Shah Rukh Khan hasn't achieved his massive, meteoric success courtesy of dumb luck. To extend the metaphor, there’s nothing dumb about him. Ask anyone who has worked with the actor/entrepreneur and you will hear tales of how hardworking and ambitious SRK still is. Having witnessed him taking an injection to battle a fever while doing two magazine cover shoots simultaneously, I’ll testify to his commitment to work first-hand. This tribute, however, is not to his monumental reputation or his hard-earned six pack abs. My homage is less brawn and more brain related.
On June 2, a day after his Kolkata Knight Riders won coveted Indian Premier League gold yet again, SRK posted an image of himself doing a celebratory cartwheel on his Twitter page. To go with the eye-catching photo, he added a note: “The Ab(s)RamSomesault continues to Kolkata now. Round & round. If I go on like this I will reinvent the wheel soon!!!” We’ll overlook the typo (what’s a missing ‘r’ amongst admirers), while we gush about the thought. First, the clever mention of his sonAbRam’s name, while drawing attention to his still-perfect abs. Then, the crack about reinventing the wheel. Pun pe pun. Well done!
