Dir: Maneesh Sharma
Starring: Shah Rukh Khan and Sayani Gupta
What happens when one fans passion for a superstar becomes a dangerous obsession?
This standard Bollywood drama was unsuccessful in the Indian box office but managed to succeed overseas. It has quite a lot of location work in England, with some of the second half filmed in London. There are aerial scenes around The Shard with Alexandra Bridge and Cannon Street Railway Station visible. Trains can be seen in the landscape, but they are too small to preclude an exact identity. There then follows an extraordinary sequence of events at King’s Cross station, masquerading as its neighbour St Pancras of all places!! (Why, just why?). Shah Rukh Khan is travelling to the Continent by train, and an HST pulls out with power car No.43309 on the rear with a fake ‘London to Dubrovnik’ dot matrix display in the cab windscreen!! Bollywood films are renowned for their poor continuity errors but this one seems a bit excessive. Class 365 EMU’s, Mk4 DVT’s, another HST set and a Class 91 electric are also visible in this scene. The adjacent power car to that pulling out is 43290, as identified through its nameplate – mtu fascination of power.
