In the year 1996, 100 young filmmakers from 100 countries were invited to celebrate 100 years of the invention of cinema and pay tribute to Auguste Lumière and Louis Jean Lumière, popularly known as The Lumiere brothers. Each filmmaker was asked to choose his favorite star from his own country and make a documentary. Though ‘Chello Show’ director Pan Nalin was yet to make his first feature film ‘Samsara’ (2002) his short films and documentaries were already a global success then, The popular director instantly chose his favorite star, Shah Rukh Khan to shoot a documentary.

ETimes exclusively brings you that documentary that has never before seen footage of Shah Rukh Khan. The documentary was shot during the filming of ‘Karan Arjun’. This video by Pan Nalin is also a homage to Lumiere Brothers. The video starts with the opening shot of Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Karan Arjun’ and later it shows a few glimpses of the heavy training sessions that the actor went through for the movie. The video digs deep into the lifestyle of SRK which is indeed a treat for any King Khan fans.

Talking exclusively to ETimes, Pan Nalin said, “During the shoot of ‘Karan Arjun’, every day I was with Shah Rukh Khan, I was awestruck by his talent and humbleness. Wherever we went there was a massive crowd, be it outside his hotel in Rajasthan, on the shoot, at the airport, while we were driving through Mumbai, and or even outside his Bandra house. What I noticed is that he never showed a sign of fatigue toward his fans. Shah Rukh worked extremely hard, clocking in almost 18 hours of shooting every day, and I never saw him lose his focus that he was here to entertain. While watching him work every day, as a filmmaker the greatest life lesson I learned from him was that a great actor is not one who can dance, romance, laugh and cry but the great actor is one who makes the audience dance, romance, laugh and cry.”
Pan Nalin’s passion for cinema and filmmaking drew the attention of American and French producers, and they invited Pan Nalin to make this short film. Moreover, As a tribute to Shah Rukh Khan’s action entertainer ‘Pathaan’ nearing Rs 1000 crores, the ‘Chhello Show’ director Pan Nalin shared exclusive rare BTS action footage of King Khan from the superhit 1995 film ‘Karan Arjun’.
