    That’s very weak, IMO. Hrithik, Aamir, Saif, AB Jr., etc. seem to have much more interesting films coming up (both from a BO point of view and in terms of good cinema).

    As far as I know SRK had a guest role in this movie, but now with the addition of Sushmita, and this article..seems like SRK has a full fledged role? Indeed a weak movie compared to SRK’s OSO and CDI!

    Jesse: SRK is doing a guest role in this movie. And for all said and done, he cares about his close people. Viveck Vaswani is his first producer and close friend. He was the (stand-in) producer for Raju Ban Gaya Gentelman. Now, he is serious dumps and asked SRK to bail him out. SRK accepted this guest role, but I think they wanna sell the movie on SRK’s name. It will be another Shakti-The power in SRK’s career. Its a guest role but will be sold using SRK’s name. That’s alright and people will see understand when they watch the movie.

    The last time SRK did a guest role was in KUCH MEETA HO JAAYE and before that SHAKTI-both those movies tanked:)..Don’t think it will matter much SRK or no SRK unless they publicise heavily as a SRK/SUSH starrer

    AS: SRK in KMHJ was sort of 2-3 min role whereas Shakti was proper 10-15 minute role. So, I’m expecting a 15-20 role in this Sush movie. And it would hardly make a difference to SRK and his career. But people here on NG wanna make an issue with this movie too. :-)

    This year, SRK is doing another 10-12 minute role in Ravi Chopra’s Bhoothnath as the husband of Juhi who dies after a time. Amitabh also stars in this one. That movie is for Juhi! :-)

    Sameer: I agree that it won’t affect SRK’s boxoffice career, however all my simple point is that I don’t think this movie will do any great business at the boxoffice eevn though the makers are evidently trying to advertise this as a “SRK/SUSH” film from the articles above:)

    I didn’t know SRK is in BHOOTNATH? I guess he is repaying the favour to Big B for PAHELI as well in a way:D

    I was a little skeptical about the the title “Dulha Mil Gaya”
    , but the complete title “Dulha Mil Gaya-Say Yes To A Relationship” is a winner…hands down 2 thumbs up

    Like Koi Mil Gaya spawned the Krishh franchise this one might be the beginning of a franchise…..a “DulhaRaaj” or a “DulhaBaaz”. A worthy challenge to Akshay’s Khiladi series.
