Dance Shah Rukh, dance!

To fling my arms wide
In some place of the sun,
To whirl and to dance
Till the white day is done.

Then rest at cool evening
Beneath a tall tree
While night comes on gently,
Dark like me.

That is my dream!

To fling my arms wide
In the face of the sun,
Dance! Whirl! Whirl!
Till the quick day is done.

Rest at pale evening...

A tall, slim tree...
Night coming tenderly
Black like me.
(Dream Variations by Langston Hughes)


In the middle ages, once you are bitten by a venomous Tarantula, it caused hysterical ailments and the only cure was dancing Tarantella till you drop.

Considering how Kolkata Knight Riders have been lowering the bar in IPL with mind-boggling consistency, if Shah Rukh Khan behaves like a Tarantula-stung, only those with a boulder for a heart would find fault with him.

And the man knows how to sidestep his way out of the woes.

Casting is just the red herring. SRK is back to what he does best, apart from stammering that is. Witnesses vouched, it was quite a dard-e-disco at a Mumbai builder's marriage party where SRK danced his woes away.

A cool Rs 2 crore cheque in his pocket, family sources assured SRK is feeling much better now.

Reminds me of "The expenses involved are huge, and I am not doing the figures. I will see what it is like at the end of the year and then, depending on the balance sheet, I will have to dance at a few more marriages."
Shahrukh Khan is ready to go the distance to make his IPL franchise, the Kolkata Knight Riders, a success

Nothin's good for him this time..Controversy after controversy and a string of losses for kkr. Now the Fake IPL player says he's gonna reveal his identity at the end of the last match KKR will play!

Btw Have added you on at, the blogroll for cricket blogs

Achettup, so the man kept his word! Lets's give Daredevils...I mean Knight Riders its due.

Som said...

Super Blogroll, mark my words. Now that SRK has left KKR in SA, the defeat margins would reduce. They would keep losing anyway.

Satrajit said...

Wont be surprised if KKR starts winning now :)

Som said...

Satrajit, incredulity has always been my strong point. I cleared my eyes but still could not see KKR winning. I maintain SRK's absence would lift the side but not enough to start winning. It's too late now.

straight point said...

you have to give his credit for least he is trying to serve...err save his ego...err...kkr...

Som said...

SP, I neither have the deep pocket nor the bachelor status. Else would have invited the poor fellow in my marriage party.

SRK has decided not to sell off his IPL team and in that case dancing is the only option that he has, I guess...May be he should open an dancing band along with the IPL team....what say?

Som said...

Anorak, as ppl in Kolkata have started saying, SRK is the only cheerleader-owner in IPL who dances to Buchanan's tune.
