SRK plays double role in 'Om Shanti Om'
Shah Rukh Khan plays a double role in Farah Khan's eagerly awaited "Om Shanti Om" and takes pot shots at many Bollywood stalwarts of the past, including Manoj Kumar, a source closely involved with film said.
King Khan plays Om, a struggling junior artiste in the 1970s, who is bumped off by a jealous hero played by Arjun Rampal.
While the theme of reincarnation and revenge is a direct tribute to Subhash Ghai's "Karz", there are several passages in the film where the biggies of the 1970s are targeted.
Apparently one of the primary targets of satire is Manoj Kumar, the man who wrote and re-wrote a considerable amount of the grammar and glamour of commercial Hindi cinema.
"But all in good faith. There's no malice intended in the satire. Shah Rukh and Farah are counting on the belief that people in the film industry have a sense of humour," the source said.
