Jayanth Seege, a Bengaluru-based freelance filmmaker made a unique New Year resolution like no other that he is hell bent on fulfilling.
He wants to meet Shah Rukh Khan and have him sign his film. And, if this means camping outside Mannat (SRK's house) for days at a stretch, so be it.
His obsession with SRK started when he saw an interview where the superstar stated that he hadn't signed any film after Zero. In an interview with Humans Of Bombay, Jayanth said:
In August, when I came across Shah Rukh Khan's interview where he said that he hadn't signed any new movies since Zero, I literally went bonkers. I was like, 'What if I get SRK to act in my movie?'
Jayanth made his first move by creating a movie poster and tweeting about. He even tagged SRK in the tweet, hoping to grab his attention but, nothing happened so he decided to change his strategy.
This crazy and probably very stupid! But I've had delusional dreams about working with you @iamsrk Last night after watching @RajeevMasand interview I frantically made this poster all night! pic.twitter.com/dzXSsnSIUa— Jayanth Seege (@JayanthSeege) August 11, 2019
In December 2020, he flew from Bengaluru to Mumbai in the hopes that he would narrate the script to the superstar face to face.
And ever since then, he has been waiting outside King Khan's house every day from sunrise to midnight to make his dream a reality.
With no progress in sight, Jayanth realized that he had to do something out-of-the-box and atrociously magnanimous just like SRK does in his movies.
So now he has decided to hang around Mannat and stay put until SRK signs his film. Jayanth said:
Here I am. And I'm going to stay put until he signs my movie.
Day 2: Thank you for all the tweets. Overwhelmed! A lil trivia about the poster. I made it overnight more than an year ago; on seeing @iamsrk 's interview! #SRK #PROJECTX #MakeItHappen https://t.co/OL19dAvvg6 pic.twitter.com/AHblMuZVVS— Jayanth Seege (@JayanthSeege) January 1, 2021
