Karan Johar (filmmaker, Shah Rukh Khan friend) took to social media to share that he didn’t think Shah Rukh Khan, known as the Baadshah Bollywood, would feel FOMO after actors like Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn have moved to OTT platforms.
This concept was the subject of a Disney+ Hotstar ad, which has been trending on social media. Netizens love it and have praised its content. Shah Rukh Khan is seen on the balcony with Rajesh Jais. SRK waves to the crowd of people outside his house. Rajesh is told by Shah Rukh that Dekha itne Saare Fans aate hai Kabhi Kisi Ke Ghar Ke Bahar (Have so many people gathered outside of any person’s house? Rajesh replied, “Nahi sir ab tak toh nahi dekha. Par aage Ka kuch Keh Nai Sakte (No sir, so far I haven’t seen). However, we cannot predict what the future will bring. Shah Rukh continues to wave at his fans and asks “Matlab” (What does that mean)? Rajesh replied, “Baki stars ke Disney+ Hotstar movies aur shows (All other stars have their shows on Disney+ Hotstar). Shah Rukh asks: “Accha?” Kaun baaki sab (Really? “Who all?” Rajesh names Akshay Kumar and Saif Ali Khan, as well as Sanjay Dutt. Shah Rukh starts to get upset and thinks. “Sabhai kya (Everyone’s there)” He says. Rajesh says, “Matlab Sab Toh Nahi Hai (Not all are there).” “Kaunnahi hai (Who’s not there)?” Shah Rukh asks. “Sir, aap (Sir you), Rajesh replies. He pointed at the crowd, and asked Shah Rukh to wave to his fans.
Karan Johar shared the ad on Instagram and wrote: “Never thought that I’d see a day when even the Baadshahs of Bollywood feel FOMO. I have seen it all! @iamsrk
The voiceover ends the ad by saying “Sabse bade star Disney+ Hotstarpe sab hai Shah Rukhke” (All the major stars except Shah Rukh are on Disney+ Hotstar). The ad ends by saying, “To be continued”.
Ranveer Singh also shared this video via his Instagram account, captioning it with “Inka sans humor toh alag Hai bhaisahab!” @iamsrk Ko bhi Fomo Ho sakta Hai (He has a different sense humour. FOMO can even be experienced by Shah Rukh. #siwaysrk #ad.”
