Edinburgh Film Festival - 14-25th August 2002
Shah Rukh Khan Focus

Shah Rukh KhanThe Tom Cruise of Bollywood - or perhaps that should be: Tom Cruise is the Shah Rukh Khan of Hollywood. Either way, the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2002 is delighted to welcome of the cinema world's brightest stars and to spotlight three of Shah Rukh Khan's biggest hits. The films will be screened in Hindi with subtitles so you can enjoy the original unmediated Indian experience.

Shah Rukh Khan

Fountain Park, Dundee Street, Edinburgh EH11 1AF
Price: £10 (£4.50 conc.) Tel: 0131 623 8030

The leading man of Bollywood talks about ten yeas in front and behind the camera.

Shah Rukh Khan is a singing and dancing megastar although perhaps not in the west, but in the rush to jump the Bollywood bandwagon, he is sure to become as famous here as in India. He is an award winning actor with close to 50 films to his credit, as well as running his own production company. But he is more than this: he has single handedly changed the form by constantly challenging its rules. Shah Rukh Kahn is here to talk about his career, the new pretenders to his crown, and why he doesn't like love stories.

Directed by Santosh Sivan/2001/180 mins

Sunday 25th August 15:00, UGC
Fountain Park, Dundee Street, Edinburgh EH11 1AF

Epic retelling of Prince Asoka's journey from violent warrior to remorseful Buddhist.

AsokaAsoka, who came to power in the 3rd century BC, provides a complex character and a challenge for Shah Rukh Khan's acting (and dancing) talents. Emperor Asoka waged one of the bloodiest wars in history, ravaging neighbouring Kalinga. In the afterglow of battle, rather than celebrating victory he is wracked with remorse at the destruction of life prosecuted in his name and renounces violence. With shades of Asif Kapadia's The Warrior (EIFF 2001) Asoka is a prime example of the Bollywood Historical epic.

Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaayenge
Directed by Aditya Chopra/1995/192 mins
Starring Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Amrish Puri, Farida Jalal, Anupam Kher
Sunday 18th August 12:30 UGC
