It's been 13 years since Shah Rukh Khan and Kamal Hassan came together for 'Hey Ram'. On Saturday night, stars of the South film industry watched and applauded as SRK put up a very special and impromptu performance at a dinner hosted by Kamal in his honour.
In Chennai for the Chevalier Sivaji Award, constituted after veteran Tamil actor Sivaji Ganeshan, SRK went on to become the first Hindi film actor to be conferred the honour. But the excitement spilled over well beyond the ceremony. SRK had been invited to a small dinner at Kamal's house in Alwarpet. "But word soon got around and the actor-filmmaker was besieged with calls from his colleagues who wanted to meet SRK. And there was no way Kamal Sir could turn them down," said a source. At the very last moment, the venue was shifted to a high- "It was a treat watching them shake a leg together," said the eye witness, adding, "they got along like a house on fire as they performed the ' hook step ' from the song." SRK partied till 6 am. "He made his host and his Southern friends very happy indeed," said the source.
It took a while for the guests to be redirected. "The party started around 2.30 am. Several prominent members of the industry, including Vijay, Dhanush, Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Balaji Sakthivel, D Imman, A R Murgadoss were present," said the source. According to an eyewitness, Shah Rukh joined the party around 3 am, greeted the guests, even tried a few lines in Tamil. What would have ended with a cordial hand shake or a hug, took a different turn when the DJ started playing Chammak Challo. SRK went up to Kamal, who was chatting with a few guests at a distance, and literally dragged him to the dance floor.
