No Shah Rukh Khan in Om Shanti Om 2!

Rumors have it in the media that Shah Rukh Khan may not appear in the sequel of 2007 hit Om Shanti Om. There are speculations suggesting that director Farah Khan could rope in Salman Khan for the male lead role in Om Shanti Om 2.

Shah Rukh’s strained relationship with Salman Khan is not a secret anymore and everybody knows the two stars always avoid each other since their high-profile bust up at the birthday party of Katrina Kaif.

Farah Khan, the director of Om Shanti Om, has recently stepped up to bridge up the gap between Shah Rukh and Salman. However, it may not be that easy for Farah as the two actors still have hatred for each other.

Recently, Salman Khan said to the media, “What Shahrukh does or says is not of the least interest to me but he is one of the most insecure actors. If he could get rid of that he would actually be a nice fellow.”

Indian daily, Hindustan Times, recently reported that Salman and Farah Khan met in a television show recently. During their discussions about various things, it was revealed that Salman Khan was initially offered the lead roles of Main Hoon Na and Om Shanti Om, but Shah Rukh later bagged both the movies.

Both the movies worked very well in the box office and Shah Rukh was nominated for Flimfare Best Actor award for his performance in both the movies.

It was also revealed in the same TV show that Salman Khan could be Shah Rukh’s replacement in the sequels of both the movies. Though Farah and Salman were not in serious mode at that time and it could be nothing but a joke, there are reasons Farah Khan could opt for Salman for the sequels of the two movies.

The friendship of Farah and Shah Rukh is well-known in the industry, but reports in the media suggest that their friendship is not as sweet as it was once. So, Farah may have already started to think about life without Shah Rukh Khan.

However, it is still a rumor that Salman Khan would play the male lead roles in Main Hoon Na 2 and Om Shanti Om 2 as nothing has been confirmed yet.

  1. Why would a choreographer caste someone who can't move well to fill the shoes of one of the more graceful and charismatic actors around? I won't pay to see Salman in anything SRK did first and best...
