As it was speculated, Shah Rukh Khan’s recent OTT announcement was nothing more than a promo for Disney+ Hotstar.
A day after breaking the internet with a supposed new streaming platform called SRK+, the actor posted a video on social media, revealing that it was all a prank.
The video started with SRK and Anurag Kashyap watching the news about SRK+, and the former asking the latter for his suggestion on what shows they should make for his OTT platform.
As he began sharing one idea after another, Anurag was told that all of those shows have already been pitched to Disney+ Hotstar. It ended with a voiceover saying that everything is already on the said platform.
While many previously expressed elation with the idea of SRK+, it is noted that a variety of news outlets have already predicted that there would be no such thing and that it could just be a promo or an extension of his collaboration with Disney+ Hotstar.
Meanwhile, Salman Khan, who was excited for the SRK+ announcement earlier, took to social media in good humour, writing, “Do not underestimate two things in life – Shah Rukh Khan and his sense of humour. Whether SRK+ releases or not, I enjoyed this a lot.”
