The trailer of Yeh Jai Bakrapur featuring a ‘bakra’ named Shahrukh is out. The film, directed by national award winning director Janaki Vishwanathan, could turn out to be extremely controversial as the not-so-subtle hints at Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan’s own life is evident throughout the trailer.
- One stormy night, a superstar is born.
- Yeh Shahrukh hain na, kitna pyaara hai.. (screen reads Welcome to Bakrapur)
- Shahrukh ka bhi kaafi scope hai, atleast local brands ko toh endorse kar sakta hai
- A king among men…
- Shahrukh koi aisa waisa bakra nahi hai, special hai, farishta hai
With ‘Being Bakra is better than Being Human’ as its tagline, the makers have also used the Salman – Shahrukh rivalry to create curiosity around the film.
Even the poster of Yeh Hai Bakrapur has a bakra in sun glasses at a inauguration function. “Yahan Shahrukh Mein Rab Dikhta Hai”

However, the makers say the film has nothing to do with Shahrukh Khan “It has nothing to do with Shah Rukh Khan. You see people have a tendency to name their pet animals after actors or someone they love. The goat is integral to the story so we needed a name for it… something catchy.. You see, the name is just Shah Rukh which literally means face of the Emperor” said the films director .
When we tried contacting Shahrukh himself about the film, we were told by his manager that the actor knows nothing about the film.
