Recently, reports of Shah Rukh Khan’s doodle to be auctioned had gone viral on social media and fans were praising the actor’s sense of humour. Reports of the doodle being sold for Rs 2 lakh also surfaced. Now, an official statement from Shah Rukh Khan’s team states that the doodle is not Shah Rukh Khan’s work. “SRK has not drawn the doodle. We have no clue how and from where this doodle suddenly popped up. It just has his signature and from what we know, it was drawn by a fan who asked Shah Rukh to autograph it, and he obliged. It is not his creation,” said a source close to the star.

The doodle from two decades back has surfaced in a film critic-journalist’s collection and is already set to go under the hammer at Osian’s The Greatest Indian Show On Earth 2. Along with the doodle, the auction will also feature paintings of other Bollywood celebrities apart from vintage film memorabilia and publicity material. The doodle features everything French, from Voltaire to the Concorde, from French kissing to L’amoure and the Eiffel Tower to the French Revolution.

Along with that, it also has hilarious sketches like King Kong rescuing a girl by climbing the Eiffel tower while the girl is shouting the all-time favourite Bollywood dialogue, “Bhagwan ke liye mujhe chhod do” and two stick figures of a couple with the caption, “Tu Mera Hero No. 1”.

On the work front, Shah Rukh is currently busy promoting his upcoming release, Jab Harry Met Sejal opposite Anushka Sharma and directed by Imitiaz Ali. He will next be seen in Aanad L Rai’s directorial co-starring Katrina Kaif and Anushka.
