Bollywood is all set to make its presence strongly felt at this year’s Golden Globes. AR Rahman is already a top contender for the Best Musical Score for ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ and now news has it that Shah Rukh may become the first Indian actor to present an award at the prestigious award ceremony.
The King Khan is said to have been invited by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA).
Shahrukh is currently in Los Angeles, shooting for Karan Johar’s ‘My Name is Khan’. And the Golden Globes awards, organised by HFPA, is also being held there, so very likely the superstar may give away one of the awards.
Shah Rukh said to a news daily, “The organisers got celebrities to present nominees etc and want me to present a film in the Drama category, walk the red carpet, give interviews et al. It’s supposed to be a big honour. The guys who called me are from HFPA. Also, on the 11th, I have time off from shooting, so, it will be fun because Rahman is nominated for Slumdog. It will be nice to see him win.”
According to a source, “People from HFPA are in talks with SRK and are supposed to drop in on the sets of ‘My Name is Khan’ to extend SRK a formal invitation to attend the ceremony on January 11 at the The Beverly Hilton in LA. King Khan will have to sign an official letter confirming his presence at the ceremony.”
Karan Johar may also attend the function with Shah Rukh. Well, with the presence of the powerful trio – Rahman, King Khan and KJo at the Golden Globes will surely showcase Bollywood in the best possible light. Bravo!
