There is never been a superstar more charismatic than Shah Rukh Khan in Bollywood. He's not called King Khan for nothing. He is a man of many talents and recently one of his unmatchable talent came into the limelight and that talent is the art of doodling. According to a report by Mid-Day, Shah Rukh Khan, in 1997, on a trip to Paris created this doodle. The doodle is basically Shah Rukh Khan's idea of France. He has created the Bastille, the Concorde, Voltaire, the French Revolution, the French connection, King Kong climbing the Eiffel Tower with the damsel in distress, a pair of lips to denote French kissing and French General Charles de Gaulle. While doing do he added a little Bollywood touch to it with a Govinda-Karisma Kapoor track, 'Tu Mera Hero No 1' and a King Kong climbing up the Eiffel Tower with a damsel in distress screaming, 'Bhagwan ke liye mujhe chhod do.' He signed off with, 'In Paris, do as the Indians do.' Also read: Spider-Man's tribute to Shah Rukh Khan will drive away your Monday blues - Watch video
It is reported that the sketch is a part of film journalist-critics collection and is slated for Rs 1.2 lakh to Rs 1.8 lakh.
Osian founder-chairman Neville Tuli told mid-day, "The rare sketch is more like a doodle-cum-drawing of Shah Rukh's visit to Paris. It provides a unique insight into the mind of a cinematic superstar in the making. Though estimated conservatively between Rs 1.2 lakh to R1.80 lakh, it is expected to sell for more."
