More about the auction
Along with SRK’s 1997 doodle, the auction will also feature paintings of other Bollywood celebrities. Names of those celebs have not been revealed. Shah Rukh’s way of expressing France is a mix of doodles that shows everything France is known for -- from Voltaire to the Concorde, from French kissing to L’amoure and the Eiffel Tower to the French Revolution. The sketch shows the creative side of the Raees actor.
Shah Rukh Khan has also displayed his humourous side by sketching some typical Bollywood scenes like King Kong rescuing a girl by climbing the Eiffel tower while the girl is shouting clichéd dialogue, “Bhagwan ke liye mujhe chhod do”. Two figures of a couple with text that says, “Tu Mera Hero No. 1”. Osian founder-chairman Neville Tuli told Mid-day, “The rare sketch is more like a doodle-cum-drawing of Shah Rukh’s visit to Paris. It provides a unique insight into the mind of a cinematic superstar in the making.” The event is likely to be held at a Bandra hotel on June 22.
