King Khan is planning to invite around 400 barbers (with their families) from around Maharashtra for the premiere of his home production Billu Barber.
This news was confirmed by the director of Billu Barber, Priyadarshan. He added ‘Instead of having celebs over for the premiere of Billu Barber, Shah Rukh has planned to invite 400 barbers and their families to the premiere. His idea is to welcome barbers for the premiere on February 12, as the film revolves around Irrfan Khan, who plays a barber. Things are just getting organised for the première and the office is also in talks with the barbers’ association to get everything sorted for the big day.‘
Billu Barber’s story is about two childhood friends, one goes on to become a barber (played by Irrfan Khan) while the other becomes a superstar (played by SRK himself). Its a modern-day krishna-sudama story.
