You love Shah Rukh Khan. You hate Shah Rukh Khan. But you simply don't copy Shah Rukh Khan.
Agreed, SRK has inspired a whole generation of audiences and budding actors and hence, all of us have a little bit of Rahul and Raj inside us. But then again, copying something as sacred and personal as this:
... Is just not done!
In fact, such is his mastery over the pose that he can do it anywhere under the sun.
In sarson ka khet .
In a stadium.
On a bridge.
On a boat.
In a desert storm.
Near a river.
Outside a wedding.
And being the gentleman that he is, SRK always happily offers to teach whoever wants to learn the epic pose from him.
However, even after relentless effort and several yoga classes, your arm muscles just won't align themselves in a way which resemble SRK's version. Do you know why?
Here are some people who tried to pull off an SRK and failed. Quite obviously.
Feeling stiff, Ironman?
Mission just got impossible!
Being Shah Rukh?
Oh for Christ's sake!
No. Don't even try.
Cute but not correct.
Try a doosra pose, Bhajji.
Romantic nights with Kapil? Erm.
Here to fulfill Shah Rukh Khan's destiny? Not quite!
Let's rub some SRK charm on the NRIs.
NRIs, don't listen to him.
I retired. Does anyone give a fuck?
I did not. Yet nobody gives a fuck.
The pose just hit its lowest.
And you know it's just not worth it when even Mahadev embarrasses himself at it.
Fuck this shit. I'd rather chop my arm off.
But hey, there is actually someone who's taking baby steps towards getting the pose right! Want to guess?
