If things go according to plan, some members of the visiting South African contingent could be seen catching the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer My Name is Khan at a city theatre any of these days. And the ones most eager to watch the film are the players’ wives and girlfriends.
While the entire nation was riveted to the drama surrounding the release of the flick in theatres across the country, the South African cricketers and their WAGs too joined the party, getting engrossed in discussing the raging issue surrounding SRK and his film’s screening.
“The players and their partners spent the evening out shopping. And throughout the evening, they hotly debated the controversy surrounding this film. Surprisingly, most of them — the players as well as their partners — seem to be quite closely following Shah Rukh Khan and what he’s been up to in Bollywood, and they were wondering if it would be possible to watch the film at a theatre, provided they find time out,” the South African team’s local manager Samir Dasgupta told The Indian Express. “In fact, the women’s contingent — there are five of them — not only enlightened the cricketers who are curious about Shah Rukh Khan. They are even planning to quietly arrange and land up in some theatre to watch the film sometime over the next few days, while the five-day match will be in progress. There’s no concrete plan as of now though.”
