SRK’s tribute to Raj Kapoor on his TV show

Years back, Raj Kapoor narrated the life of a joker in a circus through his popular movie Mera Naam Joker, hinging on ‘The show must go on’ notion.  It was when SRK saw one of the contestants from Delhi with a joker’s nose that he trailed back to the golden era of cinema, dominated by the likes of Raj Kapoor, Dilip Kumar and Dev Anand. 

The ‘nose’ reminded Shah Rukh of late Raj Kapoor’s iconic character from movie Mera Naam Joker, which released in 1970. Shah Rukh, who has been tagged as ‘Bollywood badshah’ after carving a niche for himself in the industry with hits like Dil To Pagal Hai, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and Dil Se, also tried on a ‘joker’s nose’. The Happy New Year actor got nostalgic as he remembered the legend of Bollywood cinema.

Another interesting fact is that the &TV channel show, which will premier on the small screen on Monday, has been shot in RK Studio.
