MUMBAI: In a bid to give the noble cause of eye donation an impetus director Nagesh Kukunoor has got none other than the Baadshah of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan to do a cameo in his upcoming Marathi film Dhanak.
According to media reports, SRK recently shot for this movie in Rajasthan for two days despite his busy schedule.
Nagesh Kukunoor's last film Laxmi highlighted the plight of young girls forced into prostitution in Hyderabad. His film Dhanak, being made in Marathi, hopes to support the noble cause of eye donation. Even though Shah Rukh Khan’s role in the film is now known, buzz is that he will be playing himself in the film and will endorse the noble cause of eye donation.
Dhanak tells the story of the deep bond that an older sister shares with her blind, younger brother and how she works towards restoring his eyesight before he turns nine.
Dhanak which means a ‘rainbow’ in Rajasthani language is reportedly a remake of the Iranian film Besak. Even though the film’s title is Dhanak, it will be called as Rainbow overseas.
SRK is currently busy promoting his upcoming movie Happy New Year, directed by Farah Khan which is slated for Diwali release this year.
