While actors and actresses have strange demands while signing a script- such as Madhavan who insisted on an airport scene in Tanu weds Manu because he believed that the airport scene in 3 idiots worked wonders for him, or the rumour that Ayushmann Khurrana will sing at least one track in every film of his, we recently got to know that the Baadshah of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan has a couple of adamant demands himself.
SRK makes the production houses sign a contract that includes two conditions for the actor to be part of the film, apart from the several others. The first is a bit of an eye-brow-raiser, considering coochie-cooing is a thumb-rule for success at the box-office- He will not lock lips with his on-screen lady loves. It isn’t like he hasn’t done that (Read: Maya Memsaab), but he’s vowed to not kiss on screen. Hmm... strange yet understandable.
Prerequisite no. 2 is that SRK will not do any scenes riding on horseback. Hence the movie shouldn’t include them. Flashing in our minds is SRK in Baazigar with the horse and the whip- but that was eons ago. Now, post several spinal injuries and constant medical treatment, we completely understand if SRK wants to take care of his health even if it costs him the film.
But on the contrary, we’re sure filmmakers are willing to let go of their kissing and equine on-screen images for the sake for having King Khan rake in the moolah for them!
