Janaki Vishwanathan’s first Hindi film ‘Bakrapur’ has an unusual protagonist in the movie – a goat named Shah Rukh but she has brushed off any reference to the Bollywood superstar.
“It has nothing to do with Shah Rukh Khan. You see people have a tendency to name their pet animals after actors or someone they love. The goat is integral to the story so we needed a name for it… Something catchy,” Vishwanathan told us when asked if it is an attempt to poke fun at Khan. “You see, the name is just Shah Rukh which literally means face of the Emperor,” she added. Asked if the 47-year-old actor has reacted or tweeted about this, Vishwanathan said she has not come across any comment so far.
