. SRK posted the video to social media with a comment, “Hmmmm….Picture toh abhi baaki hai….mere doston… #SiwaySRK.”
