Shah Rukh Khan teases OTT debut in Disney+ Hotstar's latest promo

The actor recently put out a promotional teaser with the streaming platform.


Mumbai: Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan has set the social media and his followers abuzz on Sunday when he posted a teaser on his social media that seemed to hint at a possible collaboration with Disney+ Hotstar. 

In the promotion for the OTT platform, the actor is shown having self-doubts after his manager points out that all his showbiz contemporaries have made their web debuts on the streaming platform. The ad takes a humorous dig at the star himself, as he is seen gloating over the sea of fans clamouring to catch a glimpse of their screen idol from the gallery of his residence. 

Khan then gets a reality check from his manager who reminds him that things may not always be so rosy in future if one does not keep up with the changing times. He enlightens the star that all his peers like Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, Saif Ali Khan and Sanjay Dutt have already made their appearances on Disney+ Hotstar via shows and films, while Khan is yet to make his debut on the web. 

The ad shows SRK having FOMO (Fear of Missing Out, for the unversed) anxiety as he takes in this piece of information.

The promo which ends with the teaser ‘To be continued’ was posted by the actor with the accompanying loaded caption of ‘Picture toh abhi baaki hain, mere doston’ – a popular dialogue from his film "Om Shanti Om" - which also seems to suggest along the lines of an upcoming announcement.

This was enough to set off speculation amongst the star’s zillions of fans and followers, on what could SRK be possibly hinting at. 

While the creative did not reveal any more details it definitely indicates a tie-up between the star and the streaming platform is on the cards. Whether it is for a new show, film or else an exciting new web series, remains to be seen.
