In the entertainment business you never retire

Did you know there is an 'inspirational' connection between Shah Rukh Khan's next cinematic release, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, and his last television outing, Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hai?

Shah Rukh's dual looks in Rab Ne... are 'inspired' by two of the contestants from the game show. "The moustache look I have in the film was modeled after a contestant who used to work at a government electricity board. That character in the film is called Surinder Sahni," he says. Unfortunately, he adds, that particular contestant was evicted in the preliminary round itself.

"The second look in the film is hero material. The character's name is Raj Kapoor and the look is inspired by another Paanchvi Pass contestant called Bobby. I loved his look. When I complimented him, he said people called him John Ebrahim (John Abraham). That was very funny; I loved it. I have impersonated these two men in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi," says Shah Rukh.
