February 15, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): Living life in King Khan’s shadow itself merits a documentary. What could be a better way to announce the same than by booking an entire show for ‘My Name is Khan’ on Valentine’s Day and distributing free tickets to SRK fans. When this move came from SRK duplicate Raju Rahikwar and journalist-documentary director S Ramachandran, ‘My Name is Khan’ director Karan Johar stood by them himself!
Other than Karan, singer Koli Datta, Sunny Deol duplicate Zahid, comedians Navin Prabhakar and Vishwajeet Prem, film critic Vijay Vashist and a horde of SRK fans thronged to watch the film.
S Ramachandran felt that, “Living in King Khan’s shadow merited a documentary as every twist in Khan’s life affected his shadow Rahikwar meriting an interesting tale.”
Raju felt that, “An actor should be kept out of political hues and hence the move of booking an auditorium to express his love and solidarity to his mentor.”
Karan was gracious to say, “Shahrukh would be flattered. It is a very nice thing to do. I felt touched at Raju Rahikwar’s gesture. I wish him all the luck for the documentary.”
