If you are a Douglas Adams and SRK fan (who isn’t?), you’re going to be thrilled to bits. The Bollywood superstar has been invited to guest star on season 2 of American science-fiction series Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency by the show’s executive producer Arvind Ethan David.
The BBC drama, based on the Douglas Adams’ novel series of the same name, centres on the titular holistic detective who investigates cases involving the supernatural.
It all started when Shah Rukh Khan, who was clueless about the TV adaptation of the popular novel, posted a picture of himself on Twitter saying.
Dirk Gently is a TV series!! And I didn’t know it! Woe be upon me. Sorry Adams. The pic is for no apparent reason. pic.twitter.com/K2BWtCQ32a— Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) February 18, 2017
SRK’s tweet not only caught the attention of Arvind Ethan David, the author of the IDW comic series who’s involved in TV adaption, but also had a deal of being a guest star sealed.
The 51-year-old actor was quick to accept the invitation.
Let me know the time and place. Will figure out my own accommodation! https://t.co/epmqhSQDIx— Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) February 18, 2017
What followed was a thumbs up from David.
The show features Hollywood stars Samuel Barnett, Elijah Wood, Hannah Marks and Fiona Dourif.
