Nitesh Kumar Sahoo

It was like a 'dream come true' moment for many watching a video showing Bollywood Badshah Shah Rukh Khan hugging B Town's charming actor Kartik Aaryan during an event, went viral on social media. The video has now taken the internet by storm. 

The duo was captured sharing a great moment at the Umang 2022 Police Annual Awards show in Mumbai.. At first, the duo hugged each other and later SRK adored him during interaction. Kartik seemed to be quite humble in his approach towards the 'King of Romance'.

Meanwhile, the video of the bromance between Bollywood Badshah and the Shehzada has fuelled speculations about the duo teaming up for a new project. 

Will Koki replace SRK as 'King of Romance'? 

Recently, Karan Johar expressed his interest in the remake of the 1998 blockbuster Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. While the filmmaker is considering roping in Ranveer Singh, Sara Ali Khan and Janhvi Kapoor as a replacement for SRK, Kajol and Rani Mukerji, respectively, fans suggested that Kartik would be the best replacement for SRK as Rahul.

Koki's electrifying smile, naughty stance, comic timing, seriousness, romance and all other attributes as an actor as well as a human are highly admired by several movie lovers. While all these attributes closely resemble the characteristics of Rahul from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, instead of Ranveer, Kartik may be an apt replacement for the romance icon.

What do you think?

Fans would certainly love to watch SRK with Kartik onscreen in a movie. However, there are no such announcements as of now.  

SRK's new strategy to boost 'sinking' career!

On the work front, SRK is all set for a 'dhamakedar' comeback with Pathaan, which also stars Deepika Padukone as the lady lead. Fans are quite excited to watch SRK locking horns with John Abraham, who will be seen as the antagonist in the movie. 

Apart from that, SRK is also busy with two more projects including Dunki and Jawan.

SRK has teamed up with Rajkumar Hirani and Taapsee Pannu for the first time for Dunki. And this factor certainly has raised the expectations of movie lovers. 

Meanwhile, the Veer-Zaara actor is also prepping for Jawan. SRK has teamed up with south director Atlee for Jawan which also stars lady superstar Nayanthara. 

It seems SRK is experimenting with a new strategy to boost his 'sinking' career.

On the other hand, Kartik is riding high on the success of his recently released Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. The comedy horror movie, also starring Tabu and Kiara Advani, was declared a blockbuster as its worldwide box office collection went past Rs 250 crore while it was made at a budget of just Rs 90 crore. 

As of now, Kartik has multiple movies in the pipeline. The list of movies includes Freddy, Captain India, Shehzada, Satyanarayan Ki Katha, Dostana 2 and Kirik Party.

Kartik has already started shooting for Freddy, a romantic thriller packed with unpredictable twists and sharp turns. The movie also stars Alaya F as the female lead.
