How Shah Rukh Khan Was Cast in the 1991 Short Film That's Now Viral

Shah Rukh Khan in a still from Mahaan Karz.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • The 17-minute film was based on a fable from the Bible
  • Director Dinesh Lakhanpal also wrote about his first meeting with SRK
  • Shah Rukh Khan received a salary of Rs 3,000 for his work in the film
This week, a little bit of Shah Rukh Khan's past was rediscovered online and 
went viral. It was a short film named Mahaan Karz that was made in 1991 to 
coincide with Easter: in SRK terms, it is ancient history - he was then 25 and a 
year away from debuting in Deewana opposite Divya Bharti; he's now 50 and a
 superstar.

Apropos of nothing, Mahaan Karz was uploaded on YouTube some days ago 
and has been circulating on social media since. The 17-minute film was based on
 a fable from the Bible and directed by Dinesh Lakhanpal, who, as explained via 
mail, has incorrectly been identified as a friend of SRK from stage. "He was not
 my old theatre buddy but for a short while was definitely a professional buddy,
 and it was a pleasure working with him," wrote Mr Lakhanpal, who also 
revealed just how it happened that Shah Rukh Khan was cast as a young man
 employed by a local maharajah in the redemption-themed film.

It's quite a lovely story. 25 years ago, SRK's star was already in ascent. He still 
lived in New Delhi but already had Fauji and Circus on his resume and so, 
when Mr Lakhanpal was recruited to direct Mahaan Karz for the advertising
 agency Alfred Allen Advertisers, producer Allen Luther asked him to cast the 
actor who played Lt Abhimanyu Rai in Fauji as the central character.

It was past 9pm when Mr Lakhanpal spoke to the young SRK on the phone. 
"He told me that he had met with a minor accident and was advised rest for a week
 or so, but I can come to his place anytime to discuss the script and the film. As it
 was already late, more so in a city like Delhi, 25 years ago, I tried to fix a 
time for the next day," wrote Mr Lakhanpal to us.

This was when he received "the first shocker," as he put it: "SRK very casually
 told me to come right then, if I wanted, as he would be awake till wee hours. 
Bombay was different but in Delhi, it was unheard of. As it is, it would have 
taken me more than an hour to reach him, but he was cool," Dinesh Lakhanpal
 wrote about his first meeting with SRK, known now to be a night owl.

"I was also eager to save time so we met for the first time at about 10.30 pm or 
so. He agreed to do the film and on being asked how much he would charge,
 as it was an one-odd low budget episode, he even offered to do it free, being a 
film on Easter," wrote Mr Lakhanpal. This was the second surprise and SRK 
appeared to be absolutely sincere in his offer.

Shah Rukh Khan did eventually receive a salary for his work in the film - 
Rs 3,000, which has far fewer zeroes than his pay cheques now but was considered a respectable sum then.

Mr Lakhanpal also has another story about the famously tardy SRK from the sets
of Mahaan Karz. The last day of filming was on a tight schedule and Shah Rukh 
Khan asked for a two-hour break to have a wound dressed. "He promised to be 
back in time but took much longer. When I asked him casually for the reasons of
 reporting back late, he, in his now world famous dimple-infected-smile, 
sheepishly whispered - I was trying to be a star," wrote Mr Lakhanpal.

SRK's wasn't the only name of note in the credits - in fact, his was not even
 the most illustrious, at the time. Cinematographer Binod Pradhan was then a 
bigger names and very busy. Producer Luther had just watched Parinda and 
asked if Mr Pradhan could be roped in and by happy chance, he had a window of
 four or five days - the reason for the rushed last day of shooting.

And now, in 2016, the Internet has resurrected a moment made possible by the 
aligning of stars. Watch Mahaan Karz here:

Yoga Helps In Resilience Against Non-Communicable Diseases



Yoga can contribute to resilience against non-communicable diseases and can be used for preventing and controlling many other lifestyle diseases, Health Minister J.P. Nadda said on Wednesday.

"Major non-communicable diseases like cancer, diabetes, cardio-vascular diseases, stroke and chronic obstructive lung disease are to a great extent due to unhealthy lifestyle. If the body is a temple of the mind, yoga creates a beautiful temple," said Nadda, who is leading the yoga session at 69th World Health Organisation (WHO) Southeast Asia region office (SEARO) summit.

The beverages included either no label at all, or one of five warning labels -- one featuring calorie content, and four displaying a variation of warning text.

The CAG’s Centre for Data Management and Analytics (CDMA) is going to play a catalytic role to synthesise and integrate relevant data into auditing process. This was stated by the Comptroller and Auditor General of India while inaugurating the Centre here today. He said the CDMA will help to enhance the efficiency and accuracy of evidence in the audit process and will be a game changer in the field of public audit. 

A brainchild of Shri Shashi Kant Sharma, the CDMA aims to build up capacity in the Indian Audit and Accounts Department in Big Data Analytics to exploit the data rich environment in the Union and State Governments. Shri Sharma had anticipated the challenges posed by such developments in the Government and realised opportunities arising from data analytics. This initiative focuses development of in-house capacity covering the entire workforce working under him. Shri Sharma also indicated that this was only the first milestone in the field of Big Data Analytics. He also hinted that the Centre will be located in a separate building once an appropriate location is identified. 

Prior to the setting up of the Centre, the CAG brought out a Big Data Management Policy for the Indian Audit and Accounts Department. A Task force was set up to study the policy document and recommend its implementation. The Task Force in May 2016 recommended setting up this Centre. The Centre is to be equipped with latest analytic tools and infrastructure to assist and guide the Data Analytic Groups constituted in all audit offices of CAG across the country through setting up the data management protocols and steering the data analytic capacity of the department. 

This initiative of CAG of India, puts it amongst the pioneers in institutionalising data analytics in government audit in the international community. CAG of India is also a member of an international project on ‘Data Analytics’ under the Working Group on IT Audit of International Organisation for Supreme Audit Institutions.
