IFFI 2009: Makrand Deshpande on “Shahrukh Bola Khoobsurat Hai Tu”


Filmmaker Makrand Deshpande’s new film “Shahrukh Bola Khoobsurat Hai Tu” is about a flower girl in Mumbai whose life changes after a chance meeting with actor Shah Rukh Khan who tells her that she is beautiful.

Khan plays himself in a two-minute cameo in the film, which is a sort of tribute to the Bollywood superstar.

Deshpande spoke to Reuters about “Shahrukh Bola Khoobsurat Hai Tu” on the sidelines of the 40th International Film Festival of India (IFFI) in the tourist haven of Goa.
